The Obamas visited with the British royal family today in Buckingham Palace. This is the outfit Michelle chose for the occasion:
Seriously, would you wear this hideous outfit and, to add injury upon insult, spend more than $2,266 on it?
According to the Daily Mail, Michelle’s dress is by British designer Barbara Tfank. Los Angeles-based Tfank’s dresses retail at around £1,400 ($2266) And “as Michelle’s pale blue floral Fifties gown was customised especially for her – a bow was removed from the Resort 2011 collection gown’s waist – it would be worth considerably more.”
Despite splurging more than $2,266 on the hideous outfit, Michelle was upstaged by Prince William’s bride, the new Duchess of Cambridge (née Kate Middleton).
Catherine wore an off-the-rack “Shola” nude-colored bandage dress from Reiss, which cost a mere £175 ($283) — 1/8th the cost of Michelle’s outfit.
