Michelle Obama Stuns In Marigold Dress At State Of The Union
Michelle Obama stole the spotlight at her husband President Barack Obama‘s final State of the Union address Tuesday night.
Michele Obama’s SOTU Dress
The FLOTUS opted to wear a marigold midi-dress by Narciso Rodriguez. The wool crepe, sleeveless number instantly caught the eyes of viewers at home, and soon sold out online. The dress, which originally sold at Neiman Marcus for $2,095, had been reduced to a sale price of $628.

At last year’s State of the Union, the First Lady memorably channeled Julianna Margulies’ The Good Wife character Alicia Florrick in a Michael Kors suit. Obama wore Azzedine Alaïa in 2014, Jason Wu in 2013, Barbara Tfank in 2012, Rachel Roy in 2011, Isaac Mizrahi in 2010 and, fittingly, Narciso Rodriguez at her first SOTU in 2009.
Obama, who has had many memorable fashion moments during her stay at the White House, revealed her appreciation for the art during a fashion workshop for students a couple of years ago.
“When it comes to the fashion industry, so often people think it’s all about catwalks and red carpets and ‘who wore it best,’ and whether some famous person wore the right belt with the right shoes,” the First Lady said. “But the truth is that the clothes you see in the magazine covers are really just the finished product in what is a very long very complicated and very difficult process, as I’ve come to learn working with many designers.”
“Fashion is about so much more than just a pretty pair of pumps or the perfect hemline. For so many people across the country, it is a calling, it is a career, and it’s a way they feed their families,” she added. “So, that’s why we thought it was important to bring the industry to the White House, and to share it with all of you who are coming up in the next generation.”
