AMERICAN ROYALTY: Michelle Obama’s Inaugural Dress Comes in at a Measly $10,000

Back in January 2009, Barack Obama told Americans that,
“Everyone must sacrifice… Everyone must have some skin in the game.”

Well… Everyone but Barack and Michelle Obama.

Michelle Obama’s Thom Browne Inaugural dress comes in at an estimated $10,000.

Enstraz reported:

First Lady Michelle Obama impressed fashion experts and amateurs alike with her inaugural outfit Monday morning created by New York-based designer Thom Browne, mostly known for his menswear collections.

The First Lady wore a navy silk jacquard coat and dress outfit in a checked pattern specially designed for her.

“I wanted ‘tailored’ for her. For me, she stands for strength and confidence, and that’s what I wanted to design for her,” Browne told the Associated Press about his creation for the First Lady’s inaugural dress.

According to the designer, the outfit was inspired by a men’s silk tie. It is unclear what the cost of the outfit was, but it could likely be at least $10,000, according to Enstars’ estimates. However, the actual price has not been confirmed and there is no word yet on whether the dress and coat outfit will be rolled out for customers.

    Media has also destroy this nation. They have a love affair and in some occasions met with Obama for tea and talks about how to take the “OTHERS” down.

    Liberal media is the enemy and it keeps on lying and not reporting only bias and until……
    well, they change, which I don’t see happening they just won’t care about reporting truth and facts, on both sides.

    Hey, hey, that dress is probably a symbol of social justice!

  • flyover

    WGN-TV 9:00 news edition, the fawning over the beautiful dress was nauseating, of course they didn’t mention any cost. But, they did let us know that the boots were custom made, “just for her” with the dumbest grin and giggles. The harping and disgust that would have spewed if this had been that rich, evil Romney woman.

    Thanks to Gatewaypundit for providing a forum for us to spew hatred!

    The dress may be worth $10,000 but that does not mean she purchased it. New York-based designer Thom Browne was very happy to design an inaugural dress for her and then let her parade around in it. Most likely, she will return it and the designer can keep it or auction it off. Where would she ever wear it again? Had any of you heard of Thom Browne before? This is exactly why her dress is handled this way. It’s called “marketing”. The rich and famous do it all the time.

    I detest the Obamas and would never vote for the man, but I think it’s wrong to go on and on about something when the people commenting have no idea what they are talking about.

    Mrs.Obama looks absolutely stunning as she always does. She is impeccable, sophisticated, and fun. She does a fabulous job representing the United States, and as an example to women and mothers everywhere. I admire her tremendously.

    What’s wrong?

    Let me be clear, we are grossly over-spending. But, I don’t care!

    $10,000.00 for Michelle’s dress includes the high capacity girdle to keep her sagging arse in place! It’s a custom made high cost item!

    Sure, I my policies suck! But, every time I fill up the Limo it costs the tax payers $400.00 That makes me look a charlatan. And, when I fill up the jumbo jet it’s about a quarter million dollars! And, I look even worse – except for the fact that my wife’s arse looks much worse! I can’t answer any more questions. Good day.

    She also takes very expensive vacations on our dime.

    That’s a coat, not a dress. My coat cost a couple thousand too and I wouldn’t place my self in the same earning category…

  • Dave

    You know, a lot of you all who comment on this message board often have perfectly valid things to say and perfectly reasonable grievances, and really, your voices ought to be heard. I mean, I was complaining that this outfit was a non-issue, but sure, maybe you should point out how there could have been some restraint. Again, it’s not like the cost was unprecedented, but that is a complaint that comes from a place of rational thinking. But, do you all not understand that when you have “news” items like Clinton’s photobomb, or when you have posters with entirely outlandish claims like “Michelle Obama was in Hawaii the whole time, that picture is a fake!!” you all lose credibility?

    I’m sure she had to have her boots specially made because her feet are so big. Kind of like her butt.

  • http://Nah,he'llblameitonBush mountainwilliam

    I’ve seen lots of beautiful black women, but she is definitely not one of them.
