The First Lady of the United States, 46, quite literally sparkled in a black, sequin-embellished skirt suit by the American designer, cinched with a wide belt. She finished the ensemble with matching black pumps, Joinfo.com reports with reference to US Magazine.
As for the cost? According to Michael Kors’ website, the Floral-Embroidered Stretch Pebble-Crepe Dinner Jacket retails for $4,995, while the slitted Floral-Embroidered Stretch Pebble-Crepe Slit Skirt rings in at $4,595, bringing the grand total to $9,590.
The look was in stark contrast to her step-daughter Ivanka Trump. The former VP at the Trump Organization, 35, modeled an unadorned magenta sheath by Roland Mouret, complete with an asymmetrical neckline that featured a peekaboo bra strap detail. The same dress is currently available in black on Farfetch.com for $2,995.
Though it was a polished look, the Roland Mouret dress caused a bit of a controversy on Twitter. While President Trump, 70, urged those assembled and at home to “buy American,” Mouret is a French designer, a fact that wasn’t lost on social commentators. Many also felt that the first daughter’s “cocktail dress” was inappropriate for Congress.
