Michelle Obama hearts Jason Wu for Target
She famously wore his frothy white design to her husband's inauguration ball, propelling Jason Wu's name into households around the world. And now Michelle Obama is supporting Jason Wu again - albeit on a rather smaller scale - while watching her pennies. The First Lady chose to wear a Jason Wu for Target dress - costing around $40 - to a home visit in Ocoee, Florida, where she ate dinner with a local family over the weekend.
The navy floral chiffon dress cost a fraction of what the Taiwan-born designer usually charges for his coveted frocks, which run into the thousands of dollars. Michelle chose to pair her dress with a red belt instead of the yellow one that came with it, and topped it off with a blue cardigan. Unfortunately, this dress is now sold out online, but you still may be able to find it in stores. I was lucky enough to find it in my size (warning: it runs big!) and can't wait until the weather gets warmer so I can wear it.
