All eyes were on First Lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday night as she took the stage at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., wearing a custom-made dress by designer Tracy Reese. Of course, the main attraction was the first lady's speech, but once again the fashion world took notice of her fashion sense.
The sleeveless, full-skirted dress was crafted from a shimmery pink-and-gold brocade print, which transitioned to a blue-and-gray bottom trim. The choice was unexpected and elegant. On her feet were a pair of “rhubarb” heels from J. Crew, one of Obama's favorite brands.
No official word on the price of Obama's custom-made dress, but Tracy Reese dresses range from $148 to $448 on the designer's site.
Obama kept her accessories minimal but made a bold choice with her nail color. It appeared to be a purple-gray hue and complemented her choice of dress nicely.
