It's no style secret that Michelle Obama's wardrobe choices have sparked an American shopping frenzy. The White House/Black Market dress she wore during a June appearance on "The View" sold out across the country. The moderately-priced dress showed that Mrs. Obama is anything but a fashion elitist, though she does favor designers like Narciso Rodriguez and Thakoon. And Michelle's latest sartorial selection, as seen on the campaign trail, was even more budget-friendly: this black-and-bordeaux striped dress from cheap-chic retailer H&M!
Whether or not Michelle donned this frock as a nod to budgeting fashionistas during the nation's economic crisis, or simply because she's an H&M fan, we may never know (Though Obama did tell People magazine, "Some of my favorite summer dresses are from Gap and H&M"). What we do know for sure? Clad in looks from the runway or straight off the rack, Michelle Obama shows us how to be classy, confident and glamorous at any price.
