Last night, Michelle Obama shined bright in the audience at her husband’s final State of the Union address, deliberately seated next to a vacant chair–left vacant to represent the victims of gun violence in Chicago and across the nation–in a stunning mustard-yellow Narcisco Rodriguez dress.
Naturally, fans of the fashionable First Lady scurried to internet retailers to try their best to get their hands on the dress, priced at $2,095 on Neiman Marcus, but the majority were disappointed. No sooner did President Obama begin his pleas to fight cancer and gun violence in America did the dress sell out online–at retail price to boot.
This isn’t the first time the First Lady put a designer’s name in lights either. Back in 2009 at the inaugural ball, Obama rocked designer Jason Wu‘s gown to the festivities, making his fabrics among the most coveted in the nation.
