What, No One Wants To Dress Like Michelle Obama Today?

By: Catherine Strawn / June 23, 2009

The Thakoon dress Michelle Obama wore on the final night of last year’s Democratic National Convention is on sale on Gilt Groupe today for $498 and, surprisingly, wasn’t the first item by the designer to sell out (it was still available at 12:45). Were customers afraid to buy it for fear that when they wear it everyone will recognize it as Michelle Obama’s dress? [Gilt Groupe]
