Michelle Obama’s Target Dress Causes Shopping Frenzy

michelle obama

Michelle Obama may be the First Lady but she isn’t above shopping at Target. Obama was recently spotted out in a dress from the department store while talking about her Let’s Move campaign in Florida.

According to the Huffington Post, Michelle was wearing a dress designed by Jason Wu for Target. The Sleeveless Chiffon Dress in Naval Floral with Gold Belt retails for $39.99. The First Lady did alter the dress a little.

The Target dress comes with a gold belt but Michelle opted for a red one.

The Hollywood Life reports that Obama is a big fan of designer Jason Wu. She wore one of his dresses to President Obama’s inauguration ball and apparently she’s also a fan of his more affordable line.

But Michelle shopping at Target shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. She’s been spotted frequently during her time at the White House in clothes from stores like Target and the Gap.

Unfortunately, you’ll have to wait a little bit if you want to duplicate Michelle’s Flotus style. The Sleeveless Chiffon Dress in Naval Floral with Gold Belt is no longer available at Target.

    I am happy to see mrs obama shopping like all of American women do. Ann romey's thousand dollar blouse she wore one one occasion is more than most of us spend in a year on our clothes.THANK YOU Mrs Obama for being so down to earth especaily when most of working American are struggling pay check to pay check!

    "She wore won of his dresses to President Obama’s inauguration ball and apparently she’s also a fan of his more affordable line". I miss real journalism. That would be, "wore ONE of his dresses".

    Have you been on the same planet in which we all live? "Down to earth"???? Please….at least, AR PAID for her blouse….whereas, the taxpayer pays for MO elaborate parties, travel…blah, blah, blah….this Target dress is all a smoke screen….all political, all fake….

    From an August 1, 2012 article:

    "Back in May, Ann Romney, wife of Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, wore a $990 Reed Krakoff silk shirt for a media appearance. The item of clothing set off a media firestorm, with
    the "Romneys widely accused of being “out of touch” with average Americans."
    "Fast forward to last Friday, when First Lady Michelle Obama attended an Olympics reception for heads of state at Buckingham Palace, donning a J. Mendel cap sleeve jacket from the 2013 Resort collection."

    The price-tag? $6,800.

    “The media’s overabundant love affair with the Obamas has become increasingly blatant as this election draws nearer. Scrutinizing Mrs. Romney for a fashion choice that cost considerably less than that of the First Lady is yet another example of the media being purely sanctimonious.”

    We get it Sandy. Your beloved Michelle Antoinette is such a thrifty little shopper, mostly on the taxpayer's dime, and the elegant Mrs. Romney, who pays for her own lovely wardrobe, is just such a horrible person. Your beloved Michelle Antoinette can wear $600 sneakers to the soup kitchen but Heaven forbid Mrs. Romney wears designer anything. You low-information libs are pounding the final nail in the coffin of this once great Nation.

  6. Richard Kibet

    She is in touch with the common American. No wonder they won 4 more years tenure at the white house.

  7. Linda Schmaelzle

    No – Michelle pays @ $500 for sneakers to wear while working at a "soup kitchen." Or @ $5,000 for a simple jacket….Targets – really…???

  8. Mary Renz Braun

    How much is Target putting in Mechelle's personal piggy bank for all the name dropping, while "WE" the general public pays for the high $$$ stuff? That woman is so Phoney, I want to throw up!

  9. Cheryl Wacker Spangler

    Like her vacations….her 500.00 shoes to work in a soup kitchen…..right

  10. Mary Ann Oliver

    sorry, she is not beautiful, shes big, oafy almost, manly looking, and you keep thinking she bought that dress, they give it to her for showing up in it, probably thousands, gap too..don't care for their clothes, target is highly over-rated..sorry..

  11. Lee Piper

    don't know what your looking at to say she's beautiful. You see something I don't see. She is not beautiful, "look " at Laura Bush , Jackie O, and Nancy reagan, now that's beautiful. They are what I call "First Ladies". MO is what I call 'otherwise". They dressed like first ladies should and I wish we had another first lady that knew how to dress. so big deal her dress came from Target, {wanna bet} shouldn't say that even Target makes dresses that look better.

  12. Montessahall Montessahall

    Lee Piper – real interesting comment coming from you, a white woman. Mrs. Obama is beautiful in her own right, not to be compared to other white first ladies…why would you make that comparison anyway? what is the point? Mrs. Obama is the "exceptional" first lady. There has never been anyone like her…the ones you refer to are the "otherwise".

  13. Margaret Moyer

    There is an "old saying"….if you can't say anything good! don't say anything at all….that fits in right here!

  14. Louisa Duverger

    Sorry don't mean to be rude to my elders but you sound racist you think Nancy Reagan is prettier than Michelle Obama? Really all I think you see in skin color. (sad world to live in)

  15. Lauren Brooks

    The worked hard and had money before becoming America's first family. And each first family is afforded luxuries, which they all deserve, no matter their political party. So singling out the Obamas is a reflection of your own prejudices. And with all that's going on in this country and world, who cares about a frickin dress?

  16. Gail Lane

    So we pay for the 4 millions dollar vacation and you are gungho on her dress she wore. Did I just bump my head. What a crock of crap. Maybe they should of stayed home for there vacation instead of spending more of our money that doesn't belong to them in the first place.

  17. Chantelle Comas

    Michelle Obama doesent pick out her own clothes, all she probably does is show up their early they do her makeup, hair, and tell her to wear the cheap target clothes that way she can look like she "cares" about us and wants us to think wow, this lady is just like us ! She probably never see that dress again. Fed it to her dogs when she got home as a blanket.

  18. Chantelle Comas

    I dont know where she is beautiful because her face is ugly,but I guess everyones opinion is diffrent.

  19. Chantelle Comas

    Louisa Duverger stop with the racist comments I HATE WHEN BLACK PEOPLE ALWAYS GOTTA ASSUME THAT WE ARE BEING RACIST JUST BECAUSE WE DONT AGREE WITH OBAMA…ITS NOT ALL ABOUT THE RACE YOU KNOW.

    I dont think michelle obama is ugly because she is black , i just think she doesent dress up well and isnt fancy and elegant. It has nothing to do with her color. Im tired of colored people always assuming that just because someone who is white comments something negatively about the obamas it automatically means we are being racist.

    Lee Piper I bet you have seen (on tv atleast) all the beautiful first ladies..?

  26. Gail Lane

    Hey dont like it got back to your country and take obama with you.

  27. Pam Morris Branyon

    I hate the way she wears her belts right up under her boobs. Looks ridiculous

  28. Michelle Scott

    Haters just want to hate, why don't the people who really think the Obama's are fake and spent 4 millions on their vacation (as if no one else takes a vacation to Hawaii which happens to be where he was raised) and can't stomach that he got four more years move to another country if the US is so intolerable. Get the hell out if you think you can do better elsewhere or shut up and deal with it.

  29. Mariane De Mesa

    Lee Piper I agree with Jackie O but NANCY REAGAN???? LAURA BUSH???? Those woman were so out of touch with the common American woman.

    Chantelle Comas , Sorry, but you're not much of a looker, so who are you pass judgement? As if , you're such a beauty. The First Lady, is smart, She's intelligent and She's as classy as She is elegant. I guess, you didn't take a look at your road kill picture before you posted it. You look like someone who was put out to dry in the sun before you took that picture.

    Chantelle Comas And you think that you are beautiful ? Don't think we'll be reading about a worthless piece of shit like you anytime soon.

    When you go to work, do you get a paycheck? Do you buy your clothing with said paycheck? Why should her family be any different? Get over yourself, Freda. And get a clue.

  33. Diana Morales

    Chantelle – I'm obviously not black and I think that Granny up there is a clueless racist. Seriously, Nancy Reagan? She looked like freaking E.T.!
    So sick and tired of you idiot people thinking you know something. Hint: YOU DON'T.

  34. Diana Morales

    And who pays for your vacations, Gail? What an asinine comment. On both counts.

  35. Diana Morales

    What's not to believe? She's wearing the dress. The dress is from Target. How stupid can you be? You must be one of those who believe everything is a conspiracy. Pathetic.

    Gail I dont live in your country but make sure you leave too and free the native Americans from the jails you call reservations after your ancestors stole the land from them and called it the land of the free. hope you will be welcomed wherever it is they ran away from that is if this is the route you want to take this conversation because apparently this is what ails you and Donald trump so much.

    He won re-election because more people want ' free stuff ' from the government. From Welfare to Obamaphones, free birth control pills , yada yada yada . Then you have the government unions growing larger and larger , with more money being funneled into the Democrook Party . Richard, you should be appalled at the number of abortion clinics in the black and Hispanic communities in America .

    Lee Piper you're not cute in any way,shape,or form. aren't you supposed to be on your death bed??
    btw,you look like poor white trash.

    Old news. Jason Wu for Target came out about a year ago, and Michelle Obama has worn this dress before. Everyone knows that she likes Jason Wu, everyone knows that she's not above fashion for the masses (J Crew is a favorite in the Obama household.) And? Not 'newsworthy' and nothing new in the fashion world.
