Michelle Obama Wears $39.99 Jason Wu for Target Dress: Cheap or Chic?

Michelle Obama has done it again. She has managed to look chic in a $39.99 dress, which she wore over the weekend at a press event in Florida, TODAY.com reports. That said, Michelle Obama's navy floral chiffon dress happens to be from the coveted Jason Wu for Target collection, which makes it slightly more fashionable.



The first lady -- who is known to customize her outfits -- replaced the gold belt with a red one and layered the look with a a royal blue cardigan, The Huffington Post reports. The occasion? Eating dinner with a local family in Ocoee, Fla.

Mrs. Obama is basically responsible for launching Wu's career when she wore one of his gowns to the president's 2009 inaugural ball. Wu's new, cheaper line has been a hot seller at Target since it launched on Super Bowl Sunday -- a Florida couple bought $7,000 worth with the intention of making a profit when the line sells out, according to The Daily Mail.

Do you love how the first lady (like Kate Middleton) wears "ordinary" designers that real people can afford? Or should she class it up beyond a $39.99 dress? She is married to the president of the United States, after all...

    Michelle Obama made it look stylish. She wears a $10,000.00 gown as effortlessly as a $40.00 shift. That is the essence of chic.

    I find it very interesting that Michelle Obama gets slammed by buying a designer dress and then gets slammed for buying a dress on sale at Target.
    Is it just my imagination or are there people who can't accept anything she does?

    You're right... she and Obama spend Amerians tax money instead... on everything from vacations, food, clothing, parties, golf, facelifts, dental work, etc. ... you name it.. we're paying for it .. including free rent for her mother, who has lived in the White House since day one .. and food/housing/medical, etc. for his auntie who is here illegally and living in Boston off the welfare dole! Get real fools!

    Its about time that she didn't spend taxpayer$$$ on her outfit and entourage like a pissed off girlfriend with your platinum card.

    but its a big fat political joke---because it was pointed out that it was so inexpensive----so are you telling me that the Obamas are frugal now?! LOL!!! Why didn't she point out all those $5,000 designer outfits and the 20 people she had with her to "attempt" to make her presentable for their trips??

    She is as much of a politician as her wannabe dictator career politician husband... always getting the votes..... yep----frugal people make responsible and "frugal" leaders...

    people are such sheep.

    no, Im really not.....I was just saying that maybe I shouldnt wonder WHY a person like Obummer won the election with his questionable citizenship, questionable character (for saying things like the "constitution is a flawed document"), and VERY questionable friends (Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers etc) when there are sheep out there that would say "its cool----shes just like us" when the wannabe-queen wears normal clothes for once...

    Since you responded like that----I'd guess that you must've voted for no credit limit/hope and change/debt boy----your great grandchildren will really appreciate you for it as they continue to be slaves to bankster interest....

    Wow, are some people gulible.

    Wearing this dress and broadcasting that it was inexpensive was an orchestrated stunt in a desperate campaign to rehab the image of Michelle Obama, who Americans have learned is a bizarre hybrid of Marie Antoinette

    and a New Black Panther thug.

    "Can Michelle Obama's Media Blitz Erase Her 'Angry Black Woman' Image?

    In this election year, though, there is a whole lot more going on "under the radar." While still widely admired, Mrs. Obama has come under considerable criticism for her "angry Black woman" attitudes and her comments revealing, shall we say, a lack of enthusiasm about America and conveying an unseemly attitude of superiority toward mainstream Americans. Something had to be done before the fall election."

    this "angry black woman" thing is a load of ultra-conservative crap. She's always worn tasteful clothing and she's a strong woman, I admire her, and I don't buy into this garbage your slinging.

    Even if I was rich I'd not wear something I don't like just because it's expensive. I'd choose by what looks good on me. And this dress certainly is cute.

    Every thing this great gal does is for the American people. She was a "hit" in Florida and we can not wait till she comes back.

    She dressed for the occasion and it was a great.

    Let's face it. People bitch and moan when she spends a lot of money on a dress and they will bitch and moan when she pays the same amount I would.

    I think she looks good. :)

    I think some people like to complain about anything. If she wares an expensive dress she is wasting money. If she re-wares a dress she's not fashion forward enough. If she wares a dress from Target, like most Americans, she is cheap. Really there is more to complain about then what someone wears.

    At least she didn't spend thousands of dollars on it. In all honesty though, I don't care what she wears, I care about her husbands policies screwing up America. But, that is for another thread, so for now, I'll just say I think the dress looks good on her.
