She’s the queen bee of sleeveless dresses, mostly let’s be honest down to those killer arms, and now one of Michelle Obama’s favourite dresses has been restocked due to popular demand!
Michelle Obama's ASOS dress
The ASOS red and white check pleated dress which she first wore back in the summer of 2011 will be going back on sale on ASOS next Monday 25th February. The Mobama effect is a powerful one, causing items she’s worn to sell out within hours of being snapped. When she wore a $35 dress by her favourite designer, Jason Wu’s collaboration with Target, the dress sold out online and in stores within hours. –including one couple who bought their local branch’s entire stock of the dress ($7000 worth with the intention of flogging them on Ebay for an inflated price. Nifty business people non? Similarly her J.Crew embellished belt (from their bridal collection) which she wore over her Thom Browne coat sold out instantaneously. Sheesh that is one power couple.
We’re massive fans of the ladylike, print-perfect ‘50s style frock which the First Lady rocked during an official visit to New Hampshire and Maryland. She belted hers up with a navy belt, going all American flag for her work trip. If there’s one thing we really enjoy, it’s a theme, and Mrs O went to town on this one.
We’ll be styling ours up with clashing printed pointed-toe court shoes like these from Nine West and heaps of statement jewellery. Have a look through our gallery below to see all ASOS pieces which Mrs.O has worn and loved...
