As it always happens with the First Lady’s of the White House, there “fashion” trends become headline news, along with items like “the Obama girls are shirking their Puppy duties!” So, this week’s fashion tidbit on MO has her still advertising for JCrew, but also sporting $540 sneakers while participating in a Food Bank food drive with Second Lady Jill Biden:
Michelle Obama has taken casual to a haute new level.
While volunteering Wednesday at a D.C. food bank, the First Lady sported her usual J.Crew cardigan, a pair of utilitarian capri pants and, on her feet, a sneaky splurge: trainers that go for $540.
That’s right: These sneakers – suede, with grosgrain ribbon laces and metallic pink toe caps – are made by French design house Lanvin, one of fashion’s hottest labels. They come in denim and satin versions, and have been a brisk seller all spring.
I don’t know about you, but my WalMart sneakers serve the same purpose, and they were only $15.00 !
