Readers of US Weekly might have had some sticker shock when they saw a  headline yesterday breaking the news that Ann Romney’s debate-night dress  retails for $1,690.

But it turns out Michelle Obama’s debate ensemble cost twice as  much.

The US Weekly piece went on to report this, but somehow the Obama outfit  pricetag was not mentioned in the headline.

That headline read:  “Ann Romney Wears $1,690 Oscar de la Renta Dress to Presidential  Debate”

The announcement might have fit well with President Obama’s references during  that debate to the Romney family’s enormous wealth. The president joked at one  point that he doesn’t look at his own pension, because it’s not as big as  Romney’s.

But both families, it turns out, can afford very nice clothes.

While Ann Romney was sporting a “short-sleeved crimped cotton silk dress by  Oscar de la Renta,” that is not yet in stores, as US Weekly reported, the first  lady was wearing a “hot pink” outfit of her own — that together cost  $3,290.

“Obama, 48, styled a shift dress and cropped jacket from Michael Kors’ 2013  resort collection. The dress retails for $1,795 and the jacket is $1,495,” the  magazine reported.

The pink dresses were in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
