People are talking about the dress First Lady Michelle Obama just wore at the White House State dinner for the nation of Singapore. It’s definitely raising eyebrows.
The strapless gown was designed by Brandon Maxwell, who is also the stylist for Lady Gaga. Michelle wore it while dining with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his wife Ho Ching. These gowns cost as much as $7,000 and perhaps more… and the taxpayers received the bill!
As WND reports:
The First Lady wore an ivory-colored Brandon Maxwell dress, according to a White House pool report. The New York-based designer is a favorite of Lady Gaga’s, and he recently helped Iman celebrate her birthday. Maxwell was overseas Tuesday night, but said via e-mail, “It has been an incredible honor for me and my team to create this dress for the First Lady. Strong and elegant, she is the embodiment of the woman that inspires me to create, and a role model for women all over the world.”
Earlier Tuesday during a tour of the National Gallery of Art with Mrs. Lee, FLOTUS wore a sunflower-colored sleeveless Naeem Khan dress. Khan said via e-mail Tuesday that the dress was designed “with the idea of something similar to a dress in my resort 2017 collection. We chose a flattering sleeveless and A-line style for quintessential summer entertaining, in yellow Guipure lace, with three-dimensional flowers.”

Perhaps Michelle could learn a lesson from Ivanka Trump, who just wore a fashionable dress to the Republican National Convention (RNC) that cost $158.
