Michelle Obama shines in custom white satin tuxedo & $1,000 caged booties during NY book tour stop
Former first lady Michelle Obama stuns crowds in a custom white satin tuxedo and designer caged booties during her New York book tour.
Michelle Obama's memoir “Becoming” is the current No. 1 adult nonfiction title in many countries. She is currently on tour to promote the book.
However, as attention-grabbing as her book is, her outfit stole the show at a recent tour stop. The stunning former first lady stunned the crowds in Brooklyn, New York with her outfit choice.
She wore a custom-made Brandon Maxwell satin twill tuxedo in a stunning white color. The suit is from the Spring 2019 collection.
She paired the gorgeous suit with a pair of Jimmy Choo caged leather high-heel booties in the same white color. The beautiful booties cost a whopping $1000.
“If people flipped through a magazine primarily to see the clothes I was wearing, I hoped they’d also see the military spouse standing next to me or read what I had to say about children’s health,” Michelle once said when asked about her style.
She completed the look for the interview by wearing her hair loose around her shoulders in natural waves. Her makeup and accessories were kept to a minimum as well.
During the interview, she discussed her book, "Becoming." Book analysts and critics have received it positively. The Washington Post praised the book in their review calling it an “impressive balance in telling the truth of her challenges while repeatedly acknowledging her lucky life.”
Obama's memoir “Becoming,” has bested other memoirs written by previous First Ladies. She has sold over 1.4 million copies in one week.
She recently made the decision to cancel some stops on her book tour. She did so in order to take a break to attend the funeral of George H.W. Bush
“It’s important for me to join the Bush family in celebrating President George H.W. Bush’s exemplary life. This will unfortunately preclude my visits to Paris and Berlin. I’ve been deeply touched by the enthusiasm for my memoir, and I’m working to reschedule my trip for next year.” tweeted Obama on Sunday.
