Michelle Obama Dons $2,300 Crystal-Embellished Pink Suit to Promote Her Memoir in Denmark
Michelle Obama paid homage to Copenhagen as she stunned in a crystal-embellished suit by Danish designer Stine Goya while promoting her best-selling memoir, Becoming.
On Tuesday night Michelle spoke at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen during the first leg of her European tour in promotion of her memoir and looked elegant in her tailored suit.
The light pink designer suit is a custom version of the Stine Goya trouser and blazer set created for Net-a-Porter. While embellished “bursts of crystals” gave it a distinctive look, she further accessorized with metallic gold heels and matching jewelry.
Talk show host Rachael Ray served as moderator for the first evening of her six stop European leg of the book tour. Ticket prices started at $29.95 while front floor seats went for $926.
Since the release of her memoir in November 2018, it sold over 10 million copies worldwide. Initially, the tour got set to last for 10 days, but when it became a roaring success it got extended with an additional 21 days.
Her nationwide tour included interviews with celebrities like Sarah Jessica Parker, Oprah Winfrey, and Reese Witherspoon.
The former first lady is set to take the stage at London’s O2 Arena on April 14, while also scheduled to speak in Paris and Stockholm. Michelle will return to the states thereafter and finish off her tour in Nashville on May 12, which will be moderated by the late-night TV host Stephen Colbert.
In December during a conversation with Sarah Jessica Parker as part of her tour at Brooklyn Barclays Center, Michelle showcased her individual style with great flamboyance.
She wore a striking yellow silk Balenciaga spring dress with a slit and a knotted waist, but it was her boots that caught the attention.
The thigh-high sparkly multicolored boots by the same designer made quite a statement and as Michelle pointed out she is free to wear what she pleases since she and Barack left the White House.
“Now, I’m free to do whatever,” she told Jessica. “They were just really cute and I was like, ‘Those some nice boots!’”
With tickets to her events generally sold out ahead of time, Michelle’s popularity as a person and with record sales for any memoir published to date, the book’s success might not stop there.
Thomas Rabe as part of Penguin Random Houses’ board of directors recently suggested that Michelle’s book may become the most popular memoir ever published by anyone.
