Michelle Obama is once again setting the style world abuzz -- wearing a thrift-store dress to the "Christmas in Washington" concert.
The "couture" black-lace overlay frock, featuring a high, square neckline and a full skirt was plucked from New York Vintage in Chelsea.
The secondhand 1950s piece -- believed to be the first vintage dress worn by a first lady to a public event -- was made by American designer Norman Norell, who died in 1972 and was among the most influential designers of his time.
The dress is reputed to have cost $2,500.00Wallflower Vintage prides itself on featuring over 2000 vintage items at affordable prices, like these beautiful dresses:
