Michelle Obama chooses an American designer for the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s

Michelle Obama joined President Barack Obama on Wednesday to honor the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s "I Have a Dream" speech, and as usual, she was dressed to the nines!

The First Lady posed in front of the Lincoln Memorial for the Let Freedom Ring Commemoration wearing a beautiful black dress covered in large scarlet-colored flowers by American designer Tracy Reese.

Upon seeing FLOTUS wearing her design at the monumental anniversary, Tracy was flattered:

Tracy Reese’s MObama Dresses Are In Anthropologie Stores!

Wow! That was fast!

Tracy Reese got a whole lot of interest in her dress that Michelle Obama wore to the Democratic National Convention, and now it’s available to the masses!

You're probably asking yourself why Reese's Versailles Matelasse dress for Anthropologie's Made in Kind collection looks nothing like FLOTUS'.

Let Tracy explain:

"This is actually the same dress Mrs. Obama wore to the Democratic National Convention, in a new different version. She wore the sleeveless version in a different fabric. I wanted to make it as rich as possible, so we printed it on this wonderful silk and linen jacquard so it just gives some texture to it, and topped it off with something abstract printed on lace.”

The MObama-inspired frock has a price tag of $298 and is available at Anthropologie today!

Which dress do U prefer???

If you were bummed to find out the Tracy Reese dress Michelle Obama wore to the DNC was a custom creation, turn that frown upside down!

The designer is planning to make the silk jacquard frock en masse!

Reese said:

"It was something that we are planning for later so we are trying to rush it through the cycle so more people can get their hands on it sooner."

Yay! And how much will it cost you to look like MObama? Under $500!

It’s not exactly pocket change, but at that price you could get 12 dresses, or one pair of Kanye West’s shoes.

We know you’ll do the right thing. Ha!

Michelle Obama is definitely one fashionable First Lady.

FLOTUS attended the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night to support hubby, Barack Obama, and she looked sensational!

For her moving speech, MObama showed off her famous guns in a sleeveless Tracy Reese print dress paired with pink J. Crew pumps.

Sigh. Could she be anymore perfect?

Anna Kendrick and Dianna Agron attended Coach's summer party held at the Highline in NYC Tuesday night.

Dianna wore a stunning above-the-knee Tracy Reese for Anthropologie dress and Miu Miu glitter pumps while Anna opted for a navy skirt, white blouse, and teal handbag.

We're definitely loving Dianna's outfit, but Anna could use a little pep. She looks like a school librarian who forgot she was attending a chic summer party.

Whose look do U prefer??

First Lady Michelle Obama strikes a pose on the cover of Ebony's May issue in what is quickly becoming THE color of the month: BLUE!

In the special Mother's Day issue, FLOTUS opens up about parenting, her mom and of course hubby Barack Obama.

Here are some HIGHlights from MObama's interview:

On raising Sasha and Malia:

“Barack and I feel that our greatest responsibility is to raise two productive, respectful, kind empathetic young women.”

On counteracting negative depictions of women in pop culture for the girls:

"My husband talks to our girls about how he expects men in their lives to treat them, and he offers examples by how he treats me and how he treats them."

On the benefits of her mother Marian Robinson living at the White House:

"Anytime I need to go and plop on her couch and just talk, she’s always there."

Aww! Mrs. O sounds so down to earth, especially for someone who wears jeggings. Ha!
