First Lady Michelle Obama made a surprising fashion choice for her appearance on TNT's Christmas in Washington special.
Instead of picking an outfit from the usual arsenal of fashion newcomers, Mrs. O opted for a vintage Norman Norell gown.
The 1950s frock was pulled from the New York Vintage archives and may very well be the first time she's ever worn a vintage piece.
The store's co-owner Jon Schneck couldn't be happier, saying:
"[This is] truly an historic event, as this may be the first time a First Lady has worn a vintage dress. Other dresses from the archive have being scheduled for use by the First Lady later this year. We are truly honored that the First Lady has chosen a gown from New York Vintage as her first venture into vintage couture."
The dress is absolutely stunning. The silhouette, the fabric, everything.
Hopefully we'll see her in more vintage designs in 2011!
