One Percent Perks: First Lady's $9K Oscar Dress
First Lady Michelle Obama certainly looked lovely during her surprise appearance to announce the Best Picture Oscar winner Sunday night.
That stunning silver dress must have cost a fortune, an odd choice for a woman whose husband is constantly seeking ways to punish the rich and once declared, "I do think at a certain point you've made enough money."
In fact, the dress in question had a price tag that would keep families currently looking for work in Age of Obama afloat for months.
The Washington Free Beacon reports the "silver sparkler was a custom design by Naeem Khan with an estimated price tag of $8,990."
