First lady Michelle Obama's marigold dress turned heads at the State of the Union speech

The dress by designer Narcisco Rodriguez quickly sold out online

CNN —  

Flawless. Powerful. Precise. Poised. The reviews of first lady Michelle Obama’s appearance at her husband’s State of the Union speech are in, and she may have stolen the show.

Never mind President Obama’s impassioned defense of his two terms in office; everyone was talking about her marigold midi dress by designer Narcisco Rodriguez.

Every time cameras panned to the first lady, her sleek, brightly colored dress stood out in a sea of dark suits.

The sleeveless dress sold out on Neiman Marcus’ website before the President had even finished his speech Tuesday night. Neiman Marcus priced the wool crepe dress at $2,095 but later reduced it to $628, E! Online reported.
