SUMMER RETREAD: Talbots has gotten another shout-out from Michelle Obama. The First Lady, who wore Talbots’ rose print silk dress on the cover of the May issue of Essence, sported the dress again for a long flight to Moscow Sunday. (She actually changed for her arrival into a peach Narciso Rodriguez dress). Talbots sold 3,000 of the rose print dress after Obama wore it on the Essence cover. The dress, which arrived in stores in April, was originally $169. There are still some dresses left at Talbots’ stores and on its Web site, but after the wave of spring markdowns, it’s now available for $89.99.

Meanwhile, J. Crew is planning a rush for a few of the items worn in Moscow the next day by Malia and Sasha Obama. Malia, 11, exited Air Force One decked in a J. Crew tan silk taffeta trench ($298) with black satin ballet flats ($98). Her sister, eight, wore a matching Crewcuts crushed twill trench ($169.99) and a pair of printed navy ballet flats ($108). But, as if one pair of ballet flats each just wasn’t enough, the girls also were spotted boarding the plane in Washington with Malia wearing her $98 satin flats while Sasha chose the crackle-metallic flats for $108.
