DOUBLING UP: In true recessionary fashion, Michelle Obama proves that clothing is anything but disposable. The First Lady donned the same floral Tracy Feith dress she was much photographed wearing in January as she was seen exiting the U.S. Mission to the United Nations on 44th Street in Manhattan on Tuesday.
Roughly 200 people gathered to catch a glimpse of Obama in the late afternoon, after rumors spread that she was going to be there. When she finally emerged, a wave of applause erupted from the impromptu group of onlookers. Earlier in the day, Obama gave a speech to employees of the U.S. Mission and on Tuesday night she was scheduled to speak at Time Magazine’s celebration of the 100 Most Influential People of the Year.
