The Wax MObama Is Here, And She's Wearing... Well, We're Not Quite Sure

April 8, 2009 by Bryn

Michelle Obama's wax figure was finally revealed yesterday and she's wearing a belted red dress inspired by the purple Maria Pinto she donned on the campaign trail. I suspect the color intended to be purple, but the guy in charge of mixing the dye screwed up big time and they had to come up with some last minute excuse for why the dress is now bright cherry red.

When they announced that the First Lady would be eternally bound in wax, I had hoped they would put her in an exact replica of one of the style icon's memorable outfits. Hmm, something's fishy here. 

Regardless, the frock itself is classy, and if you'd like to replicate the look, pair this D&G Tank Dress ($295) with a black woven belt ($89).
