For only earning $400,000 a year one can’t help but wonder how exactly did she afford all those A-list outfits? Also is it really proper for the first lady to openly flaunt being well above the middle class when it comes to income?

According to NY Daily News
– Michelle Obama’s fashionable clothing has become something of a given in her five-plus years as first lady. Yet her wardrobe still is the subject of endless public fascination and one long-simmering question: Who pays for those incredible outfits?
In recent weeks, Mrs. Obama has turned heads with a forest-green Naeem Khan dress at the opening of a new costume gallery at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, and she shimmered in a silver Marchesa gown at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner.
It takes money to pull that off, month after month. Those three dresses by themselves could add up to more than $15,000 retail, not to mention accessories such as shoes and jewelry.
