Michelle Obama’s Easter outfit a Prabal Gurung repeat

Fashion-savvy FLOTUS rejects ‘one-wear-only’ policy, works floral print dress for a third time.

By Charyn Pfeuffer - MSN Living Editor Apr 1, 2013 4:54PM

For this year’s Easter festivities at St. John’s Episcopal Church, the first lady wore a white, floral-printed Prabal Gurung dress.

Michelle Obama wears Prabal Gurung dress on Easter.

The floral frock may look familiar; the FLOTUS wore the same ensemble when she hosted former President George W. Bush and former first lady Laura Bush at the White House -- and then again two years before that to the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, reports the Huffington Post.

It’s not the first time the FLOTUS has recycled her fashion favorites. Remember the purple Michael Kors silk dress she wore to her husband’s re-election? Michelle first wore the dress to a White House holiday party in 2009, then again for a military event in November of 2010, according to the Huffington Post.

Obamagirl1007, you comment is so TRUE!  Forgive the haters.  If she had a new dress for every public event, negative comments would have followed too.

 

It a done deal!!!  Love her or leave her alone!!!!!  She is the First Lady!!!!!

Does anyone really care?  Stop the negativity and be happy and glad for what we have.  Too much criticism, say nice things and you will feel nice.

I so appreciate that in America we have Freedom of Speech.  But some of the comments on here were very insensitive and unnecessary and I wish you could be stripped of this right. You disrespectful so and so's.   I would absolutely love to see those person who posted these foul comments.   I am certain you must be the most gorgeous, fashionable and intelligent people on this earth.   I want to see you so I can compliment you.  Get a frigggggging life you uneducated, miserable, lonely, struggling people.  If you want to go on vacation, save up your money and go or just accept the fact that you can't afford it like the rest of us.  Be grateful for what you have and stop envying others.  I bet those of you who wrote those terrible comments on here burst the church doors down every single Sunday.  You need to take a longer look at yourself deep in your eyes the next time you come across a mirror.  Obviously something in missing from within your soul.  Hopefully it doesn't break before you get the point.

Although they say we are coming out of the recession many families are still hurting in the country.  Glad to see her recycle the fashion.  I know she does not pay for any of it but it makes her appear to be "normal" instead of being better than all of us.

Glad to see her wearing something with sleeves.  So much classier for a First Lady.  I realize she has toned arms but a First Lady should always wear sleeves to look complete.

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days. So we thought we'd take this opportunity to let you know which rules no longer apply.
