Michelle Obama Breaks the Internet with Glittery Balenciaga Boots

Michelle Obama wore a plethora of memorable outfits during her Becoming book tour, but really broke new ground on her final stop in Brooklyn. Former First Lady was talk of the town after she waltzed into the room rocking a pair of show-stopping yellow boots.

Balenciaga’s glittery gold over-the-knee pair comes with a hefty price tag of $3,900, and Obama paired it off with an equally stunning yellow dress by the same designer. This combination was so stunning that she managed to outshine Sarah Jessica Parker, who made a name for herself by playing one of the most fashionable characters in TV history.

Seeing Michelle Obama in these shimmering boots wasn’t simply about fashion. It was also about watching the former First Lady finally coming into her own and showing the world how liberated she feels after leaving the White House.

For the first time in forever, she can finally wear whatever she wants since she definitely couldn’t do that after her husband took office. Obama discussed this experience in her memoir and said she had to be very careful about her fashion choices, but came to conclusion she can use them for good.

“I did know that my clothes were making a statement, I knew that was the case. So we decided why don’t we use this platform to uplift some young new designers who normally wouldn’t get this kind of attention, because you can change their lives,” explained Michelle Obama.
