Michael Kors May See ‘Halo Effect’ From Michelle Obama’s Suit.

The luxury goods company is basking in some media buzz after Michelle Obama wore a gray skirt suit from the designer’s 2013 collection to the State of the Union address last night in Washington. I was thrilled to see how beautiful the First Lady looked,” Lawson told the Daily News on Wednesday, after seeing Michelle Obama descend on the Capitol in the gray tweed ensemble that Margulies wore on Season 5, episode 10. As of last night, the jacket was still available on the Neiman Marcus site for $797 (down from the original retail price of $1,595) — but the item quickly sold out as women tuned in to the SOTU. A few viewers began to realize it looked familiar — because it appeared to be the same exact suit once worn by Alicia Florrick (played by Julianna Margulies) on a past season of CBS’s legal drama The Good Wife.

It was for other distracting reasons that the selection made tongues wag — at least among those who spend their Sunday evenings watching CBS’s “The Good Wife.” The ensemble, a salt and pepper tweed skirt and matching jacket with an industrial-style zipper and a wide portrait collar, was from Kors’ fall 2013 ready-to-wear collection — albeit with a few alterations from the way it appeared on the runway: No black belt. Lawson had selected the power suit for Alicia Florrick, the character Margulies plays, because the “strong silhouette and unusual collar” exuded power and presence, he explained. “The First Lady is a real trendsetter and style icon because she has, as evidenced Tuesday night, a seemingly effortless elegance and strength to her look.” The First Lady’s office didn’t respond to a request for comment on if Obama is a fan of the CBS drama. You laugh, but at least three #menswear bloggers are on eBay right now trying to figure out how to get Scott Kelly’s NASA jacket ahead of New York Fashion Week. The shares got a boost today after analysts at Cowen & Co. upgraded the stock to the equivalent of a buy rating in part because data indicated sales of handbags remained strong through the holidays. That is, she’s still selecting garments from the realm of contemporary fashion, those clothes that are available to any woman with a decent bank account.

Beneath that robotic visage freshman Iowa senator (Fightin’) Joni Ernst employed while delivering the Republican response, (like three feet beneath) she demonstrated her fightin’ spirit in camo kitten heels. While apparel is only a small part of the retailer’s sales, the brand could see a “halo effect” from Michelle Obama’s outfit, said Anna Andreeva, a New York-based analyst at Oppenheimer & Co. “They’ve done well with apparel,” Andreeva said. And finally, President Obama may have faked everyone out on Twitter by flashing the tan suit again, but he saved up the real trolling for the main event. And slowly, the look of Alicia Florrick has evolved from tentative, apologetic political spouse to a strong and outspoken (grudging) politician in her own right.

In the past, she has chosen a dress, sometimes sleek and sleeveless, sometimes accompanied by a jaunty cardigan, sometimes with a puffy, girlish skirt. It has been a way of always looking polished and poised, while diminishing memories of her as the corporate lawyer on the campaign trail — a suited-up persona, both literally and figuratively, that unnerved no small number of people. Her tendency to wear dresses also paralleled the fashion industry’s push to get more women into them — a silhouette that many designers envisioned as the new emblem of power.
