Michelle Obama 's boots are made for something other than
strolling. The former First Lady of the United States put forth a strong style expression in a couple of $4,000 boots as she was met by Sarah Jessica Parker on her book tour.
Michelle - wife of former US President Barack Obama - chatted to the Sex and the City star about her new book, Becoming, during an appearance at the Barclays Centre in Brooklyn.
And she was guaranteed to immediately grab the attention of the crowd thanks to her out-there fashion choices.
The author stepped out on stage in a striking yellow Balenciago dress and statement $4,000 sparking thigh-high boots from the same designer.
Michelle beamed a huge smile as she was greeted by SJP, who wore her own sparkles for the event in the form of a black sequined dress.
She became quite the style icon during her husband's eight years in the White House, with clothes selling out within hours of her being spotted wearing them.
And she said that she always knew that, as a woman, the clothes she was wearing would be discussed, no matter how weighty the topic she was talking about.
She said: "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, which is one of the reasons why we chose Jason Wu for my inaugural gown."
