Michelle Obama’s J.Crew outfits trigger shopping frenzyApril 5th, 2009 - 11:55 am ICT by ANI
New York, Apr 5 (ANI): US First Lady Michelle Obama’s fashion sense has continued to inspire most, and this time she has caused a shopping frenzy stateside after she was seen sporting J.Crew outfits in London.
When a photograph of Michelle wearing a cream-coloured “crystal constellation” cardigan priced at 298 dollars during a visit to Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre emerged, it was sold out by 10a.m. the same morning on J.Crew’s Web site, reports the New York Daily News.
Even the 158 dollars “dazzling dots” skirt she was wearing was practically sold out, now there is a 200-person waiting list for the cardigan.
It has been good business for the company, which has seen its stock price up nearly 64 percent in the past four months. (ANI)
