Michelle Obama is now officially the chicest First Lady ever: she showed up to TNT’s Christmas in Washington television taping last night wearing a gorgeous vintage Norman Norell dress. The black 1950s number, purchased at New York Vintage in Chelsea, is estimated to be $2,500. The owners of New York Vintage hinted that "other dresses from the archive have been scheduled for use by the First Lady later this year." [Racked NY]
