First Lady Michelle Obama received raves about her choice in clothing at last night’s State of the Union Speech. But her suit was familiar to fans of TV show The Good Wife.
Dressed in a conservative Michael Kors tweed skirt suit, Michelle Obama was dubbed ‘flawless’, ‘stunning’ and a ‘picture of perfection’ during her president husband’s annual State of the Union address on Tuesday night.
But amid the storm of compliments, what many viewers – and perhaps, the First Lady herself – did not realize is that her designer attire had been worn on-screen before – by the wife of a disgraced politician in the hit TV series The Good Wife.
The suit was worn by Alicia Florrick on the show The Good Wife, played by Julianna Margulies, married to unfaithful and scandal plagued governor of Illinois, played by Chris Noth.
At a price of $797 for the jacket alone (reduced from $1,595 at Neiman Marcus), the skirt suit was first seen on actress Julianna Margulies in the role of Alicia Florrick, the wife of former state attorney Peter Florrick, who was jailed following a notorious political corruption and sex scandal.
Some fans noticed: “fans of the CBS show did. Twitter user Elaine Teng wrote: ‘Michelle Obama is channeling her inner Alicia Florrick tonight’, while another user tweeted: ‘Michelle Obama is bringing some fierce Alicia Florrick.'”
