Michelle Obama’s Thigh-High Glitter Boots Are Glowing

This former FLOTUS has some serious footwear game.

Michelle Obama made an appearance at Barclays Center on Wednesday night for the final stop of her book tour, where she was interviewed by Sarah Jessica Parker in a high-end outfit worthy of Carrie Bradshaw herself.

The “Becoming” author, 54, went all out with her designer duds, wearing a vibrant yellow silk wrap dress from Balenciaga’s spring 2019 collection paired with equally eye-catching shoes — the brand’s $3,900 gold sequined thigh-high boots. She also accessorized with $550 Jennifer Fisher gold ‘Baby Jamma’ hoops.

During the event, the former First Lady explained that during her time in the White House, “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.”

And if Obama’s past wardrobe choices are any indication, these disco-ready boots will be totally sold out in no time flat.

“Like a lot of people, I connect many of my memories with the songs and melodies I was listening to at the time,” Obama said in statement shared with Billboard. “From the jazz and Stevie Wonder of my childhood, to Prince and Earth, Wind & Fire as I came into my own as an adult, to Beyoncé, Janelle Monáe, and so many others who provided the stirring backbeats of my time in the White House — music has always been a defining part of who I’ve become.

Obama went on to say that she was “thankful to Questlove for curating these playlists and infusing them with his signature style.” 

“Life’s a little better when we live it to Questlove’s beat,” she said.

The whole thing is called The Michelle Obama Musiaqualogy and it’s playing at Obama’s book tour events all over the country. If you can’t make it out to see Obama speak,Musiaqualogy is available on Spotify.  The playlist comes in three volumes, split by era. Volume One runs from 1964-1979. Volume Two covers 1980-1997. Volume Three spans 1997-2018. The first two playlists are meant to be played in order. True to its time period, the 1997-2018 playlist is meant to be played on shuffle.
