Michelle Obama Dons 'Good Wife' Attire for SOTU


Michelle Obama is a good wife ... or she dresses like one at least.

The first lady attended her husband's 2015 State of the Union address sporting a Michael Kors tweed jacket, nearly identical to one worn by Julianna Margulies while she played the popular lawyer Alicia Florrick on a Season 5 episode of "The Good Wife" according to Spotted on TV.

The matching outfits were quickly pointed out by University of Wisconsin – Madison Media Studies doctoral student Taylor Cole Miller, who tweeted out the side-by-side shots of the two fashionable women Tuesday night.

While her husband was touting lower gas prices that save the typical American family about $750 at the pump each year, Michelle wore an ensemble that would gobble up those savings. The Michael Kors jacket comes with a $797 price tag at Neiman Marcus -- although it's sold out at the moment. The matching skirt runs another $597.
