Michelle Obama rarely gives notice before she steps out in a designer’s dress. So when up-and-comers catch the FLOTUS rocking one of their creations, it comes as a surprise, to say the least. Prabal Gurung was notified via text message when MObama wore one of his gowns to the White House Correspondents' Dinner. “More than anything else I wanted to jump and dance," he told the Daily Beast. Peter Soronen first learned that Michelle had worn his sparkly blue dress for a state dinner when a colleague started screaming, "She's wearing it! She's wearing it!" Even Thakoon Panichgul, whose designs Mrs. O has worn countless times, says “Every time it happens, there’s a joy in my heart.” Ours too, Thakoon, ours too. [Daily Beast]
