*For her appearance at Essence Festival in New Orleans on Saturday night, Michelle Obama sported a glittery midnight blue sequin jumpsuit by Sergio Hudson — and now inquiring minds want to know where they can cop one too.
Hudson told Page Six that Obama’s stylist, Meredith Koop, “wanted something less formal but still with the disco edge of the [Hudson’s most recent] collection.”
The outlet writes “The designer went to work creating a custom design in an entirely different color for Obama, who paired the groovy look with oversize Djula white gold and diamond hoops ($5,882) and a new kinky and curly hairstyle with blond highlights.”
