While the president spoke about the economic frustrations of average Americans in his State of the Union address Tuesday night, his wife, Michelle Obama appeared at the event in a sapphire blue dress from designer Barbara Tfank’s 2012 Resort collection, estimated to cost over $2k.

The first lady’s press office, however is mum on dress, telling The Daily Caller that they will not offer comment “as of right now.”

Tfanks, a West Coast designer, recently described the dress as “a criss cross bodice cap-sleeved slim dress in silk twill,” to The Hollywood Reporter.

The first lady also wore a Tfanks in 2010 to meet Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace for a Medal of Honor ceremony.

The price is not listed on Tfanks collection, however People Magazine has pinned the cost at $2,400.
