Wearing $100,000 gown for $1 million: Tech company sells $1.4 million dress to former Obama aide
IT WAS A good thing the bride wore a $1,000 dress to the wedding of former Obama administration aide Michelle Obama, but she didn’t have to spend it all.
The dress, which was made by the tech company T-Mobile, sold for $100 million on Friday in a limited edition of 50,000 dresses, according to an online auction listing.
Michelle Obama’s husband, former President Barack Obama, gave the dress to his niece, who also wears it to his inauguration.
T-Mobile declined to comment.
The $1-million dress, sold at an auction at Sotheby’s in New York on Friday, was part of a larger collection from T-Mobiles global catalog.
