Michelle Obama dress by Tracy Reese, manicure sparkle at DNC

September 5, 2012 (CHARLOTTE, North Carolina)

The sleeveless brocade dress is not available in stores yet, but similar pieces by Reese -- who was born in Detroit and launched her collection about a decade ago -- run about $350-400.

Reese also dressed Mrs. Obama for her first Ebony Magazine cover in May. Mrs. Obama's pink pumps were from J. Crew.

People are also talking about Mrs. Obama's manicure- and trying to guess the purple-gray shade she wore on Twitter. Ann Romney, wife of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, wore a red Oscar de la Renta shirtdress to the Republican National Convention. That dress cost nearly $2,000.
