Michelle Obama has made her way around the United States for the first leg of the book tour for her memoir Becoming. But despite sharing numerous moving anecdotes about growing up in Chicago and eventually landing in the role of first lady, people seem to be most inspired by the impeccable sense of style she displayed on her last stop in Brooklyn on Wednesday.
Taking the stage with fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker, Obama looked majestic in an all-gold look by Balenciaga, which featured the thigh-high boots of everyone’s dreams. The $3,900 pair of sequined metallic boots made the former first lady’s legs look never-ending beneath her silk dress, and have quickly made it onto the holiday wish lists of people across the country.

I did not know I needed to see Michelle Obama in knee high gold lamé boots, but apparently I did.

It isn’t the first time that Obama was styled in such an eye-popping manner for an appearance to talk about the book. In November, the former first lady rocked a silver off-the-shoulder top paired with pink pumps for a sit-down chat with Oprah.
By the looks of the reactions to the most recent gold ensemble, however, it’s safe to say that the Balenciaga shoes are officially an Obama fan favorite.
