First lady Melania Trump stole the show at President Donald Trump’s first address to Congress Tuesday night, or maybe it’s safe to say that it was her dress that stole the spotlight.

Melania, who received a lot of attention for her elegant choice of fashion at her husband’s inauguration last month, became the talk of the town again for the “glittery embroidered jacket and skirt” she wore during the president’s Congress address on Tuesday, according to Time.

The Michael Kors dress, which stood out compared to outfits we’ve seen on past first ladies, has quite the price tag.

According to the brands website, the jacket goes for $4,995 while the skirt costs $4,595, and that’s before taxes.

Although the outfit is out of the price range for most Americans, the first lady didn’t veer off too much from the commander-in-chief’s “America First” message, considering she’s been mostly seen in outfits designed by American brands, and the same was the case Tuesday night, Time noted.

This comes after the former first lady, Michelle Obama, caught flack for stepping outside of her norm and wearing a glittery dress of her own during former President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address in 2013, according to the New York Daily News.

The black-and-maroon Jason Wu dress that Obama wore, at the time, drew comparisons to dresses that some said was better fit for a cocktail party.

The president’s oldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, who has made headlines for her fashion choices in the past, slipped from the limelight Tuesday compared to Mrs. Trump.

Ivanka went with a more subtle yet elegant look, as she wore a fuchsia off-the-shoulder dress designed by Roland Mouret, the New York Daily News noted.

The dress had a price tag of $3,000.

The Twitter community reacted to the first lady's “glitzy” dress at Mr. Trump’s State of the Union address.
