Good luck getting your hands on Michelle Obama's State of the Union dress.
The Internet went into a flurry Tuesday night when the First Lady was spotted in a marigold Narciso Rodriguez dress, while President Barack Obama was delivering his (presumably) last address to Congress.
But frenzied shoppers were quickly disappointed, when they learned that the designer frock was sold out on Neimanmarcus.com.
The dress, which was originally priced at $2,095, was marked down to $628 on Black Friday. It was part of the designer's fall 2015 collection, which was shown on the New York runway in February.
Ginger Reeder, vice president of communications for Neiman Marcus, said the company will not be reordering the dress since it was already marked down. Because it is no longer on the website, she was not able to check if it is available in any of its physical stores.
The dress was not exclusive to Neiman Marcus, Reeder said. As of late morning Wednesday, one was still in stock on Farfetch.com for the full price.
A spokesperson for Narciso Rodriguez did not immediately respond to request for comment.
This isn't the first time a female political figure's outfit has flown off the shelves, or raised the star of the designer behind it. Back in 2009, luxury designer Jason Wu catapulted to fame when Obama donned one of his creations, a one-shoulder white gown, to the inaugural ball.
And following Kate Middleton's engagement to Prince William back in 2010, a blue dress she wore by Issa London sold out instantaneously.
