That's the question many are asking after first lady Michelle Obama was seen wearing a pair of shoes made by haute French designer Lanvin during a trip to a food bank.
From New York Daily News:
"Michelle has stepped out in Lanvin before while getting down to business. A week ago, she shoveled dirt at a tree planting while wearing the line's chiffon tank.
"Dresses and strappy pumps cost upward of $1,500, while tops go for $400 to $1,000."
Michelle shares her taste for the costly kicks with the likes of Kanye West and Ellen DeGeneres.
