Michelle Obama Says Barack Wore the Same Tux for 8 Years!

Here’s something you probably never realized about former President Barack Obama – he wore the same tuxedo for all of his appearances during his eight years in office!

Michelle Obama opened up about her husband’s simple outfit choice while talking about the pressure for her to wear different things during every appearance.

“That’s the unfair thing,” Michelle said said at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference this week (via Us Weekly). “No matter what we do, he puts on that same tux.”

“Now, people take pictures of the shoes I wear, the bracelets, the necklace,” she said. “They didn’t comment [on] that for eight years, he wore that same tux, same shoes.”

“He was proud of it too,” Michelle added. “He was like, ‘Mm! I’m ready. I’m ready in 10 minutes. Mmm – how long did it take you?’”

Barack & Michelle Obama Purchase Washington D.C. Home

Barack and Michelle Obama have officially purchased their Washington D.C. rental home!

The former president and first lady were temporarily renting a home following their move from the White House earlier this year but have now made things official.

“Given that President and Mrs. Obama will be in Washington for at least another two and a half years, it made sense for them to buy a home rather than continuing to rent property,” spokesperson Kevin Lewis said in a statement to People.

Barack and Michelle will be staying the capitol until their 15-year-old daughter Sasha finishes high school at Sidwell Friends School in 2019.

Their new home is 8,200-square-feet and features eight bedrooms and nine and a half bathrooms, which reportedly cost $8.1 million.
