First Lady Michelle Obama wore a Fenton necklace by designer Dana Lorenz to the taping of America Celebrates 4th of July, which is set to air on ABC tomorrow night. The bow bib necklace, from Fenton's spring 2009 collection, is made of bras, gunmetal biker chains, silk, and Swarovski crystals. Michelle Obama acquired her Fenton original through Chicago store Ikram; designer Dana Lorenz eventually created a similar style, which retails for $295, at J. Crew.
