Michelle Obama may be the first lady now, but she's still got love for affordable fashion from J.Crew.

While across the pond in London for Thursday's G-20 summit, she wore J.Crew head to toe on Wednesday, including a pencil skirt, tank and cardigan ensemble from the store.

Total cost for her outfit? Under 500 bucks...$474 to be exact.

Granted, it's still fairly expensive for the average soccer mom, but for a first lady and celebrity with loads of pricey couture to choose from, it's dirt cheap.
