Designer Tracy Reese says she's rushing to make dresses.

Reese tells NBC's "Today" show that the hot pink silk jacquard dress with pale blue trim at the hem will cost under $500.

The designer says she was planning the dress for a later season. But now it's being rushed through the production cycle so, quote, "more people can get their hands on it sooner."

And she says the first lady's nail polish -- a purple-gray gel polish called "vogue" from Artistic Nail Design -- was a great accessory.

Obama's shoes -- J. Crew's $245 "Everly" suede pump in rhubarb -- are selling now online.
