Ann Romney wore an expensive dress to the presidential debate Tuesday, and US Weekly wants everyone to know it.

In a piece published Wednesday, Us Weekly ran the headline "Ann Romney Wears $1,690 Oscar de la Renta Dress to Presidential Debate." Fox News points out the magazine chose this headline despite the fact that First Lady Michelle Obama’s outfit cost double that price.

Obama’s dress cost more than Romney’s at $1,795—and the first lady topped the ensemble off with a jacket that cost $1,495.

Fox News writes:

The announcement might have fit well with President Obama's references during that debate to the Romney family's enormous wealth. The president joked at one point that he doesn't look at his own pension, because it's not as big as Romney's.
