The first lady made a Democratic fundraising swing through New York City on Monday, stopping by a performance at Broadway's St. James Theater, currently the home of Green Day's "American Idiot." Ticket holders paid between $100 and $2,500 per seat to watch musical performances by Broadway singers and Patti LaBelle and to hear Michelle Obama and Jill Biden speak. She had previously attended a more pricey event at Donna Karan's home.

Sarah Jessica Parker MC'd the event, and Patti LaBelle got the first standing ovation of the evening. Then, after a brief pause, Jill Biden and Michelle Obama spoke about the importance of the upcoming elections.

In honor of the later event's hostess, the first lady wore a dark halter dress by Donna Karan, according to Mrs. O, a chunky statement necklace by Erickson Beamon and a cuff bracelet. She spoke before the new Democratic logo. Dr. Biden wore a form-fitting purple sheath.
