Michelle Obama Wears J.Crew To Visit 10 Dowing Street

Michelle Obama was decked out in J.Crew’s finest pieces, when she and her husband met Prime Minster Gordon Brown and his wife Sarah Brown, at 10 Downing Street for breakfast this morning.

Her champagne sweater J.Crew cardigan is embellished with sequins, glass beads and rhinestones costing only $298.

Her mint green J.Crew pencil skirt has a dotted jacquard print costing only $158.

As expected her look is very chic and sophisticated, I love the way the embellishments glimmer in the sunshine.

As much as kitten heels don’t do it for me, her snake print heels really compliment the look.

I can’t wait to see what she wears to meet the Queen.

Update The cardigan has already sold out.

    It would have been nice to see Sarah Brown in something a little more colourful, but I guess you’re right, there was no point in competing with Michelle! I love the way that the cardigan looks so casual on the model but Michelle makes it look so much more formal and sparkly!

    Sarah was never going to outshine Michelle, as all eyes were on her.

    Sarah did well to stick to a plain look. She would have only been assumed of trying to compete if she tried something new anyway.

    Okay, I like Michelle Obama, as I’ve said before, she knows how to dress for her body type and she is not afraid of taking risks.

    But I agree with anonymous, this is disastrous. Too much spark for a *breakfast*. Too many things going on at the same time. I love the pieces individually, but not together.

    I know I sound conservative here, but it’s an official visit and not an evening dinner with long time friends.That may be fashion forward and all, but that is not appropriated.

    Now I get the kitten heels. They are classic, they are comfortable and they can be really chic. Also she is a very tall woman and wearing high heels would make her tower over some of the people she is meeting, which she may want to avoid.

    Um…I am sorry, but when you are the First Lady of the United States of America and are meeting with major foreign leaders you need to step up your game! I think Michelle Obama looks like she is going to a PTA meeting, not one with the Prime Minister. How disappointing…

    That was quick, but I’m not surprised as it’s gorgeous.

    J-Crew needs to make a deal with
    I am sure their site will crash in a few hours!

    I love this look..its so real and it is her. I think it goes together beautifully and I love the proportions of the individual pieces. She has her own style and it works.

    I LOVE the Obamas, but this experiment is disastrous. WAY too much going on with patterned shoes, checked skirt, glittered/too short and small sweater AND pearls. The two previous outfits were much more appropriate.

    I love the cardigan, I will add that to my wish list.
