Michelle Obama In Marc Jacobs – White House Reception Room

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama pretend to sing with an a cappella group in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House during a holiday reception recently.

The First Lady looked radiant as always.

I’m sure you’re just as surprised as I am to see her wearing her first Marc Jacobs dress from the Fall 2010 collection.

She added customary kitten heels to her chocolate brown sheath dress which is decorated with paillettes down the front but it’s plain on the back.

Despite Marc Jacobs being one of ‘the’ American designers, I wouldn’t have thought Michelle wear his designs but she picked a lady-like piece that suits her sense of style.

Would she be so bold as to pick a look from the Spring 2011 collection?

    I really like this. She makes it very fun yet sophisticated. She has a wonderful body and she looks really great whenever she highlights it.

      This may sound crazy, but part of me would love to see her wear Herve Leger in a statement that not only skinny twenty-somethings can look beautiful with curves. But it would have to be a demure Herve Leger dress.

        I would love that!
        Maybe a black or creme scoop neck Herve Leger and paired with some Brian Atwood pumps and a black blazer! Or a bandage skirt with a pretty blouse…damn, if only i was her stylist….(:

    Good look for Mrs. O. She’s got her bling on, and every lady needs that. I am surprised as anyone about her wearing Marc, but I don’t think it’s a good. fit. Occasionally some pieces might work like this one, but he’s too…’wacky’ for her lady-like style.

    She looks fantastic. Great choice for the event.

    I don’t know why but I love the fact that she’s so tall.
    Anyway, she looks very nice. But I’m not sure her wearing Marc Jacobs should become a recurrent thing unless she finds lady-like pieces like this dress.

    She looks great in this dress. It’s very flattering and shows off her nice figure.

    Wow! unexpected but i really like it. In fact i like everything she wears. I would add Michelle Obama and princess Letizia of Spain to my list of perfectly dressed in every occasion.

    She looks great-as usual.

  10. Lee Ann December 21, 2010 at 21:53 #

    She looks fabulous.

    I mak no secret of my love of michelle obama. She is ever-chic. This is a perfectly chosen dress, it suits her beautifully and it is good to see that despite teh heavy embellishment on the dress, she has not lost ehr ability to accessorize, those earrings are incredible.

    Wow didn’t think she would go for something so sparkly. Love it!

    Perfect dress for the season. Christmas is the time of sparkle.
    The only thing that I don’t like about the dress is the fact that the sequins were not all over. It looks unfinished.
    But, the woman looks amazing.

    She looks fantastic as usual. Too bad her husband can’t govern as well she dresses. She looks lovely as always.

    mrs. o really is fashion’s top diplomat: not only did she choose a quintessential michelle obama dress — sleeveless, photographs well, body conscious — but she chose from one of the most classic marc jacobs collections we’ve seen in years.
