Michelle Obama In Peter Som – Stansted Airport

Everyday my girl (woman) crush on Michelle Obama grows.

She looked divinely elegant earlier today when she was spotted with her husband Barack Obama, as they arrived at Stansted Airport near London.

The couple were enroute to France for a G8 summit.

Michelle wore a Peter Som Fall 2010 pink ombré jacquard sheath dress and coat.

I love the brooch detail which holds her coat together.

Minus the white gloves, I think her accessories have been impeccable and perfectly complement each look during this trip.

The First Lady opted to match her patent pumps with her look, plus she added a navy tote with gold hardware.

A chic updo and drop earrings completed the look.

      Dazzle – you are so right. She looks great. What a wonderful outfit that looks fab despite the hurried / windy appearance of the day. Luis will probably think it adds poundage, but I think it does just the opposite!

      • Dazzle May 26, 2011 at 16:34 #

        She looks fantastic. I love the addition of the brooch. Such a regal woman.

      Why is she called FLOTUS?
      She looks BEYOND chic here – I’d be proud to be an American too

          Her arm candy is the POTUS, of course. :)

        FLOTUS=First Lady of the United States :)

        • Manja May 26, 2011 at 18:39 #

          thx,i was wondering abt FLOTUS as well

        • Dazzle May 26, 2011 at 19:25 #

          No problem on explaining FLOTUS. I must admit I first ‘heard’ it from the fabulous Jim Shi!

  2. Rebecca May 26, 2011 at 16:03 #

    Tres chic! She looks very classy.

    I don’t like her taste for bags and coats, for me her bag doesn’t match the coat. Know I understand why she opted not to wear always a bag…

    • Luis May 26, 2011 at 16:08 #

      Don’t attack me, I do like the dress!!

    • Jen May 26, 2011 at 16:47 #

      I see what you mean about the bag, but I like that it doesn’t match. I like the contrasting colors. Then again, my apartment looks like a circus exploded with the different colors, so …

      • Luis May 26, 2011 at 17:06 #

        Now I’m curious about your apartment!!!

    • pam May 26, 2011 at 22:50 #

      I like the bag. I think it coordinates with the trim color of the dress.

  4. Lee Ann May 26, 2011 at 16:21 #

    I love this outfit , the colour, the coat, even the broach. Trouble is I don’t like it on her. it is too short and looks a bit small for her frame. I think she looks clunky not elegant.

    • Lee Ann May 26, 2011 at 16:21 #

      PS hate the colour of the shoes

      • maria May 26, 2011 at 17:12 #

        i agree with you on the shoes. I wish she would have chosen darker shoes to go with the dress.
        Otherwise i love this outfit. the colour is stunning and i like the ombre effect.

    • Gigi May 26, 2011 at 17:00 #

      I think she, like many a Hollywood Red Carpettier, forgets to pull her dress down after sitting. It looks a bit bunchy and I bet if she had pulled it down, it would be longer and less tight looking.

    • pam May 26, 2011 at 22:55 #

      I think she hunches a bit, and that results in the clunky look. Probably a habit developed because of her height. In other pictures the dress fits fine and the length is good.

  5. Tatiana May 26, 2011 at 16:22 #

    This a good look. The colors are divine on her. I wish she didn’t do matching coats though.

  6. Jen May 26, 2011 at 16:48 #

    By far my favorite look of hers this trip. I love it.

  8. Fernando May 26, 2011 at 17:05 #

    Wow, she really looks fantastic.

    FC, there is something i really want you to see, it is the new cover of teen vogue, i really think you will be shocked to see who it is “suppossed” to be in the cover.
    Well, i hope u take a loot at it.


    • Fashion Critic May 26, 2011 at 17:42 #

      ok I will try to find it

      • Fernando May 26, 2011 at 18:58 #


  9. Zoe May 26, 2011 at 17:24 #

    I loooove the color of her dress,She looks perfect.

  10. dee May 26, 2011 at 17:25 #

    Love the whole outift. Not too sure if the bag goes but despite that she looks fantastic.

  11. robbie May 26, 2011 at 17:41 #

    love the matching dress and coat. LOVE the bag!

  12. mikeijames May 26, 2011 at 17:56 #

    michelle obama SHINES in color. i don’t know whether to scream with delight or to cry with pride. she’s really making us americans — and our homegrown designers — look good.

    • Sharon May 26, 2011 at 18:47 #

      I totally agree. I’ve been around to see a lot of First Ladies, and not since the iconic Jackie have we had one with such a varied, interesting and often stunning wardrobe. Michelle is a wonderful representative of our country.

      • Courteney May 26, 2011 at 19:24 #

        Well Michelle and Jackie O were really the only young First Ladies who could actually get away with being fashionable and not have people say they dress too young.

  13. moja31 May 26, 2011 at 19:07 #

    She looks amazing. Wish she’d worn this to the palace instead.

    • Rebecca May 26, 2011 at 19:21 #

      I admit that thought occurred to me as well–and I really liked what she wore to the palace, unlike many other commenters. This is a very sophisticated look and would have been
      very appropriate

  14. Courteney May 26, 2011 at 19:23 #

    I would love to see Shoerazzi do a shoes she should have worn for this outfit.

  15. Emi May 26, 2011 at 21:05 #

    I really like her outfit, but I prefer the colors of the runway dress and I would have preferred her dress without the dark hem (I can’t explain it in english, I hope you’ll understand what I mean).

  16. Chiara May 27, 2011 at 00:53 #

    I usually don’t like ombre colors but this outfit I really like.

  17. Hadara May 27, 2011 at 03:40 #

    Hmm….adore the color. I think this is my fav from her, so far.

  18. jx May 27, 2011 at 08:00 #

    her bag looks like a Fendi Peekaboo.

  19. Chloe May 28, 2011 at 17:47 #

    One of the best looks she has ever worn. Thank you for featuring this FC. When I saw this I couldn’t wait to read what you thought about it.

  20. Lucía June 2, 2011 at 12:28 #

    I think the coat in the same color is a bit too much.

  21. miro June 7, 2011 at 06:22 #

    do any body knows the brand name of this navy tote bag ?
