Michelle Obama In Preen – 2012 Warrior Games Opening Ceremony

Michelle Obama attended the opening ceremony of the 2012 Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Monday.

The First Lady wore a Preen Spring 2012 dress.

Her colour-block chequered dress wasn’t a runway look, but you see several looks from the runway with the same print.

This isn’t the first time Michelle has worn Preen. It seems she’s attracted to their colour pieces and their bold-and-beautiful aesthetic.

She may be wearing kitten heels, which I have been fond of, but I love that they are in a light-blue colour which complements her sleeveless dress as do her pink stone earrings.

Perfection as always.

    Michelle is fun to watch because she pushes the envelope. When she nails a look, as she so often does, it’s great. But sometimes she bombs.

    I think this dress is both unflattering and rather tacky-looking. 🙁

    What an ugly dress!

    good choice of earrings ?

    This look is not BDOTW but nice. I love that she loves color.

    I want her to wear four inch heels. Kitten heels are always frumpy to me. It’s not like she’s 80 something like the Queen of England.

    I think that maybe this dress is innoppropriate for an official act. It looks nice but not for an opening ceremony that I suppose she was presiding. Something a bit more classic -basically with less colors involved- would have been a better choice.

    I like the fun fabric, but the style of this dress does not compliment Michelle’s figure. I think a skirt/top combo by this designer would have looked better on her. The shoes and earrings are great.

      I agree.

      Not a big fan of the dress either but she accessorised it well, and all the colours work beautifully against her skin tone. I like it.

      Agreed! I love the shoes though and I must admit I think both FC and I may have a bit if a girl crush 😉

    BDOTW please!

    Don’t like this at all, the print makes her look comical! Not too classy..

    While the First Lady is fit, we all have our figure issues. This look on her emphasizes all of those figure issues. This dress makes her bust appear even smaller and low slung, her waist even higher, and her hips and thighs even bigger. Not a win in my opinion.

    That dress is SOOOOO UGG–LY

  14. EmmaWoodhouse May 4, 2012 at 14:06 #

    I don’t like this look. The colorblocking is very Crayola-crayon like to me, and I don’t like the way the dress fits her around the waist. The shoes were a good choice but this isn’t working for me.

      Not Crayola… it looks like a Gerhard Richter painting! Lovely.

    Love that she’s having fun with fashion!
