First Lady Michelle Obama Travels to China

First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Sasha and Malia are visiting China on a seven-day trip to expand Sino-American relations.

Thursday: Michelle arrived in Beijing, China wearing a Derek Lam Fall 2013 sleeveless suede patchwork mosaic dress featuring leather inserts at the front and a black wool-crepe jersey back panel, which she elegantly styled with over-the-knee boots.

Friday: For her meeting with the Chinese president, Michelle opted to wear red, a colour which symbolizes good fortune and joy to the locals, selecting a custom deco rose threadwork-embroidered 3/4-sleeve Naeem Khan dress styled with matching pumps. This is the 14th time Mrs O has selected a Naeem Khan look. I think it might be safe to say this is her favourite designer.

Saturday: On her visit to the Peking University, Mrs O wore a pretty Carolina Herrera multi-colour abstract-print dress from the designer’s Pre-Fall 2014 collection.

Saturday: Later that same day she changed into another printed confection, donning a Clover Canyon top with black high-waisted trousers for her tour of the Summer Palace prior to watching a performance at the Peking Opera House.

Which look is your favourite?

I find them all to be quite special and event appropriate. I continue to love her for her love of colour and prints. If I had to pick my favourite, it would be the Carolina Herrera.
