Michelle Obama In Cushnie et Ochs – 2017 ESPYS

Michelle Obama canny knack of sending shivers down my spine continued at the 2017 ESPYS on Wednesday (July 12).

Naturally I would’ve loved this sleek look more had she opted for this Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2017 dress with the embellishments, yet I still have a fond affiliation with this minimally cut, clean and contemporary design.

Hearts on Fire diamond stackable rings, Jennifer Fisher earrings and patent pumps round out a look worthy of a modern first lady.

The Obamas hosted a state dinner at the White House in Washington, DC on Friday (September 25) for Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan.

Giving a nod to her guests, Michelle Obama made a stunning entrance onto the red carpet wearing a custom black mermaid gown featuring a rather sexy v neckline and tulle sleeve accents by Chinese-American designer Vera Wang.

Evening without my new found appreciation for all things black, this took my breath-away.

From the being perfectly tailored to contour the body, the enchanting design and the longer tousled waves, I love that Michelle is serving up old Hollywood glamour here.

Are you equally blown away?

Michelle Obama In Michael Kors – Fourth of July at the White House

Michelle Obama In Michael Kors - Fourth of July at the White House

President Barack Obama, accompanied by First Lady Michelle Obama, hosted an Independence Day event for military personnel and White House staff on the South Lawn of the White House on Saturday (July 4) in Washington, DC.

Michelle wore a Michael Kors Spring 2015 halter dress rendered in eye-catching pink gingham check with metallic kitten heels.

I love how the flattering fit-and-flare silhouette offers a casual, laid-back look which was perfect for the event while still maintaining plenty of First Lady finesse.

Even if you’ve come to associate this classic print with Dorothy from ‘The Wizard Of Oz’, gingham has been quite a hit with celebrities lately. For me the print will always bring to mind summer picnics.

You may remember that Freida Pinto wore this same dress in green recently.

Michelle Obama In Mary Katrantzou & Christopher Kane – ‘Let Girls Learn Initiative’ & Downing Street Visit

Michelle Obama In Mary Katrantzou & Christopher Kane - 'Let Girls Learn Initiative' & Downing Street Visit

Michelle Obama made two stops on Tuesday (June 16) in London, England, first attending a meeting for the ‘Let Girls Learn Initiative’ at the Mulberry School for Girls before heading to 10 Downing Street for a visit.

‘Let Girls Learn Initiative’: The First Lady brought a bold splash to the meeting in her custom Mary Katrantzou Pre-Fall 2015 printed frock. Plain black pumps ensured all focus was on the dress, with a bouquet of flowers coincidentally bringing a lovely final touch to her look.

Downing Street Visit: Changing into a Christopher Kane custom-embroidered floral sticker dress, inspired by the Pre-Fall 2015 Collection, she maintained her colourful outlook that was unfortunately not similarly reflected in her black Jimmy Choo ‘Mei’ pumps.

Of the two looks, I preferred her first, as the adorable Christopher Kane frock echoed her London arrival look in that it landed a bit too far on the twee side for me.

Michelle Obama arrived at Stanstead airport for a visit to London, England on Monday (June 15) with her daughters, Malia and Sasha, and her mother, Mrs. Marian Robinson, to continue a global tour promoting her Let Girls Learn Initiative.

She indulged her love of bright hues in a Preen buttercup-yellow frock with blue lace overlay paired with nondescript Jimmy Choo ‘Match’ black pumps.

While the colours were a fresh delight, the look could slightly fall into the twee territory for the First Lady.

I could have easily seen Malia wearing this dress on a separate occasion. Here, her sunflower-printed alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet frock was an adorable choice, accented with cornflower-blue flats that matched her mother’s ensemble.
