Michelle Obama In Prabal Gurung – US African Leaders Summit

Michelle Obama In Prabal Gurung - US African Leaders Summit

Michelle Obama made a bright showing at a White House state dinner, hosted by President Obama for African leaders on Tuesday (August 5),

She once again pledged allegiance to her love of Prabal Gurung, wearing a look from the Nepalese designer’s Resort 2013 collection.

The radiant canary-yellow, silk chiffon frock with ruffle straps was shortened to tea length and featured a modified bodice from the lookbook, transforming the original gown into a more event-appropriate dress.

She emboldened the bold, nearly neon ensemble even more with the addition of an armful of bangles, statement earrings and the debut of a trendy, sleek topknot.

Her modest metallic pumps were the most standard piece of this look—not that anyone was paying attention to her shoes.

Did she maintain her first lady of fashion title here?

Michelle Obama In Tanya Taylor - Naturalization Ceremony

Michelle Obama attended a special naturalization ceremony held at the National Archives on Wednesday (June 18) in Washington DC, where she took to the podium to give a speech.

The First Lady wore a delightful rainbow scroll-print dress from Tanya Taylor’s Spring 2014 collection.

This is a huge coup for the young designer, who has built a strong celebrity following in such a short time that includes the likes of Zoey Deutch, Jessica Alba, Mandy Moore and Gillian Jacobs.

Her ultra-feminine frock was complemented with a silver belt and styled with Jimmy Choo grey kitten heels and white drop earrings, which allowed the dress to shine.

It’s summer in a dress.

Michelle Obama was the belle of the ball at the annual White House Correspondent’s Association Gala at the Washington Hilton hotel on Saturday (May 3) in Washington, D.C which was attended by journalists, politicians and celebrities.

Just like the 2012 and 2013 event, we have to make do with this cropped photo of the First Lady, but that doesn’t dull the impact of her stunning Marchesa Fall 2013 gown.

The grey tulle dropped-shoulder gown with silver floral embroidery, modified to be sleeveless, was styled with Cathy Waterman jewellery.

Nude lips and a honey-highlighted bouffant completed her simply gorgeous look.

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.

Michelle Obama In Carolina Herrera – White House State Dinner

Michelle Obama In Carolina Herrera - White House State Dinner

The White House State Dinner has become a date in the diary that I value as much as any major red carpet event, because it’s when the First Lady really gets to shine.

I mean, who can forget that jaw-dropping Alexander McQueen gown Michelle Obama wore back in 2011 or the Marchesa dress worn in 2012?

The First Lady didn’t disappoint at the State Dinner hosted in honor of French President Francois Hollande on Tuesday evening (February 11), wearing a dramatic Carolina Herrera ball gown with Sutra jewels.

Her gown featured a black beaded embroidery appliqué scallop-edged top over a liberty-blue silk faille corset with a wide black velvet belt detail and liberty blue silk faille inverted pleat long skirt and train. This is certainly one for the record books.

Oozing class, femininity and sleeves (some may be delighted to learn), this look hits all the right style notes and is certainly worthy of such a regal occasion.

Along with Cate Blanchett, Michelle gives me many goosebump– inducing moments of which this ranks quite highly.
