Michelle Obama In Marchesa – 36th Kennedy Center Honors Gala

Michelle Obama In Marchesa - The 36th Kennedy Center Honors Gala

Michelle Obama was the belle of the ball at the 36th Kennedy Center Honors Gala held at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. on Sunday evening.

The First Lady never fails at leaving me in awe.

On this occasion she looked radiant wearing an emerald off the shoulder Marchesa silk chiffon Grecian gown which she styled with a beautiful silver necklace and drop earrings.

I’m loving the big curls which gave her hair plenty of volume.

Effortless, elegant and regal as always.

Who Wore Carolina Herrera Better…Michelle Obama or Crystal Reed?

Who Wore Carolina Herrera Better Michelle Obama or Crystal Reed

Michelle Obama wore a Carolina Herrera navy-and-silver wave-pattern dress featuring bow accents and a square neckline from the Pre-Fall 2013 collection for the dinner hosted by the German Chancellor Angela Merkel back in June.

She styled the look with kitten heels – naturally – and a pair of drop earrings which perfectly complemented the dress.

Crystal Reed – who has had several memorable Carolina Herrera moments – wore the same dress to the BAFTA LA TV Tea Party last month.

She kept her styling just as simple, opting for stud earrings.

You may remember that I thought this dress was a tad too twee for the First Lady. I much prefer this dress on the ‘Teen Wolf’ actress as it suits her sweet girlie-girl style.

Michelle Obama In Tory Burch & Eva Longoria In Camilla and Marc – Drink Up Initiative

Michelle Obama In Tory Burch & Eva Longoria In Camilla and Marc - Drink Up Initiative

The First Lady, Michelle Obama, was joined by actress Eva Longoria on a visit to Watertown High School in Watertown, Wisconsin as part of the Drink Up initiative to encourage people to drink more water last week.

For the event, Mrs O wore a blue tie-dye Tory Burch ‘Jasmyn’ midi shirtdress with a pleated skirt and retro silhouette.

This dress has more to it than meets the eye as the tie-dye fabric was developed in collaboration with women tie-dyers of the Republic of Guinea to benefit the ‘There is no Limit Foundation’.

Eva was equally colourful, wearing a Camilla and Marc ‘Amphora’ orange dress from the Australian brand’s Fall 2013 collection which features cap sleeves and a wrap skirt notched at the hem.

She styled the look with subtle gold jewels and a half-up, half-down ‘do.

Michelle Obama In Duro Olowu – ‘The Powerbroker: Whitney Young’s Fight for Civil Rights’ Screening

Michelle Obama In Duro Olowu - 'The Powerbroker Whitney Young's Fight for Civil Rights' Screening

On Tuesday Michelle Obama spoke prior to a screening of ‘The Powerbroker: Whitney Young’s Fight for Civil Rights’ at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building in Washington, DC as part of the celebrations commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

As I have come to expect, Michelle used colour to celebrate this occasion, and you can’t get more colour and print on one dress than a Duro Olowu dress.

The London-based designer known for his festive, mixed-print frocks created this stunning silk-chiffon piece with a dipped hem for a flattering silhouette which has become his signature. You may remember that Keira Knightley wore a similar look on Jimmy Fallon last year.

Mrs O paired her dress with two-tone open-toe heels.

Michelle Obama In Tracy Reese – ‘Let Freedom Ring’ Ceremony

Michelle Obama In Tracy Reese - 'Let Freedom Ring' Ceremony

Michelle Obama put her fashionable foot forward while attending the ‘Let Freedom Ring’ ceremony for the 50th anniversary celebration of Martin Luther King’s ‘March on Washington’ earlier today in Washington D.C.

As always, she lifted my heart and sent me to fashion heaven, wearing a Tracy Reese Fall 2013 dress.

I love that not only did she make a stylish style statement wearing a black-and-red floral-motif frock with a figure-flattering fit-and-flare silhouette, but also that she wore an African-American designer to commemorate this momentous occasion.

Obsessed with this look. Needless to say.

Michelle Obama In Prabal Gurung – 2013 Arthur Ashe Kids Day

Michelle Obama In Prabal Gurung - 2013 Arthur Ashe Kids Day

Michelle Obama attended the 2013 Arthur Ashe Kids Day held at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on Saturday in Queens, New York ahead of the US Open which starts on Monday.

The First Lady used the event to promote active lifestyles and eating healthy meals for kids, as part of a national campaign she’s leading.

As we are having such bad weather this side of the pond, Michelle’s summery look lifts my mood.

She turned to one of her favourite designers Prabal Gurung; selecting a yellow, navy, light-grey and white tropical print sleeveless peplum top from the designers Resort 2013 collection.

Wide-leg pants, comfortable silver flats and hooped earrings completed her look.

Michelle Obama In Carolina Herrera – Charlottenburg Palace Berlin Dinner

Michelle Obama In Carolina Herrera - Charlottenburg Palace Dinner

First Lady Michelle Obama, President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel attended the dinner given in honour of the President at the Orangerie of Schloss Charlottenburg palace in Berlin, Germany this evening.

Obama is visiting Berlin for the first time during his presidency and his speech at the Brandenburg Gate is set to be the highlight. Obama will be speaking close to the 50th anniversary of the historic speech by then U.S. President John F. Kennedy in Berlin in 1963, during which he proclaimed the famous sentence: ‘Ich bin ein Berliner.’

Michelle wore a Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2013 dress for the occasion.

The sleeveless wave pattern jacquard party dress featuring grosgrain bow accented straps, a high squared neck, a drop waist; and pleating at the skirt was styled with black kitten heels.

I have loved a lot of Michelle red carpet choices; however, I’m on the fence with this one.

It’s the bows which given me a feeling that this dress may have been better suited to the likes of Camilla Belle, Emmy Rossum or Kiernan Shipka.

She would’ve looked better in the sheath version of this dress – sans bows.

Michelle Obama In Burberry Prorsum – Aldergrove International Airport

Michelle Obama In Burberry - Belfast International Airport

The Obamas flew into Northern Ireland earlier today on Barack Obama’s first official visit to the country ahead of the G8 summit.

Clearly getting a heads up on our sunless summer, Michelle Obama disembarked Air Force One wearing a Burberry Prorsum Spring 2013 trench coat.

The classic trench with heritage detailing shielded her against the elements in style; however, I’m not sure about corset detail around the waist – the mahogany belt which matched her straight-leg pants would have sufficed.

Glad to still see her rocking her bangs, which could’ve kick-started a celebrity trend.
