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 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 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 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 - 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.
