Michelle Obama In J.Mendel – 2012 Pre-Olympics Reception

Michelle Obama also attended the pre-Olympics reception on Friday for Heads of State and Government, which was host by Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace prior to the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games.

For the royal occasion Michelle wore a J. Mendel Resort 2013 ensemble.

The look consisted of a white tailored jacket with overlapped side panels and silver embroidery, which she paired with an ivory pleated skirt.

Michelle will always command my attention over Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

FLOTUS isn’t afraid of colour, prints and in this case, she expertly contrasts an architectural top with a soft flowing skirt with great aplomb.

This looks is much more interesting, fashion-forward and stylish than yet another coat dress from the Duchess.

Metallic Manolo’s and stunning earrings completed her look.

Michelle Obama In Preen – 2012 Warrior Games Opening Ceremony

Michelle Obama attended the opening ceremony of the 2012 Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Monday.

The First Lady wore a Preen Spring 2012 dress.

Her colour-block chequered dress wasn’t a runway look, but you see several looks from the runway with the same print.

This isn’t the first time Michelle has worn Preen. It seems she’s attracted to their colour pieces and their bold-and-beautiful aesthetic.

She may be wearing kitten heels, which I have been fond of, but I love that they are in a light-blue colour which complements her sleeveless dress as do her pink stone earrings.

Perfection as always.

Michelle Obama In Naeem Khan – 2012 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Michelle Obama was seated next to Jimmy Kimmel who served as the host of the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, held at the Washington Hotel on Saturday evening.

Unfortunately we only get a glimpse of the top half of Michelle’s Naeem Khan Fall 2011 ballgown, but it’s still enough to make me swoon.

The belle of the ball looked sensational, radiant, stunning….I could go on and on.

Naeem Khan is becoming the First Lady’s go-to designer. She has a love for all things colourful, so no surprises that she selected this strapless paisley organza ballgown.

Carla Amorim ‘Aurora’ rose gold with cronaline and orange sapphires earrings, luscious locks and a nude lip colour completed her look.

Michelle Obama In Wes Gordon – 2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards

Michelle Obama made a surprise appearance at the 2012 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards in LA on Saturday afternoon to present singer Taylor Swift with the ‘Big Help’ award.

The First Lady wore a Wes Gordon Spring 2012 tunic with silver metallic Helmut Lang jeans.

Her Wes Gordon ¾ length-sleeved tunic with a silver embellished houndstooth print is slightly modified from the version presented on the model; the plunge isn’t so deep and Mrs O has opted to turn down the collar.

Simple black pumps completed her look.

I think she found the right balance of looking event appropriate, age appropriate and stylish.

Michelle Obama In Preen – Late Show With David Letterman

On Monday evening Michelle Obama made her first guest appearance on ‘Late Show with David Letterman.’

She looked lovely, as always, wearing a green, navy blue and green Preen Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

Her colour-block dress with a peplum and belted waist was accented with a sparkling Alexis Bittar Sapphire pin which followed the asymmetrical line on her dress.

On show, The First Lady explained how she creates a sense of values for her daughters while living in the White House, and her work on behalf of veterans.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On late night conversations with President Obama: “He is always upbeat, particularly about Congress.”

On an undercover shopping trip to Target: “I thought I was undercover . . . no one knew that was me. Because a woman actually walked up to me. I was in the detergent aisle. She said, I kid you not, she said, ‘Excuse me, I just have to ask you something . . . can you reach on that shelf and hand me the detergent?’ I kid you not. And the only thing she said, ‘Well you didn’t have to make it look so easy.’ That was my interaction. She had no idea who I was.”Read More…

Samantha Cameron In Alessandra Rich & Michelle Obama In Marchesa – White House State Dinner

Samantha Cameron and Michelle Obama were both impeccably dressed as they stood alongside their powerful husbands for the official photo last night at the White House state dinner in Washington, DC.

The Prime Minister’s wife wore a dress by London-based Italian designer Alessandra Rich.

Sam’s gorgeous blue lace ¾-length-sleeve belted dress from the Spring 2012 collection was paired with black heels from Next.

The First Lady opted for a gown by British-born, American-based designer Georgina Chapman, by donning Marchesa.

Michelle’s off-the-shoulder silk gazar draped column teal gown was teamed with a stunning Tom Binns statement necklace.

This portrait neckline with a statement necklace is a familiar look for Mrs O, as she sported a similar look back in May last year for the Royal dinner.

I think they both look outstanding. I love the modern electric-blue gown on Sam and Mrs O looks so effortless, classic and regal.

On this occasion I couldn’t pick a favourite.

Can you?
