Best Dressed Of The Week – Michelle Obama In Ralph Lauren & Jessica Chastain In Roland Mouret

You loved Michelle Obama in Ralph Lauren above all others this week.

This proves that despite some of the harsh (unnecessary) criticisms about her weight, that she’s still very much a style icon in our eyes as she’s rarely beaten in these polls.

Whilst I fully agree with your choice, I opted for Jessica Chastain in Roland Mouret.

Since I billed her as one-to-watch back in December last year, I haven’t been that excited about her red carpet looks.

That all changed at “The Tree of Life” LA Premiere when she hit the red carpet glowing in Persian green Roland Mouret gown.

Which Was Your Favourite Michelle Obama Look Of The Week?

FLOTUS (The First Lady Of The United States) was impeccably well-dressed all week.

She really turns things up a notch during state visits.

This week she was in Ireland and the UK, showcasing both American and British designers.

My personal favourites from this week were her Preen, Ralph Lauren and Peter Som ensembles.

Michelle Obama In Peter Som – Stansted Airport

Everyday my girl (woman) crush on Michelle Obama grows.

She looked divinely elegant earlier today when she was spotted with her husband Barack Obama, as they arrived at Stansted Airport near London.

The couple were enroute to France for a G8 summit.

Michelle wore a Peter Som Fall 2010 pink ombré jacquard sheath dress and coat.

I love the brooch detail which holds her coat together.

Minus the white gloves, I think her accessories have been impeccable and perfectly complement each look during this trip.

The First Lady opted to match her patent pumps with her look, plus she added a navy tote with gold hardware.

A chic updo and drop earrings completed the look.

Michelle Obama In Ralph Lauren – Royal Dinner

President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama hosted a dinner for the Queen at Winfield House, the residence of the Ambassador of the United States of America, in Regent’s Park this evening dressed in their finest eveningwear after a long day of visits, politics, hand-shaking, motivational speaking and meetings.

Michelle looked stunning wearing a Ralph Lauren Fall 2011 elegant black gown with a portrait neckline.

The black satin wrap around bodice is met by a long black crepe skirt.

Not many people can out bling the Queen, but Mrs O does wearing a breath-taking necklace with a matching bracelet and an emerald ring.

I prefer this Ralph Lauren gown to the Tom Ford gown as it more dramatic and sophisticated.

Which do you prefer?

Michelle Obama In Alexander McQueen – University of Oxford

Michelle Obama delivered a motivational speech and answered student’s questions in Christ Church dining hall at the University of Oxford earlier today.

She opted for a chic black and white Alexander McQueen Resort 2011 look, which is her second piece from this collection.

Her crisp white Alexander McQueen Victorian bustle piquet shirt was paired with an Alexander McQueen ivory double buckle western belt and fitted black pants.

I would’ve preferred the look with a black belt.

Michelle Obama In Tracy Reese & Samantha Cameron In Jonathan Saunders – Downing Street Barbecue

Michelle Obama and Samantha Cameron reunited today in London to serve food to members of the military during a barbecue in the garden of 10 Downing Street.

Michelle opted to wear a Tracy Reese Pre-Fall 2011 dress which I don’t think was quite the right choice for a barbecue on a sunny day.

The crystal-embellished black chiffon dress has a white print detail on the bodice, cuffs and skirt.

Despite the lightweight fabric, the look still feels so heavy when you compare Michelle to Samantha.

Samantha’s Jonathan Saunders Spring 2011 short sleeve dress with a green waistband was much more summery and appropriate for the event.

Love that both women supported designers from their respective countries.
