Michelle Obama In Tom Ford – Buckingham Palace State Banquet

After a day of amazing looks by various designers, Michelle Obama wore Tom Ford tonight for the state banquet at Buckingham Palace.

The stunning layered ivory gown with criss crossed bodice is breath-taking.

Admittedly it’s a tad bridal for my personal tastes, but gorgeous nonetheless.

Mrs O wore hair up in a chic updo and accessorized with Cathy Waterman earrings, a silver clutch and evening gloves.

The two factors which slightly put me off this look are the gloves and the fact that she’s wearing the same colour dress as the Queen.

It’s almost like wearing white to a friend’s wedding.

The dapper President complemented his wife’s gown by wearing a white bow tie for the evening.

Can you imagine Tom Ford’s ego after this? ;)

Michelle Obama In Roksanda Ilincic & Samantha Cameron In Peter Pilotto – 10 Downing Street

Michelle Obama and Samantha Cameron met again today on the steps of 10 Downing Street in London, on Day 1 of the Obama’s state visit.

The two fashion savvy ladies both wore British based designers.

Mrs O opted to wear Roksanda Ilincic who she’s worn before.

On this occasion she wore a purple drape neck Roksanda Ilincic Pre-Fall 2011 dress with a Narciso Rodriguez blue coat. The look was accessorized with a black belt and black kitten heels.

Purple appears to be Mrs O’s signature colour.

She’s radiant in purple.

Samantha Cameron opted to wear Peter Pilotto.

The design duo are having a great day because Rose Byrne also wore a look from their Spring 2011 collection last night.

Samantha’s Peter Pilotto dress is the same shorten version Carey Mulligan wore to the Los Angeles Times “Young Hollywood” Roundtable last year.

Grey pumps (thank god they’re not black) completed her look.

Michelle Obama In Preen – Air Force One

Would you believe that the Michelle Obama is the first person to wear a look from the Preen Fall 2011 collection.

I absolutely loved this collection and I haven’t been happy about the lack of celebrity love, so this look has totally made my day.

The First Lady wore a Preen violet cropped jacket with a matching high-waist pencil skirt and with the runway printed blouse as she disembarked Air Force One with US President Barack Obama at Stansted Airport yesterday evening.

The original look was presented as a crop top and not a jacket, but I love Mrs O interpretation.

Teal suede pumps and orange Cathy Waterman earrings completed this BDOTW worthy look.

I love that she wore a British designer whilst touching down on British soil.

Michelle Obama In Barbara Tfank – Buckingham Palace State Visit

First Lady Michelle Obama and US President Barack Obama were greeted by the Queen as they arrive at Buckingham Palace today in London.

The Obama’s are in town for a two day State Visit thanks to a special invitation from the Queen.

During the trip they will attend a state banquet at Buckingham Palace and the President will address both houses of parliament at Westminster Hall.

Michelle opted for a cropped jacket instead of a cardigan today with her Barbara Tfank Resort 2011 dress.

I love the floral print dress, but I really don’t like the cropped jacket.

The pop of colour is very much her style, it’s the way it flares out at the back which I object to.

Newlyweds Prince William and Catherine Middleton were both at the Palace to greet the Obama’s.

Catherine is following the Queen’s lead by carrying a bag whilst being at home.

Being married to a Prince hasn’t changed her style, as she’s still championing the high street by wearing a Reiss Shola bandage dress.

Michelle Obama In Halston – 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Michelle Obama hosted the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, DC with her husband this weekend.

The First Lady opted to wear a beautiful Halston Fall 2008 gown.

Her coffee coloured gown has been modified slightly as the plunge on her dress isn’t so deep.

Michelle is known for her love of accessorizing with beautiful jewelry – Erickson Beamon and Alexis Bittar are her favourites.

On this occasion I think her Irit Design jewels are overkill. I would’ve preferred this look without them.

The gown is so simple and charming on its own plus the colour is so gorgeous on her, I wish she had let the gown speak for itself.

Michelle Obama Loves Alexis Bittar

Michelle Obama declared her undying love for Alexis Bittar during her Latin America tour last week.

As the Obama’s boarded Air Force one for their departure from Brazil on March 21, Michelle accessorize with a set of Alexis Bittar clear lucite bangles, which added the perfect accent to her colourful Marc by Marc Jacobs Simone stripe dress.

Michelle wore one of Alexis Bittar’s signature floral brooches when she arrived in Santiago on March 21, to meet Chile’s President Sebastian Pinera and First Lady Cecilia Morel at the La Moneda Government Palace.

The purple iris pin on her shoulder was the perfect accent to her cornflower blue dress.

On March 22, Michelle greeted her El Salvador’s counterpart Vanda Pignato during a visit to the Ciudad Mujer Center in San Salvador.

Her Jason Wu violet dress was accessorized with an Alexis Bittar floral pin.

The final picture sees Michelle wearing a Rachel Roy one shoulder dress whilst watching 50 Brazilian youth ambassadors present a martial arts-dance.

The elegant First Lady accessorized with a stack of Alexis Bittar gold and rose gold horn bangles.

Alexis Bittar is available to purchase from Saks.com
