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.
