Careers in Film

The First Lady hosted a Careers in Film Symposium at the White House on Friday for high school students interested in careers in the film industry. Mrs. O was joined by writer-director Ryan Cooger, film producer and executive Harvey Weinstein, Academy Award winning actress Whoopi Goldberg, actress Blake Lively and actress Naomie Harris. For the event, Mrs. O wore a smart black and whtie ensemble, pairing a collarless white shirt paired with pinstripe pants. (The pants may be from this Alexander McQueen pant suit.)


Diwali at the White House

The First Lady hosted a celebration of Diwali, a five day Hindu festival, at the White House on Tuesday. For the occasion, Mrs. O wore a dusty rose cashmere tank and embroidered skirt, both by Naeem Khan. The ensemble, from the designer's Spring 2009 collection, was previously seen here. A garland of jasmine flowers completed the look.


This Week in Mrs. O

On Thursday, the President and First Lady hosted Halloween celebrations at the White House, welcoming local trick-or-treaters and children of military families. For the occasion, Mrs. O went for a bold and festive look, pairing orange trousers with an orange and grey colorblock top. The President even catered his ensemble to the holiday, wearing a light orange button down shirt under a black sweater.

On Wednesday, Mrs. O was joined by local school children for the fall harvest of the White House kitchen garden. For her garden work, Mrs. O paired a light blue and navy top with legging jeans in "tarnish green" from AG Adriano Goldschmied.

Earlier on Wednesday, Mrs. O was joined by Sesame Street characters Elmo and Rosita for an event to promote healthy eating, held in the State Dining Room of the White House. For the event, Mrs. O wore a pink and burgundy colorblock dress by Narciso Rodriguez. It seems Mrs. O was all about colorblocking this week!


Sunday Best
