I love how Mrs Obama is quietly touting Reed Krakoff -- his designs are just so all-American with that very classic, simple, well-tailored, clean sense to it--

I love that there's always a subtle but intriguing background to the why and what she wears to events -- I can't wait to read a chronicling of, or the stories behind her clothing choices -- I hope someone tells it since I have a niggling feeling the First Lady won't be --

This looks like a stunningly simple dress, in lovely fall colors. Wish there were more views of it, though.

The outfit has a familiar look to it. I love the "modern" cut.

Not sure it is the same belt; the dress shows a bow in the back from the belt (?) on The Obama Diary.
