Ray of Sunshine

The First Lady hosted the second Kids' "State Dinner" in the East Room of the White House today, in partnership with Epicurious, the Department of Education, and the Department of Agriculture. The event recognized 54 winners of a national recipe challenge to promote healthy lunches. For the event, Mrs. O wore a Michael Kors sunshine metallic silk matelasse sheath dress, last seen in October 2009, here. Alexis Bittar bracelets from the designer's Elements collection completed the look.


A Familiar Gown with a New Twist

The President and First Lady attended an official dinner at the Presidential Palace in Dakar, Senegal on Thursday evening. For the event, Mrs. O wore a Naeem Khan paisley print organza ballgown, previously seen at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in 2012, here. Of note are the cap sleeves, added for the occasion. 

P.S. The photo above is the only from the dinner to be published at the time of posting. I hope there will be more to follow!
