State of the Union

In the audience of President Obama's State of the Union address this evening, Mrs. O wears a Jason Wu custom red organza tweed flounce dress from the designer's Pre-Fall 2013 collection. An Alexis Bittar lucite flower pin in warm grey and gold at the shoulder accessorizes the look.

It seems Mrs. Obama is in a Jason Wu kind of mood to start 2013. The back to back to dresses, for the inaugural ball and now the State of the Union, certainly furthers the affiliation between Mrs. Obama and the young designer.

I'm reminded of this article from a few weeks back:

"Michelle Obama's Public Endorsement of Jason Wu" [New York Times]

Update (2/13): In this Official White House Photo by Pete Souza, Mrs. O can be seen wearing a coordinating red coat.


Happy Birthday Mrs. O

Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama turns 49 today! Happy Birthday Mrs. O! The first lady is reported to be celebrating with friends and family at Cafe Milano in Georgetown tonight. Also in the birthday mix: gorgeous new bangs (see above, where Mrs. O is pictured with inaugural citizen co-chair David Hall) and a new Twitter handle (see here).

Update: In the photo above, Mrs. O wears a knit dress by Zac Posen, confirmed by the designer here. Alexis Bittar stackable bangles complete the look.


Hanukkah at the White House

The president and first lady hosted a Hanukkah reception in the Grand Foyer of the White House on Thursday evening. The Obamas were joined by Rabbi Larry Bazer to light the 90-year-old menorah, which hails from a temple in Long Island, New York that was heavily flooded during Hurricane Sandy. For the occasion, Mrs. O wore a Jason Wu dress, debuted last year for a holiday event, here. An Alexis Bittar Teatro Modern pin at the collar completed the look. 


Mrs. O in Ann Taylor

Amidst the DNC festivities last evening, the first lady was interviewed by several of the major news networks. For the appearances, Mrs. O wore an Ann Taylor wool dress in a vibrant blue adorned with an Alexis Bittar elongated marquis pin. A similar version of the dress, in black, is available on AnnTaylor.com, here. Lovely!

A Grand Finale

The first lady is in the audience for the final night of the Democratic National Convention, with the president due to speak later this evening. For the occasion, Mrs. O is wearing a full-skirt, bateau neckline dress in a perfect-for-fall eggplant hue print. An Alexis Bittar lucite dogwood pin at the neckline completes the look. 

Update: Mrs. O wears a dress by designer Laura Smalls. The first lady wore a dress by Smalls earlier in the week, seen here. What a wonderful moment for the rising designer! Smalls says, "I could not believe my eyes that Michelle Obama wore our dress to this historic event. Words cannot describe how my team and I feel."
