In the Mix

The First Lady spoke at a fundraiser for the Obama Victory Fund at the 18th and Vine Museum Complex in Kansas City, Missouri today. Arriving at Lambert St. Louis International Airport, Mrs. O met with Corporal Tiffany Garcia and her husband Omar Garcia, both part of The Mission Continues

On the style front, Mrs. O mixed blue tones, pairing a sleeveless dress with a cropped cardigan and low heels. An Alexis Bittar pin completed the look. Pool reports indicate someone in the crowd shouted “You’re beautiful!” as the First Lady took the stage.

For tonight's State of the Union address, the First Lady wears a stunning sapphire blue twill dress by designer Barbara Tfank. The dress hails from the designer's Resort 2012 collection. On the accessories front: an elongated marquis pin from Alexis Bittar.

The radiant blue dress is somewhat of a departure from Mrs. O's more subdued dresses of SOTU past: plum Isaac Mizrahi in 2010 and grey Rachel Roy in 2011. It also represents a shining moment for Barbara Tfank, an artisanal, Los Angeles-based designer, who created standout dresses for the First Lady in 2010 and 2011.

Update: Directly following the State of the Union address, the president made a phone call from the Capitol to inform John Buchanan that his daughter Jessica was rescued by U.S. Special Operations Forces in Somalia. The moment is captured in an official photo released by the White House.


Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The President and First Lady marked Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a community service project at the Browne Education Campus in Washington, D.C. Tonight the President and First Lady will attend the Let Freedom Ring concert in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. at the Kennedy Center.  

Update: The President and First Lady at the Kennedy Center last night:
