First Lady Mrs. O and daughter Sasha met with King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia and Princess Letizia of Spain at the Marivent Palace in Palma de Mallorca, Spain earlier today. More to follow on this amazing mother-daughter international fashion moment!

Update: As suggested by several in the comments section, Sasha Obama indeed wears a darling crewcuts ensemble, including the Girls' tulle skirt, Girls' silk swing tank and Girls' neon flower pin. Love!

Mrs. O's skirt is confirmed as Moschino.


Mrs. Mentor

Today Mrs. O launched a new White House mentoring program, hosting the kick-off for the initiative in the State Dining room. The first lady and her staff were joined by 13 area high school students, selected to participate in the program. Additional photos here.

Robin Givhan of the Washington Post described the event, here:

Obama said she became interested in the power of mentoring as a corporate lawyer in Chicago. Her office, she said, was on the 47th floor of a downtown building and her windows faced south towards her old neighborhood. Kids who were just as smart and capable as she was missed out on opportunities and successes "by a hair," she said.

And then she got a bit verklempt. "We've got the most powerful seat in the land to be a bridge-builder," she told the girls, her eyes tearing and voice cracking. "And I'm so excited and touched and moved to have you all here.... I can get emotional."

For the event, Mrs. O wore the same printed cardigan first seen a few weeks ago for the Os church outing.

Update: Reader Julie has pointed us to this crewcuts cardigan, a mini version of Mrs. O's! For those curious about Mrs. O's cut-out leather belt, this is not the first time we've seen it. Mrs. O wore the belt with a Maria Pinto ensemble, campaigning in Puerto Rico in 2008, seen here. Mica4Life also reminds us (via Twitter) that Mrs. O wore the belt the week before last for Breast Cancer Awareness month, here.
