Honoring Justice Sotomayor

The President and First Lady hosted a reception at the White House this afternoon honoring the newly sworn in Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

Mrs. O wore an ensemble we've seen once before, when the first lady toured the gardens at 10 Downing with Sarah Brown in mid-June, seen here. Mrs. O topped her ivory and black patterned dress with a turquoise cardigan, embellishing the look with turquoise accessories. The turquoise starburst brooch is the same Erickson Beamon piece first seen during the Democratic National Convention last August. A stack of turquoise and pearl beaded bracelets completed the look.

We don't yet know the designer of Mrs. O's dress, but hope to have an update soon! Update: Mrs. O wears a black dot twist front tank with eyelash trim, paired with a black embroidered dot micro-pleated skirt, both by Jason Wu.

A Perfect Pair

The president and first lady are hosting a reception for foreign ambassadors at the White House this evening, making a grand entrace in the photo above. Their sartorial symmetry, accomplished via bold color blocks of black, white and scarlet, delights the eye. More on Mrs. O's dress to follow.

Politico has the scoop on tonight's event:

"It was splashy affair, held under the chandelier glint of the Grand Foyer, replete with champagne and the music of the Marine String Ensemble. Musicians performed a handful of light jazz songs including Shadow of Your Smile and Come Back to Sorrento."

Update: Mrs. O wear a Jason Wu color block sheath with embroidered bodice, silk faille skirt, and red chiffon cummerbund.


Cool Blue

President Mr. O and First Lady Mrs. O attended the Evening Parade at the Washington Marine Barracks on Friday night in Washington, D.C. The parade was first held in 1957 and takes place every Friday evening from May through August. We love Mrs. O's cool combination of turquoise and lavender.

Update: Mrs. O wears a custom teal linen and silk double bow sheath dress by Jason Wu.


When in Rome (Updated)

As the President and First Lady arrived in Rome, Mrs. O dazzled in a yellow sheath dress, accessorized with an oversize green brooch at her shoulder. We love that Mrs. O has mixed two of her signatures - a classic sheath and a statement brooch - while introducing a fresh play on color.

Update #1: Mrs. O wears a Jason Wu canary yellow silk faille custom sheath dress. The pin is a rare 1960s vintage piece in paper mache, purchased at Ikram.

For the afternoon, Mrs. O changed ensembles to visit the Coloseeum with her daughters, wearing a white sundress with an Erickson Beamon turquoise brooch pinned at the neckline. The brooch was first seen in August 2008, as Mrs. O opened the Democratic National Convention.

Update #2: Mrs. O wears a white cotton silk dress by Narciso Rodriguez.

Lovelier Than Ever

Mrs. O is visiting St. Dmitriy Nursing College of Sisters of Mercy in Moscow today. The first lady is re-wearing a Jason Wu frock, first seen last November during an interview with Barbara Walters. As many will recall, the interview was the first time Mrs. O wore a dress by the young designer.

We have always loved this dress for its trick of the eye. What might appear to be a print is in fact thousands of embroidered french knots, representative of Jason Wu's fine craftsmanship. The bright blues of Mrs. O's Matryoshka doll - a gift from her hosts - pop against the graphic black and white of her dress.
