Landing in South Africa

The President and First Lady traveled to Pretoria, South Africa on Tuesday to attend the memorial service of former President Nelson Mandela. Departing Air Force One, Mrs. O wore a tiered colorblock and print dress. A cropped black cardigan, kitten heels and an oversize umbrella completed the look.

Update: The First Lady wears a dress by Narciso Rodriguez.


Honoring Veterans

To honor Veterans Day, the First Lady attended a ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National Cemetery. For the ceremony, Mrs. O wore a black wool Burberry coat with double-breasted closure paired with knee-high black boots.

On Thursday, the First Lady gave the keynote address to attendees of the Disney Veterans Institute jobs forum in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. For the event, Mrs. O wore a black short sleeve dress with pink detailing at the neckline. This dress looks familiar, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Does anyone recall where we've seen it before?

Update: Thanks to reader Parker, who found the dress: Narciso Rodriguez from 2009 and 2010, here.


This Week in Mrs. O

On Thursday, the President and First Lady hosted Halloween celebrations at the White House, welcoming local trick-or-treaters and children of military families. For the occasion, Mrs. O went for a bold and festive look, pairing orange trousers with an orange and grey colorblock top. The President even catered his ensemble to the holiday, wearing a light orange button down shirt under a black sweater.

On Wednesday, Mrs. O was joined by local school children for the fall harvest of the White House kitchen garden. For her garden work, Mrs. O paired a light blue and navy top with legging jeans in "tarnish green" from AG Adriano Goldschmied.

Earlier on Wednesday, Mrs. O was joined by Sesame Street characters Elmo and Rosita for an event to promote healthy eating, held in the State Dining Room of the White House. For the event, Mrs. O wore a pink and burgundy colorblock dress by Narciso Rodriguez. It seems Mrs. O was all about colorblocking this week!


Back to the White House

President and First Lady Obama returned to the White House yesterday following a week of vacation in Martha's Vineyard. For the return trip, Mrs. O wore a Narciso Rodriguez ginkgo print dress from the designer's Resort 2008 collection, previously seen here.


Off to Africa

The Obama family left Washington today for their week long trip to Senegal, South Africa, and Tanzania. For her travel attire, Mrs. O went back to a classic - a striped Narciso Rodriguez dress from Resort 2008, first seen at a Florida campaign rally in April 2008. A look at the dress then:
