Speaking at the 40th anniversary of the National Partnership for Women & Families on Thursday (and hugging organization president Debra Ness, above), the First Lady wore a melon-hued dress with textured detail through the skirt. Metallic open-top heels and Phillips Frankel amazonite and ruby earrings complete the look. What a beautiful summer palette.

Update: Mrs. O wears a Rachel Roy coral silk jacquard dress with wave pleat embroidery.

Enjoy a closer look at these gorgeous earrings, first worn when Mrs. O visited Buckingham Palace late last month.

A Royal Affair

Well, if reuniting First Lady Mrs. O and the Queen weren't exciting enough, let's throw Kate Middleton (make that Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge) into the mix! Oh my goodness!

For this historic occasion, Mrs. O has chosen a delightful dress. The mint hued floral frock is the gorgeous work of Barbara Tfank, from the designer's Resort 2011 collection, seen here. A pink cropped swing jacket also by Barbara Tfank and jeweled brooch complete the look.

A note on Catherine: Grazia UK reports that the Duchess wears the Shola Bandage Dress from high street retailer Reiss. More on the dress, here.

Update: On the jewelry front, Mrs. O wore Phillips Frankel amazonite and ruby earrings available at Fragments in New York. The pin is a 1940s Hobe brooch from House of Lavande.
