The president and first lady are attending a state dinner in New Delhi, India this evening, as guests of the president of India, Pratibha Patil, and her husband, Devisingh Patil. For the occasion, Mrs. O has chosen a stunning silver, floor-length skirt, paired with a bronze-gold top and gold belt at the waist. What a fabulous mix of metallics!

Update: Mrs. O wears a Sable Moroccan Tunic and Dune Velvet Skirt by Rachel Roy. As many of you know, Rachel Roy is an American designer of Indian and Dutch heritage.

First Lady Mrs. O delivered remarks at the National Restaurant Association's fall board meeting at the Hyatt Regency in Washington, DC today, with a focus on her "Let's Move" initiative. Per the Wall Street Journal, Mrs. O outlined menu changes she hopes to see in the restaurant industry: 

“I’m not asking any of you to make drastic changes to every single one of your recipes or to totally change the way you do business. But what I am asking is that you consider reformulating your menu in pragmatic and incremental ways to create healthier versions of the foods that we all love. That could mean substituting wheat pasta for white pasta in your regular recipes, or taking … an existing dish and cutting the amount of butter or cream.”

The strong message was matched with equal parts femininity. For the event, Mrs. O wore a washed rose and tweed dress by Rachel Roy, last seen for Barbara Walters' interview with the first lady in late 2009, here

First lady Mrs. O attended an event about the Affordable Care Act at George Washington University Hospital in Washington, DC yesterday. For the event, Mrs. O wore a summery white and yellow print dress. Gold bangle bracelets completed the look. The first lady seems to have a penchant for abstract patterns as of late!

Update: Rachel Roy confirmed on Twitter that Mrs. O was wearing her Cadmium Draped Floral Dress yesterday. Rachel Roy has certainly become one of Mrs. O's go-tos in recent months!
