Jet Set

The President and First Lady flew to Dallas, Texas today, where they will join former presidents in inaugurating the presidential library and museum of George W. Bush. Arriving at Dallas Love Field Airport, Mrs. O wore a pink draped neck dress (a new frock, perhaps?) paired with a black belt and cropped cardigan. Silver heels completed the look.

Update: At the dedication of the presidential center, Mrs. O re-wore a powder blue Zac Posen suit, previously seen here for the official welcome ceremony for British Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha Cameron at the White House in March 2012.

While in Texas, the Obamas also attended a memorial for victims of the fertilizer plant explosion in West, Texas held at Baylor University in Waco, Texas.


Happy Birthday Mrs. O

Michelle LaVaughn Robinson Obama turns 49 today! Happy Birthday Mrs. O! The first lady is reported to be celebrating with friends and family at Cafe Milano in Georgetown tonight. Also in the birthday mix: gorgeous new bangs (see above, where Mrs. O is pictured with inaugural citizen co-chair David Hall) and a new Twitter handle (see here).

Update: In the photo above, Mrs. O wears a knit dress by Zac Posen, confirmed by the designer here. Alexis Bittar stackable bangles complete the look.


NATO Spouses in Chicago



As NATO leaders gathered in Chicago, Illinois yesterday, the First Lady hosted spouses for a special event at the Gary Comer Youth Center on the South Side. For the event, Mrs. O wore a cream hued dress with pleat and seam detailing at the neckline. For her photo with Anne-Mette Rasmussen, wife of NATO Secretary General Fogh Rasmussen, Mrs. O donned a coordinating jacket.

Earlier in the weekend, as the President and First Lady arrived in Chicago on Saturday evening, the couple was greeted by Mayor Rahm Emanuel and his wife Amy Rule. For travel, Mrs. O wore an olive hued wrap top paired with a printed skirt.

Update: For the Gary Comer Youth Center event, Mrs. O wore a Zac Posen dress and jacket, confirmed by the designer via Twitter. Miguel Ases earrings completed the look. Arriving in Chicago, Mrs. O wore a Rachel Roy Runway to Green Stencil skirt, also confirmed by the designer via Twitter.


State Dinner Preview

The First Lady hosted a state dinner preview this afternoon, wearing a sleeveless pale blue Zac Posen dress with a blue belt at the waist. A bejeweled Saloni bird brooch completed the look. As we've come to expect from Mrs. O, the pin represents a clever nod to the state dinner. Saloni is a jewelry brand created by London based, Indian fashion designer Saloni Lodha.

The press preview was open not only to press, but also local students and 12 young women from the Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School in the United Kingdom. The First Lady has developed a special connection with the school since her first visit in 2009, seen here.


An Official Welcome 

This morning the President and First Lady hosted an official welcome ceremony for British Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha Cameron in the garden of the White House. On the style front: Mrs. O wore a pale blue dress and jacket paired with metallic heels, while Samantha Cameron opted for a colorblock dress. Perhaps the ladies coordinated their palettes?

Update #1: Designer Zac Posen has confirmed that the First Lady's suit is his creation. The New York based designer has ties to London. He studied at Central Saint Martins, and created a dress that is part of the permanent collection at the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Update #2: Samantha Cameron wears the Spring 2012 Beatrice dress by Roksanda Ilincic.
