FLOTUS and her fashion picks for foreign tours
Mrs. O’s style choices make as much news as what, say, Miley Cyrus or Angelina Jolie wears to an awards event. A clever dresser, she’s been known to mix up high street fashion and haute couture from the likes of Naeem Khan and Marchesa gowns. She made a great first impression on arrival here this weekend, sporting a creation by Bibhu Mohapatra, the Indian-born, New York-based designer. He has, by the way, dressed Hollywood stars like Glenn Close and Bollywood’s Sonam Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor seem to favour him for red carpet appearances, too.
While at home, Michelle Obama might go casual and even repeat outfits – an occurrence that attracts much media attention – when abroad her looks are carefully chosen and co-ordinated.
Here are some of the designs she has sported while on state visits with the POTUS:
Michelle Obama has frequently endorsed this North Africa- born designer based in Paris. Alaia’s style is all about cuts that flatter Michelle’s figure. It is Alaia she wore for the NATO dinner in France.
On her trip to South Africa Michelle Obama sported a simple classic by this designer of Cuban origin. Vibrant colours and superior styling is what she likes about Rodriguez’s style, say insiders. She has also worn stunning designs by Rodriguez to Moscow.
Rachel Roy is a personal favourite of the First Lady. In fact, on her last visit to India, she wore a silk tunic and long skirt by the designer to a state dinner.
This is another designer Michelle Obama turns to all the time. When she travelled to Rome for the G8 Summit, Mrs O made her bias clear, wearing Jason Wu on more than one occasion.
Michelle Obama frequent wears Michael Kors, apparently liking his classic cuts and styling. While she wears MK often at home, particularly to daytime events, when she visited the Vatican last, it was in a black Michael Kors outfit.
