WEARING THE BLUES

At a visit to a school in London, Michelle Obama dazzled in a Jason Wu cocktail dress with an argyle cardigan by Junya Watanabe. Her double strand of pearls offered a more traditional, sophisticated spin on the otherwise funky look.

Following a dinner at Downing Street, Michelle manages to look understated and elegant while still showing off her famously toned arms in a satin Isabel Toledo tuxedo tank dress, low black heels, and her ubiquitous pearls.

Michelle donned a $298 bead and rhinestone J. Crew cardigan and $158 mint green gingham pencil skirt on her way to Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centre, rendering the style of the prime minister’s wife, Sarah Brown, dull by comparison.

FLYING HIGH

Michelle didn’t appear the slightest bit rumpled from her plane ride to Essex and emerged glowing in a chartreuse dress designed by Jason Wu. Her black sweater jacket was cinched with her favorite studded Azzedine Alaïa belt.
