President Obama is visiting Berlin for the first time this week (that’s German Chancellor Angela Merkel up there on the right)–which means Michelle Obama will be wearing a bunch of nice dresses and we get to care about them. Last night, for example, the President and First lady attended a fancy dinner at Charlottenburg Palace and MObama went for an unusual but characteristically ladylike look.
The First Lady opted for a Pre-Fall 2013 Carolina Herrera dress; a jacquard wave print piece with a square neckline, a serious drop waist and architectural pleating. The straps, you’ll notice, are accented with bows. The First Lady finished off the look with sensible black befitting-a-First-Lady kitten heels and gently waved, side-parted hair.
We are really into the color (and square necklines in general), though perhaps the flounce is a little exaggerated? RCFA, for one, posits Michelle would have been better suited to the sheath version. What say you?
Here’s another look:
