It’s been a while since we have checked in on the First Lady’s fashion style but I am sure it comes as no surprise that she has been scoring A’s on every occasion. Michelle wears all colors equally well but looked particularly lovely in blue on both December 8th – attending a Hanukkah reception at the White House in a blue metallic Rodarte dress, and on December 4th – at the Kennedy Center Honors – where she looked ravishing in a vibrant blue Vera Wang gown.
On December 12th the First Lady, donning a Marc Jacobs print dress (top left corner), appeared at the Children’s National Medical Center to read “The Night Before Christmas,” as has become an annual tradition. Looking equally ravishing in black as she does in color, on December 15th Mrs. Obama accompanied the President to Fort Bragg where he gave a speech to mark the end of the Iraq war. She wore a wore a washed rose and tweed dress by Rachel Roy, paired with a black cardigan and Mary Jane pumps. A divine wool and leather Alaia jacket, a black handbag and gloves completed the look.

While in Hawaii on their Christmas holiday the Obamas visited the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor on December 29th. Michelle paired bold color and stripes in a Rachel Roy dress topped off with a black cropped cardigan (bottom left corner). The Obamas celebrated Christmas by attending service at the Kaneohe Bay Chapel on Marine Corps Base Hawaii, followed by a visit with military families at Anderson Hall. Michelle again combined color and prints effortlessly in a Sophie Theallet dress and Comme des Garcon skirt. (bottom right corner).
Returning back to Washington on January 3rd the Obamas turned in their warm weather clothes for warmer, weather appropriate clothing. We love the grey striped coat and wide leg grey flannel pants, and of course it wouldn’t be Michelle with out a touch of color her bright blue gloves provided.
