What would I wear if I were going to meet the Queen? It’s a question I’ve oft asked myself. Okay, not really. But I imagine the feeling is somewhat equivalent to asking yourself what to wear to meet your boyfriend’s mother for the first time (I always seem to make the wronggg decision).
Well the First Lady pulled it off without a hitch. Striking the right note between stylish and appropriately conservative, Michelle Obama chose a Jason Wu black coat, a black and white Isabel Toledo ensemble, and an Azzedine Alaïa cardigan to make her first impression. She even topped off the look with a double strand of pearls. Not her most stunning look by any stretch of the imagination, but one completely suited to the occasion.
