Michelle Obama stepped out in a floral ensemble for Easter, wearing a dress she has been photographed wearing on two previous occasions. But for this holiday, the fashionable first lady paired the frock with its dramatic matching coat for the first time in public, according to The Huffington Post.
“Mrs. O wore a Prabal Gurung charcoal brush painted rose silk twill gazar dress and coat from the designer’s Spring 2010 collection,” elaborates the Mrs. O fashion blog about the creation. The bold flower rendered in black and grey on the traditionally cut coat and sleeveless dress gives the set a truly modern touch.
First lady Obama first wore the shift alone when she donated her white inaugural gown to the Smithsonian Museum in 2010, and then again in 2012 when she hosted former president and first lady George W. and Laura Bush at the White House for the unveiling of their official portraits.
In addition to the revelation of the matching floral coat, which was perfect for the generative theme of Easter, Mrs. Obama sported her new bangs hairstyle with soft waves.
Regarding the rest of the family, “Sasha and Malia stuck to their dresses-with-cardigans-and-ballet-flats routine,” reports New York magazine about the Obama’s Easter style. “As usual, they were subtly coordinated with their parents — Sasha’s shoes matched her dad’s tie, and Malia wore black and white like her mom.”
For the White House Easter Egg Roll held on Monday, Michelle Obama chose a much more youthful look, maintaining her sartorial edge with bold patterns and shimmering accessories.
“A black and white striped blazer worked so well with Michelle’s flared white pants, while she kept the look stylish by piling on a stack of bracelets, hoops and sequin Converse sneakers,” the Hollywood Life style blog says about her selections. “The first lady mixed prints, pairing her striped, floral tee with her striped jacket — and it was a winning combination!”
Of course, Sasha, Malia, the president and the first lady also kept it color-coordinated through the stripes, blues, and printed hues that linked their looks together in the various separates donned. This creative swirl was as playful and cheerful as their time shared with children on the White House lawn.
