The always fashionable Obama ladies have started their visit to China.

First lady Michelle Obama, joined by her daughters, Sasha and Malia, and her mother, Marian Robinson, made their first stop in Beijing.

The group was all smiles as they visited a local high school and later met Chinese president Xi Jinping and his wife, Peng Liyuan, at the Diaoyutai State guest house for dinner.

FLOTUS shined in a red dress paired with red pumps for the evening. Sasha, 12, donned a similarly red dress paired with black tights and silver flats.

Fifteen-year-old Malia looked chic in a high waisted skirt and matching crop top paired with black tights and black flats, while FLOTUS’ mother selected a patterned green dress for the dinner.

The Obamas arrived in China Thursday for their seven-day visit.  The ladies will tour three cities throughout their stay.

Michelle Obama is scheduled to speak at Peking University today and on Sunday, the Obama ladies will visit the Great Wall of China.
