This Week in Mrs. O

On Wednesday, the First Lady hosted a screening of "The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete," a film produced by Alicia Keys. For the occasion, Mrs. O wore an Alexis Bittar "Jardin mystere torsade" lucite necklace paired with a black silk blouse.

On Thursday, Mrs. O participated in an event on college opportunities at the Eisenhower Executive Office building. For the event, Mrs. O wore a navy dress with clean lines, cropped sleeves, and coordinating pumps. 

Finally, for those in the Washington, D.C. area, the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History is now displaying the First Lady's 2013 inaugural ball gown designed by Jason Wu in a special one-year loan from the White House. The gown is displayed in the museum's "The First Ladies" exhibit.

Have a happy weekend!


Ray of Sunshine

The First Lady hosted the second Kids' "State Dinner" in the East Room of the White House today, in partnership with Epicurious, the Department of Education, and the Department of Agriculture. The event recognized 54 winners of a national recipe challenge to promote healthy lunches. For the event, Mrs. O wore a Michael Kors sunshine metallic silk matelasse sheath dress, last seen in October 2009, here. Alexis Bittar bracelets from the designer's Elements collection completed the look.


A Familiar Gown with a New Twist

The President and First Lady attended an official dinner at the Presidential Palace in Dakar, Senegal on Thursday evening. For the event, Mrs. O wore a Naeem Khan paisley print organza ballgown, previously seen at the White House Correspondents' Dinner in 2012, here. Of note are the cap sleeves, added for the occasion. 

P.S. The photo above is the only from the dinner to be published at the time of posting. I hope there will be more to follow!
