The First Family appeared at the dedication cermeony of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C. today. On the fashion front, Mrs. O wore a cranberry-hued dress by Alaia. A cardigan and pin at the waist completed the look. We've seen this dress once before, in September 2010, here.

Update: Mrs. O wears an Alexis Bittar Resort bowtie pin.

The First Lady hosted a luncheon for winners of the 2011 Cooper Hewitt National Design Awards at the White House yesterday. Speaking to the audience, Mrs. O shared:

"These men and women have breathed new life into our homes and our workplaces, the clothes we wear, the products we use every day, and even the most basic ways we process information." 

To peruse the full list of winners, which include J. Mendel in Fashion Design and Knoll in Corporate & Institutional Achievement, click here.

On a style note, Mrs. O appears to have worn the same Derek Lam dress (reworked to be sans sleeves), first debuted during a trip to Indonesia in November 2010, here. Gunmetal fan earrings by Alexis Bittar complete the look.

The President and First Lady are hosting German Chancellor Angela Merkel and her husband Joachim Sauer for a State Dinner at the White House this evening. 

For the occasion, Mrs. O has chosen a stunning ivory chiffon gown with linear crystal beading by designer Naeem Khan. An armful of Alexis Bittar bangles complete the look.

Naeem Khan has certainly become one of the First Lady's go-to designers for formal events! This is the third Naeem Khan gown that Mrs. O has worn since November 2009.

In Santiago, Chile, the First Family greeted Chile's President Sebastian Pinera and First Lady Cecilia Morel at the La Moneda government palace. For the event, Mrs. O wore a light blue lace dress with a fitted top and full skirt, accessorized with a signature floral pin at the shoulder.

Update: While Mrs. O's dress remains a mystery, the first lady's iris pin is Alexis Bittar.

Update (5/24): Mrs. O wears a circa 1950s Blue Ribbon Lace Dress from New York Vintage.
