Mrs. O in Conde Nast Traveler

This is certainly the month of Mrs. O magazine covers! The first lady is also on the cover of Conde Nast Traveler for the month of May. For the article, "Mrs. Obama's Washington," click here. For behind the scenes photos, here.

Update: Per WWD, the first lady's pink dress is Diane von Furstenberg.

Mrs. O debuted a new Fall dress as she deplaned in Pittsburgh. We love the mix of pattern and texture at play, as well as the subtle bohemian details in the the tiered skirt and gathered arms.

Also, we've noticed that Mrs. O has a penchant for metallic flats...and they seem to go with everything!

Update: Mrs. O's dress is DVF! (Thank you InsideDVF for linking to us.)

This morning Mrs. O spoke in support of health care legislation at the White House, dressed in a boldly printed black and ivory skirt, ruffled blouse and muted green cardigan - all belted at the waist, of course.

Update: Thanks to the tip in the comments, we've discovered Mrs. O's skirt is Diane von Furstenberg, the Bhare Skirt in African bands from the designer's Fall 2009 collection, seen here.

Bold and Beautiful (Update)

This afternoon the President and First Lady Mrs. O attended a Medal of Honor ceremony for U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Jared C. Monti who was killed in Afghanistan in June 2006. For the occasion, Mrs. O debuted a new floral frock in a bold, red rose print, accessorized with green kitten heels and chandelier earrings.

Update: Thanks to Leslie who has observed similarity in the print of this DVF dress and the one Mrs. O is wearing above. The cuts are of course different, but the prints bear a striking resemblance. We will look into this and report back.

Later in the day, First Lady Mrs. O shopped for fruits and veggies at the opening of a new farmer's market two blocks from the White House. The new market will be open every Thursday for the next seven weeks. Note that Mrs. O's shopping basket matched her dressed down ensemble. Perhaps a coincidence, but a stylish one!

Mrs. O spoke at the opening of the Farmers' Market, sharing:

"You know, when we decided to plant the White House garden, we thought it would be a great way to educate kids about eating more healthy. Right, kids? Vegetables? Yay for vegetables! But as it turned out, the garden has turned into so much more than we could have ever expected, and it's a really fun thing to do as well. This has been one of the greatest things that I've done in my life so far. It's just been a tremendous honor, and working with the kids in the D.C. community and hearing how they've learned and how they're growing and how they're sharing the information with their families just warms my heart and makes me hopeful for the future."

For the full remarks, click here. Also, as observed in the comments, Mrs. O appears to be carrying a Bolga Market basket, traditionally woven in the Northern Ghana town of Bolgatanga.
