A White House Christmas

Hooray for the White House Flickr page, which has released new photos from various White House events held over the past month. Below we'll share our favorites, which include first looks at a few new Mrs. O frocks.

The president and first lady descend the grand staircase at the White House, to attend the "Christmas in Washington" event on December 13th.  For the occasion, Mrs. O chose a pleated jersey dress by Isabel Toledo ("very Marilyn Monroe" in the designer's words).

On December 4th, the president and first lady met Edith Childs of Greenwood, S.C.. Ms. Childs coined the phrase, "Fired Up! Read To Go!" which became the chant of the Obama campaign. Mrs. O wore a Michael Kors Gold Silk Lurex suit jacket and matching pencil skirt for the event. To note, we've seen the first lady wear the same ensemble in bold yellow and metallic red for prior events.

A Festive Frock

First Lady Mrs. O hosted her first of many upcoming holiday events at the White House today, speaking alongside members of the US Marine Corps and representatives from Toys for Tots. The focus of today's event was to thank the volunteers who decorated the White House for the Christmas holidays. Preparations for the decorations began this summer, culminating in a volunteer effort by 92 people from 24 states who spent more than 3400 hours decorating the White House. Read more detail here.

Mrs. O chose a teal silk matelasse dress for the event, accessorizing with small drop earrings and her hair pulled into a chignon.

UPDATE: First Lady Mrs. O wears a dress by Michael Kors. We love!

Of note, Simon Doonan of Barney's is spearheading holiday decorations at the White House this year. We can't wait to see what they entail! Click here for further reading on the collaboration.

To hear the first lady's remarks from today's event:

For the occasion, Mrs. O turned to a classic skirt and cardigan combination, wearing a black and blue purple print skirt paired with a black cardigan, the latter adorned with a jeweled brooch at the collar. To see a bit more detail on the skirt and pin, click here and here.

New White House photos on Flickr provide a second look at our favorite dresses of recent weeks.

In the top photo, Mrs. O wears a sequinned Michael Kors frock, worn for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute's 32nd Annual Awards Gala in Washington, D.C.

In the second photo, Mrs. O wears a cobalt blue dress by Jason Wu as she meets former Olympic gymnast Nadia Comaneci. Note the fantastic detail on the crocodile print fabric.

Update #1: We've also added a photo from the gymnastics demonstration that took place on the White House lawn in mid-September. Grazia Fashion has reported that Mrs. O's skirt is Erdem, noting that the designer is "known for his painterly approach to print and colour, and elegant ladylike tailoring." We recall that someone from Mrs-O.org spotted the designer as Erdem a few weeks ago and noted it in the comments. Please remind us who - we'd like to give you recognition!

Update #2: That person is Ari. Hooray!

On a Winning Streak (Update)

The president has joined Mrs. O to attend the Chicago 2016 presentation at the Bella Centre in Copenhagen this morning, where the first lady has continued her fashion tour de force. This morning Mrs. O is wearing a lemon meringue brocade matelasse sheath dress, paired with a coordinating cardigan. More to follow.

Update #1: Despite an impressive showing on the part of our first lady, Chicago has lost its bid to host the 2016 Olympics. The AP writes: "Chicago had seemed to pick up momentum in the last few days, with many IOC members seemingly charmed by Mrs. Obama." Count us among those charmed, indeed!

Update #2: Mrs. O is wearing a Michael Kors sunshine metallic silk matelasse sheath dress!
