It’s a moment we’ve all been waiting for – the meeting of the world’s best-dressed First Ladies.
First Lady Michelle Obama and her French fashion equal, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, finally came face-to-face as they accompanied their husbands to a meeting in France. And in an off twist of fashion fate, both First Ladies were wearing tie-neck jackets. Talk about fashion sync.
Mrs. Obama wore a floral jacquard coat & matching dress by Thakoon, who she sported on the campaign trail. Mrs. Bruni-Sarkozy opted for her go-to fashion favorite Christian Dior, wearing a gray belted lambskin coat with a slightly flared sleeve. The First Ladies both wore slight shoes, kitten heels for MObama and Dior ballet flats for Bruni-Sarkozy, considering their towering heights.
Bruni-Sarkozy made headlines when she made her first official visit to the UK and wore a beautifully selected wardrobe by Christian Dior, featuring a pill-box hat which had on-lookers regarding her as the new Jackie O. But MObama has taken the fashion industry, and political world, by storm with her selection of lesser-known American designers and cutting edge pieces.
In the end both First Ladies looked fashionable, elegant and appropriate and stayed true to their colors by being represented their home fashion teams. I can’t wait for any future First Lady summits with the two of them.
