Michelle Obama in Peter Som

Posted on February 23, 2012

We haven’t checked in on Shelley for a while. Let’s rectify.

US President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama attend ceremony for the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall in Washington, DC. Michelle Obama wore a dress and coat by Peter Som.

 

What a fabulously First Lady-ish coat. Classic, with a modern feel to it that keeps it from being too Jackie or Mamie. Can’t see the dress, but we really don’t have to with a coat like that. Now, can we talk about the shoes? Because we really hate Mary Janes with heels, but this pair is totally working for us. We think it’s the combo of kitten heel, pointy toe, and delicate strap that’s making it work, proving that proportions matter even in shoes.

There’s nothing earth-shattering about any of this, but it’s all put together quite well.

MAN, do they both look exhausted.
