Shelley O Goes to the Olympics

And FLO shut it the hell down. WERQ, gurl!

 

First Lady Michelle Obama arrives for a reception at Buckingham Palace for Heads of State and Government attending the Olympics Opening Ceremony at Buckingham Palace in London, England. Michelle Obama wore a J. Mendel white viscose techno crepe tailored jacket with overlapped side panels and silver embroidery from the 2013 Resort collection, along with a J. Mendel ivory silk satin faced chiffon pleated skirt.

That closeup on her face? Never looked lovelier. Her hair and makeup are flawless here. That top is difficult to pull off and under different circumstances (like if she’d worn it with pants) we would be wailing and gnashing our teeth in protest, but pairing it with that crisp pleated skirt was exactly the right way to go. And while the shoes are matchy, we honestly don’t think another color was needed here. It all works like gangbusters. As Mrs. Cathy went out in one of our least favorite Mrs. Cathy outfits, Mrs. O managed to surprise us by wearing what may be one of our favorite FLOTUS outfits.
