Michelle Obama in Naeem Khan in China

Posted on March 24, 2014

We love FLO’s dress but we suspect it doesn’t photograph as well as it should. From far away, it just looks like a basic red lace dress.

U.S. first lady Michelle Obama, her daughters Malia and Sasha and her mother Marian Robinson with Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan after a photograph session at the Diaoyutai State guest house in Beijing, China. Michelle Obama is wearing a custom Naeem Khan deco rose threadwork embroidered 3/4 sleeve dress paired with red satin slingback kitten heels and drop earrings.

But that’s a lovely pattern and a rich, elegant shade of red. It really looks great on her. Not in love with the matching shoes, but you probably knew we were going to say that, weren’t you? Love the earrings too. And her hair looks gorgeous. Actually, every lady in these pictures looks stylish and interesting in her own right. Every woman has a distinct look. It almost looks like the whole photo op hired a costume designer. It’s a really great range of looks across cultures and generations, all in one shot. How often does that ever happen?

Can’t believe how tall the girls are now.
