I must say I appreciated the First Ladies decorum during Nelson Mandelas memorial service while our president was acting like a teenager.

Mmm... Not one of my favourites I'm afraid. This dress makes her look larger than she is and the design kind of cuts her in half. I think if the black border at the hem wasn't so deep it would look better. Love the pearls though 😊

Maybe it looks better in person, but the outfit appears dowdy, first impression is an apron over a dress. If warmth was needed, a knee length coat would look better than the mini sweater which further chops up the attire. Oh well, everyone has a miss once in a while.

It's an interesting dress. I feel like there might be pattern on the bottom black panel that we can't see.

This is not her best look. The dress looks as if she's wearing a pinafore, and the shoes should be the same color as her legs, not black. Also, the cardigan look has worn itself out.

A strange dress; certainly not flattering for the camera......

Not a flattering look; this one is a fashion miss--no matter how wonderful Mrs O is, she still misses the mark upon occasion.

lovely always...

Another fantastic dress!! She always represents the Nation with such dignity, class and elegance. This looks like Narciso Rodriguez - is it? SPECTACULAR look for such an important event.

Mrs. O's ensemble helps present an honorably somber, and quietly respectful demeanor in a way at this event that no other national representative can to this world leader's legacy.

beautiful dress...

A very unexpected look for this arrival. However, it appears she changed before attending the memorial service. Would love to see this dress up close and personal. Wondering how she avoided a coat; it does appear chilly. Very surprised at the shorts selected and worn to the basketball game in Hawaii.

Mrs. O is gorgeous as always! Look how sweet they are when Mr. O hold her arms when she walked downstairs. gotaram
