I Think This Is the Coolest Thing Michelle Obama Has Ever Worn

Michelle Obama is currently on a book tour for her new memoir, Becoming, and she is using her wardrobe to separate herself from her FLOTUS persona. She is wearing outfits and labels that are far away from her traditional styling—leaning on trouser suits, cult Instagram brands like By Far and trend-led touches, such as ‘80s-inspired crystal brooches and saddle bags.

Obama has also been wearing a lot of white, with highlights including a crisp wide-leg ivory jumpsuit and a white trouser suit. Anne-Marie Curtis, the editor in chief of Elle UK, met Obama and said to the Guardian of her use of colour: “She was wearing a cream trouser suit and very high stilettos. She is extremely tall and incredibly toned, so she is seriously imposing. For her portraits in Elle, we wanted images that felt like fashion, but also a true portrait of her. There is a candour to wearing white that connects to the book, and how honest she is.”

Her most recent look, however, has got to be the best to date. Waving goodbye to the formality of White House style, Michele rocked up to the Copenhagen stop of her tour in an unbelievably cool crystal-embellished blush pink suit from Scandi label Stine Goya. A customised iteration on the brand’s blue two-piece (see below), the look was seriously flattering on Michele’s statuesque proportions, which were further enhanced by a pair of metallic court shoes. This has definitely been given the Who What Wear seal of approval—more of this, please, Michelle! Scroll down to see the suit in all its glory.
