What Michelle Obama Wore To Cuba

Michelle Obama is fabulous. She is the perfect blend of class and sass. She is always graceful, poised and polite; yet she still remains relatable and accessible.

No other place is her fabulous-ness displayed than through her wardrobe. Classically sophisticated, yet simple and demure, Michelle is always styled to the nines. Her trendy style has photographers constantly clamoring for a shot of her latest fashion finds. Her style choices dominate the headlines of all the major fashion magazines for days on end.

Her recent trip to Cuba is no exception.

This trip to Cuba is an epic event of historic proportions. The first and last time a sitting US president ever set foot on Cuban soil was Calvin Coolidge in 1928. The Obamas’ visit was the official and definitive end to 88 years of broken ties between Cuba and the U.S.

Michelle’s style, presence and FLOTUS swag nearly upstaged the event. People can’t stop talking about what she was wearing.

Fashionista described her arrival outfit of choice this way:

“ Michelle Obama chose to wear a sleeveless, A-line dress printed with roses and polka dots by Carolina Herrera for the occasion — a fitting look to ring in the spring season.”

For the Cuban State Dinner on Monday evening, Michelle was equally as stylish. She went with the same floral theme and absolutely slayed in her Naeem Kahn dress.

Michelle Obama attended the Cuban State Dinner on Monday evening hosted by President Raul Castro, and the First Lady chose a Naeem Khan dress from the designer’s pre-fall 2016 collection for the occasion. Much like her arrival outfit by Carolina Herrera, the long-sleeved piece has a floral motif — a theme she seems to be running with during this historic visit to Cuba. Khan’s all-over print surely makes a multicolored statement, so Obama opted for simple accents, including a pair of black pumps and red drop earrings.”—Fashionista.

The monumental trip to Cuba made history—but Michelle’s outfits were the real news.
