Michelle Obama Wore Belted Burberry in Belfast


Arriving in Northern Ireland for the G8 summit today, the Obamas dressed sensibly for the weather, with Michelle in a snappy new corseted Burberry trench with a leather belt. This is one of her best silhouettes — a fitted waist with structure throughout the bodice — and it’s interesting that she left it partially unbuttoned, perhaps to avoid that stiff look that double-breasted jackets can have.

Meanwhile, the first daughters color-coordinated their lower halves (as usual), with Malia in pink sandals to match Sasha’s raspberry-colored khakis; like their mom, they also had on wool peacoats. Oh, and Barack wore a navy suit, again.
