First Lady Michelle Obama wears Kenzo, looks cooler than ever: shop her dress!
Michelle Obama landed yesterday in Tokyo to partner with the country on the White House’s “Let Girls Learn” initiative, which aims to educate girls worldwide. The program, which is cosponsored by Akie Abe, the wife of Japan’s Prime Minister, will promote education for young women across the globe. Young women and girls worldwide are dramatically less likely to be in school or to complete a formal education, a problem that is dramatically exacerbated in developing countries. The new program aims to keep schools open to girls and to work toward mitigating the wide variety of circumstances, from child labor and exploitation, to gender prejudice which prevent many girls from attending or finishing school.
The first lady was wearing a long-sleeved, A-line flared neon yellow dress featuring thin white vertical stripes with a chevron black and white graphic pattern running horizontally from Kenzo’s (run by two American designers, founded by japanese-born Kenzo Takada and own by a french luxury group) FW14 collection. She accessorized the dress by accentuating the waist with a black and gold metallic belt and a pair of plain black pumps to match. How cool and fashion-forward does she look?
