MObama's going to London today with Barack on their first trip overseas since taking office. But never mind what he's doing at the G20 conference, because MObama's going to wear clothes. She's bringing with her a week's worth of day and evening outfits. For the most part her schedule will be planned by Prime Minister Gordon Brown's wife, Sarah, and she'll probably wear things by her favorite American labels, like J.Crew and Narciso Rodriguez. The Telegraph reports that it's unknown whether MObama will bring her hairstylist Johnny Wright with her. But when Carla Bruni-Sarkozy took her first official trip to London as the First Lady of France, she appeared to have done her own hair and makeup the whole time, so maybe MObama can wing it, too.
The big question is what MObama will wear Wednesday to meet the Queen. When Carla met the queen she wore a charming pillbox hat and later told David Letterman "you have to wear a hat." (The Obamas were thoroughly trained in proper Queen etiquette before departing.) So will Michelle wear a hat? We'd be tickled if she got one from Aretha Franklin's milliner Luke Song, who designed the famous gray-bow hat for the inauguration. Hell, we'd be tickled to see her in any kind of hat. One thing's for sure — she'll arrive wearing a Thakoon coat and Jimmy Choo shoes, as you see here, unless she changes on the plane, but we'd be surprised if she were that high maintenance. Carla's not going to any of the festivities, so we unfortunately won't witness a grand international-fashion-icon face-off. But tomorrow, get ready for MObama-outfit mayhem à la Inauguration Day. We're already obsessed.
