The Obamas went to France on Saturday to commemorate the 65th anniversary of D-Day with the Sarkozys. As though part of a springtime-dressing conspiracy, Michelle Obama and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy wore startlingly similar white ensembles. Michelle wore a white Michael Kors coat over a white sheath dress likely by Narciso Rodriguez, cinched with a silver Givenchy belt. (Many outlets incorrectly reported that the dress was by Michael Kors, but the label issued a statement to clarify they made the coat.) Carla wore an off-white dress by — who else? — Dior, topped with a black coat similar in cut to Michelle's. So as not to emasculate their world-leader husbands, they both wore kitten heels, as usual. Clearly, when two glamorous First Ladies get together wearing dresses, one must take the best-dressed prize. In this case we can probably all agree that prize should not just be words of praise in blogs and newspapers around the world but also a gift basket consisting of Shout stain-remover wipes, Clorox bleach pens, and a two-pack of Oxiclean Spray Away. Because even First Ladies aren't stain resistant. Last time these two met, we not-at-all arbitrarily declared MObama the winner. But this time we'll ask you — who wore white better? Carla or Michelle? Leave your answer in the comments!
