President Obama and his wife, Michelle were recently visiting South Africa. The world’s first lady is a fashion icon for many, and we show you her three best styles of that week.

Blue is the way to go this season! Michelle looks great in this asymmetrical pantsuit, combined with her 1950’s-style string of pearls. We love the colour blue, so go and check this out: blue pussy bow blouse by Friede  Marie Kellerman R399. Click here to have a look.

This lacy patterned gold and black jacquard dress from Lela Rose is absolutely gorgeous! The full skirt is so feminine! She pairs it perfectly with her string pearls and black cardigan.

Michelle looks amazing in this Naeem Khan Spring 2013 creation. This one-shoulder cocktail dress just proves that she is a timeless fashionista. This look is perfectly finished off with a chunky statement necklace. Buy a necklace for R225 from Lily & Rose here.
