First Lady Michelle Obama wrapped up a five-day trip to Asia Sunday to promote the U.S.-led education initiative “Let Girls Learn.” According to the U.S. News & World Report, the program, to be run by the Peace Corps, is meant to help millions of girls stay in school and overcome economic or cultural pressures that force many to drop out.
The First Lady touched down in Tokyo Wednesday for her first visit to the country, emerging from Air Force One in a lime green graphic-print flared frock from the Kenzo fall 2014 collection. She accessorized with a waist-cinching Roksanda Ilincic belt and classic black pumps. Kenzo is a French fashion house founded by Japanese designer Kenzo Takada, but designed by American team Humberto Leon and Carol Lim.
FLOTUS wore an Acacia Grenadine floral print blazer and custom skirt from the designer’s spring 2015 collection to the Japan-U.S. Girls Education event in Tokyo Thursday March 19. She styled the outfit with metallic silver pumps.
On Day 3 of her Japan visit, Mrs. Obama wore a printed Riah coat and Hemke shirt from Dries Van Noten’s spring 2015 collection as she joined the Akutagawa High School’s Taiko Club for a performance at the Fushimi Inari Taisha Shrine in Kyoto.
To tour the temple complex at Angkor Wat in Siem Reap, Cambodia, on Saturday, FLOTUS opted for a more casual look: a paneled BCBG Max Azria dress over black leggings with Converse sneakers.
