Michelle Obama and SamCam sport dazzling dayglo in first joint
US: They have much to talk about together - not only are they
married to two of the world's most powerful men but both consistently
champion home fashion designers and have developed confident, individual
senses of style in their roles.
Michelle Obama today welcomed Samantha Cameron to Washington DC with
a special mini-Olympics staged at the city's American University. The
British Prime Minister's wife looked relaxed in the First Lady's company
as she joked with students and sports players.
As focused as they were on the job at hand - the event a nod to the
fast-approaching London Olympic Games - the influential duo can't have
failed to have noticed the riot of colour created by the meeting of
their bright ensembles.
Proving that they are comfortable with bold wardrobe choices, the
women could not be missed on the basketball court as their dayglo hues
Supporting the best of British designers, SamCam, 40, paired her
black Joseph trousers and navy suede LK Bennett pumps with a fuschia top
- as worn to a recent British Fashion Council event - by Roksanda
Illinic. Her black belt is by Emilia Wickstead.
At her side was Mrs Obama, 48, striking as ever in an embellished
bright yellow knitted cardigan by L'Wren Scott.
