Invited by China's First Lady Peng Liyuan, US First Lady Michelle Obama is visiting China with her daughters this week. The two ladies will definitely attract attention in terms of fashion. Peng turned the world onto Chinese designer Ma Ke and the label Exception de Mixmind, while Mrs. Obama has made famous the American designer Jason Wu, along with Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren. Before their styles meet, let us review some of the attractive moments the two First Ladies have had under the public eye.

First Strike

Michelle Obama wore a Thom Browne design to the US Presidential Inauguration. The Fist Lady arrived at St. John's Church in Washington DC, wearing a checked-pattern overcoat. Her dark pink gloves were also highlights of her outfit. The designer said he was asked to send an idea to the White House before, but wasn't told Michelle Obama would be wearing it. He said to the Times, "I wanted her to feel good in it and to feel comfortable, strong, feminine and beautiful."

Peng, who accompanied her husband President Xi Jingping on his first state visit to Russia, wore a navy blue coat from designer Ma Ke. Her overcoat, together with the square black handbag, was very elegant. Her look's highlight was in her light-blue scarf, adding a light style to her classic look.
