Michelle Obama and Her Daughters Leave Spain in Style After a Successful Overseas Trip

Posted on

Michelle Obama‘s three-country Let Girls Learn tour has come to an end. But before heading home to Washington D.C. on Friday with teenage daughters Malia and Sasha, the First Lady wowed, once again, in a chic printed ensemble.

Obama looked like a monochromatic muse in a black and white geometric patterned short sleeve dress from Preen By Thornton Bregazzi as she boarded Air Force One at Torrejon airbase in Madrid. Along with this design by London British fashion duo Justin Thornton and Thea Bregazzi, FLOTUS donned looks by Altuzarra, Delpozo and two outfits by Proenza Schouler throughout her travels to Liberia, Morocco and Spain.

Meanwhile, Malia and Sasha showed their love for affordable retail pieces once again. Obama’s youngest child, 15, was dressed in a paisley print dress from ASOS and the future Harvard student, 17, looked elegant in a LBD.

Earlier in the day, the first daughters modeled pretty prints as Malia wearing an off-the-shoulder black top with a choker, ASOS floral midi skirt and low-heeled strappy sandals, and Sasha gave us all print envy in a red floral-print sleeveless dress.

"It means encouraging your daughters, not just your sons, to study math and science and sign up for the football team…and if there isn’t a team for girls, maybe it means asking why not. That’s how you all will begin to break down those old stereotypes and biases –- that’s how you’ll change the way that women and girls are seen. And that’s the kind of work that we need to be doing around the world –- the work of changing culture. The work of changing expectations and standards that we have for women and girls.That’s how we’ll begin to help those 62 million girls who aren’t in school." —First Lady @MichelleObama speaking to girls and young women in Spain.

The purpose for the Obamas’ international trip was to promote the Let Girls Learn initiative, which aims to promote education for girls in countries where they may not have access to decent schooling.
