Style spotting: Michelle Obama lands in India wearing Indian-American designer Bibhu Mohapatra–Indo-American Style Diplomacy

First Lady and style icon, Michelle Obama, who is in India on a 3 day visit with her husband President Barack Obama landed in New Delhi today. And, as expected, as soon as she landed in India, Mrs. Obama raised the style quotient by wearing an Indian-American designer. Michelle looked absolutely fabulous and sharp wearing a geometric-floral motif knee length dress designed by Bibhu Mohapatra for his Spring 2015 collection. She completed the look with a complementing cape and a pair of black pump. This is not the first time that Michelle has worn Bibhu. She has worn another outfit by the designer while appearing on Jay Leno’s TV show. Mr. Mohapatra, who is based in New York, was born and raised in Rourkela in Odisha.

Michelle is one of the best dressed women in the world; hence it comes as no surprise that the Indian fashion fraternity had been very busy speculating the looks she will wear during her second visit to India. During her first visit in 2010, she wore a silk tunic by Rachel Roy while attending the state dinner at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. So people for the next three days, apart from Indo-America diplomacy between Narendra Modi and Barack Obama, all eyes will be on Michelle’s Indo-American style diplomacy too.
