Michelle Obama is making fashion waves across the pond.
The former first lady wore a pink suit covered in crystal embellishments in Copenhagen, Denmark, on Tuesday during the first stop on her European book tour for “Becoming.”
Stine Goya, a Copenhagen-based designer, made Obama’s suit.
“We’re beyond proud to have designed this custom made & hand embellished suit to the one and only Michelle Obama,” Goya’s Instagram caption read, alongside a photo of the former first lady in the piece.
It’s clear Obama is becoming attached to chic paitsuits, as she wore yet another one with a crystal collar by Acne on Wednesday. The author paired the suit with embellished high heels for her book tour stop in Stockholm.
Obama’s U.S.-based book tour was equally fashionable.
She wore a pair of show-stopping $3,900 Balenciaga boots with a bright yellow dress from the label’s spring/summer 2019 collection at her Barclays Center appearance in Brooklyn, New York, in December.
It’s safe to say the outfit was Carrie Bradshaw-approved, as actress Sarah Jessica Parker moderated the panel.
In “Becoming,” Obama describes thinking about every detail of her outfits and what they conveyed during her husband’s first presidential campaign and later, his presidency and second campaign.
“It was a thin line to walk. I was supposed to stand out without overshadowing others, to blend in but not fade away,” Obama wrote, adding that she worked on her fashion choices with Meredith Koop, who later became wardrobe stylist to the first lady.
“As a black woman, too, I knew I’d be criticized if I was perceived as being showy and high-end, and I’d also be criticized if I was too casual,” she said.
“So I mixed it up. I’d match a Michael Kors skirt with a T-shirt from Gap. I wore something from Target one day and Diane von Furstenberg the next.”
