As the United States of America’s First Couple – The Obamas made their first official presidential visit to Africa. Expectations were high and many questions were looming. For fashionistas and designers, the question was ‘Would Mrs. O rock any designs from our African designers?‘. We’re sad to report that the answer was a resounding NO. What did she wear? Find out below.  So what do you think. Should Mrs. Obama have shown some support for the African fashion industry and worn something ‘African’?

    She’s free to wear whatever she wants so far its not considered disrespectful to the host country.

    That little girl is soo yummy!

    I personally am sick of hearing what Michelle Obama is wearing, i’d rather hear about her pet projects as a first lady and not the cost of a patent leather clutch or that she’s supporting an Asian designer and black designers are miffed. A whole Harvard Law degree and people are still more interested in her panties than what she brings to the table, women don suffer in this life.

    I agree with Kpakpando. Why have we reduced this great woman to “what she wears”? Michelle Obama has a mind. Lets talk about that .. her projects her position on issues, and not nonsense things like her clothes.

    You are playing from the handbook of people who wish to discredit her achievements.

    Wow!! I never knew that she was this fabulous!! Her style – if truly her style is flawless – and her daughters are gorgeous too.

    But like someone else said, we should focus on her work and not the clothes she wears, but a compliment is a compliment nonetheless :).

    I dont believe Bella’s Q is so, Bella is only taking a twist on what the rest of the media world is asking “What is SHE wearing?”. It is up to the reader to say other questions maybe asked, without degrading the reporter’s efforts.

    She dint have to rock African prints. I love her style, it’s so simple and humble.

    I like what she wore, but don’t particularly care for her hairstyle. She is doing great things and both her daughters are cute.
