After bringing her Let Girls Learn initiative to Europe last summer, Michelle Obama is continuing to draw attention to adolescent education. On Monday, the first lady, who brought along her daughters, Sasha, 15, and Malia, 17, and mother Marian Robinson, landed in Libera. Following the announcement that the United States would be providing $27 million in aid for the expansion of the Let Girls Learn Peace Corps program in the country as well as meeting with Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the first elected female head of state in Africa, the Obamas moved on to Morocco.

Michelle Obama wears Carolina Herrera for the Pope’s visit. Photo: Getty Pope Francis’s touch down in Washington, D.C. may have been the biggest thing in the news Tuesday evening, but personally, I couldn’t take my eyes off off Michelle Obama, and the flaw-free outfit she’d chosen to wear for the highly photo-documented occasion. To greet the Pope at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland, Obama, joined by her husband, Barack, and daughters, Malia and Sasha, dressed as appropriately and as lovely as we’ve come to expect. Her dress, by devout Catholic designer Carolina Herrera, was a baby blue, fit-and-flare, wool crepe number, with short sleeves, a ‘60s-esque high cowl neck, and matching skinny belt.
