Mrs O – What She Wore (Botswana)

Mrs O & entourage arrive in Gaborone, Botswana yesterday for the next leg of her African tour.

She wore a red and black palette, pairing a red pant suit with a woven belt at the waist.

The US First Lady changed into a Rachel Roy Sable Leather Ribbed Knit Jacket & slacks to paint a mural at the Botswana-Baylor Adolescent Center.

Mrs O left Johannesburg for Cape Town yesterday. She visited the University of Cape Town where she answered students’ questions. She then paid a visit to the District 6 Museum.

On a fashion note, Mrs O paired navy trousers and a printed top Duro Olowu top with a Reed Krakoff blazer. She accessorized her ensemble du jour with Nava Zahavi earrings.

This is her 9th piece from the Nigerian-born, London based designer. I admire her ability to wear African design prints without looking too “I-Am-In-Africa-So-Let-Me-Dress-African.” Bravo.

Below are some more occasions where Mrs O wore Duro Olowu this year. He has been her “go-to” designer for quite some time now. She didn’t just start wearing an African designer because she was coming to the “Mother Land.”
