Michelle Obama kicked off Day 2 of her trip to South Africa in one of the biggest fashion trends of the moment - colour blocking. Her turquoise, beige and pale lemon two-piece outfit was the choice for her address to the Young African Women Leaders Forum at the Regina Mundi Church in Soweto, as well as her tribute laid at the Hector Pieterson memorial.
In the afternoon they went to a project at the Vhuthilo Community Centre, where Mrs Obama was seen getting her hands dirty as dhe gardened up a storm, while others painted and sorted and hammered. What is an appropriate outfit for this kind of occasion? Well, an all-black ensemble, with a belted jacket and peplum frill.
