First Lady Earns High Marks in Tom Ford at Buckingham Palace

First Lady Michelle Obama has done a diplomatic job of wearing a fleet of British designers during her UK visit, from a colorful Preen suit to a Barbara Tfank ensemble at her first meeting with the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The Tom Ford gown she wore on her visit to Buckingham Palace, however, has been the sartorial stand-out of her entire UK trip thus far. A vision in ivory silk georgette, the dress features an incredibly flattering cross-cross effect at the waist, and the long white gloves are a wonderfully formal way to top off the look.

Ford's collections have become the most exclusive of exclusives, previewed only to an elite few insiders, and he also has a UK connection: The designer is planning to showcase his next collection in London for a select few editors.
