Fashion Scoops: Honoring Sui...

The Council of Fashion Designers of America isn’t the only organization tipping its hat to Anna Sui this year.

MICHELLE OBAMA’S LONDON TOUR: She may be one of the world’s most-watched women, but that didn’t stop Michelle Obama from enjoying the trappings of a typical tourist visit to London this week. Obama, who arrived in the city Monday with her daughters, Sasha and Malia, made quite a splash when the family took in Westminster Abbey on Tuesday. Wearing a layered ensemble of yellow and lilac cardigans over an embroidered dress on top of gray trousers — no doubt picked with London’s erratic summer weather in mind — Obama waved to fellow sightseers after taking a private tour of the nearly 1,000-year-old abbey with her daughters, given by the Dean of Westminster. The visit was gleefully recorded by London’s Evening Standard, which ran a picture of Sasha and Malia Obama leaving the abbey on its front page Tuesday. Meanwhile, Obama further impressed the British press with her down-to-earth credentials by partaking of dinner at a regular London pub Monday evening — albeit one located on Mount Street, in London’s posh Mayfair area. A spokeswoman for the pub, called The Audley, said Sasha and Malia ate fish and chips. And, despite reports that “Harry Potter” fans Sasha and Malia were due to take a tour of the “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” film set Tuesday, a spokeswoman for Leavesden Studios, where the film is being shot, said no visit took place or was planned.
