MICHELLE, MA BELLE: Michelle Obama sure knows how to be a bona fide fashion diplomat. On the first official presidential visit to the Vatican last week, the First Lady chose to wear a mix of Italian and American clothes to meet Pope Benedict XVI. Continuing her love affair with Michael Kors, she donned the designer’s black wool crepe coat. The rest, however, was all Moschino, from the black organza bow top and the black crepe skirt to the striking black silk Moschino veil.

On her extended European trip, Obama rotated her group of core American regulars, wearing pieces from the likes of Kors, Narciso Rodriguez and Jason Wu.

She was back in Kors for the first family’s arrival in Ghana, where she wore the designer’s black square neck sheath dress.
