Lets have a look at Michelle Obama Style at the 2012 London Olympics
Michelle Obama at the Olympics
First Lady Michelle Obama brought some serious gold-medal-worthy style to the London 2012 Olympics. From her always-elegant dresses to patriotic displays of red, white, and blue, check out the FLOTUS's winning looks from the Games.
Michelle Obama in J. Mendel
The First Lady looked like royalty at a Buckingham Palace reception for the Heads of State and Government. She wore a J. Mendel Resort 2013 cap-sleeve jacket with intricate silver embroidery (which reportedly cost $6,800) over a pleated white skirt.
Now here's a powerful combination of fashion if we ever saw one. Michelle Obama in J.Mendel and Kate Middleton, Dutchess of Cambridge, in Christopher Kane. Both were simply stunning at the reception, but which of the two deserved the gold?
Well, it's official—Michelle's emsemble is fit for a queen or for, uh, meeting the Queen of England, at least.
Michelle Obama in BCBG Max Azria
Not only did the First Lady put her American pride on display while cheering on the US Swimming Team, she also sported her timeless fashion sense in a chic colorblock top by BCBG Max Azria paired with sleek black pants.
Okay, how adorable is the peek-a-boo cutout on Michelle's right shoulder? We love that the 48-year-old First Lady isn't afraid show her youthful spirit.
Bold hoop earrings and a silver cuff polished off Michelle's charming look.
Michelle Obama in Cozy-Chic Gray
Michelle Obama opted for a head-to-toe neutral ensemble with a sporty, slicked-back ponytail to support the US Men's Basketball Team in its match against France.
It's a good thing the First Lady kept it casual for the men's basketball game. Following Team USA's victory, player after player (ugh, imagine the sweat) crowded in for a big embrace—even Kobe Bryant showed Mrs. O some love!
Simple yet sophisticated jewelry added understated glamour to the FLOTUS's gray-on-gray sweater-and-tee combination.
Michelle Obama in Patriotic Colors
Michelle Obama paired a retro-print flag-inspired blazer with a bright red peplum top and fitted black pants to greet Team USA before the Olympic opening ceremony.
The First Lady shed her patriotic blazer to show off her fit-and-flare peplum hiding beneath the layer. Between the square-neck top and her sunny smile, she sure was, well, peppy while greeting the US Women's Basketball Team.

Michelle Obama in Athleticwear
Joined by an incredibly dapper David Beckham—um, jealous!—at the Let's Move London event before the opening ceremony, Michelle embodied the Olympic spirit in a sporty shirt, cropped white pants, and metallic sneakers.
Whoa, with kicks like that—we mean her actual kick, but those silver sneaks are pretty snazzy, too—we think the First Lady should have tried out for the US Soccer Team. Right?
Michelle Obama in Neon Yellow
Once the leading lady finally took her seat at the opening ceremony, she threw on this electric yellow blazer, ensuring all eyes stayed on her as the action unfolded in the stadium.
