While the President played golf in California, the First Lady, her daughters Sasha and Malia, and her mother Marian Robinson, took
a week-long European press tour, traveling from 10 Downing Street to Venice, visiting with Prince Harry in London and students in
Italy, and showing off a string of sophisticated summer looks.
In London, Mrs. Obama celebrated a trio of British designers:
Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, Mary Katrantzou and Christopher Kane. She touched down in Italy wearing a printed dress by Duro Olowu, later showing off colorful looks by Missoni and Michale Kors. Meanwhile, the girls wore simple summer dresses and this summer's number one trend: gladiator sandals.
