Who Wore What: Michelle Obama in Duro Olowu

Late last year, we were quick to spot Michelle Obama in a floaty Duro Olowu dress (top right). Far from being an isolated occurrence, it turns out Mrs O has been wearing Duro Olowu since 2008 (at leaast) when she addressed an Obama rally in a Spring 2008 green safari jacket (below) - a jacket she has worn at least twice since then.

In 2010,  Michelle chose a piece from Duro Olowu's spring 2010 collection for her Let's Move PSA:

 A few days ago, yet another Duro Olowu Spring 2010 piece (complete with adinkra symbols like in the piece above) made an appearance:

This piece currently retails for $880 at Couture Lab.

 Which of these four Duro moments is your favourite? And which of these do you suppose'll happen first - Michelle Obama in Jewel by Lisa or an African First Lady who does for African Fashion what Michelle Obama does for American Fashion?
