We love an unlikely or surprising friendship especially when a celeb we know and love pops into a picture with another one of our style crushes (Alexa Chung and Lana Del Rey anyone?!). But we were not at all prepared for the latest pairing to cross our radar when Michelle Obama swapped the east coast for the west coast to kick off a two-day fundraising tour in LA at the very home of, wait for it, Gwen Stefani!
The No Doubt singer threw open the door to her pad in Beverly Hills on Sunday for a day of family fun which was attended by her band-mates, Nicole Richie and Joel Madden, actress Alyson Hannigan and of course, MObama herself.
Gwen played the dutiful hostess in style wearing a bright pink peplum top over matching skinny trousers with a pair of black spike heels. FLOTUS looked her usual uber-chic self in a sleeveless navy dress which she wore with sandals with a silver detailing.
It was certainly not a case of ‘Don’t Speak’ as Michelle treated guests, who paid upwards of $2,500 per family of four to attend, to a rousing speech in support of her husband’s re-election campaign where she said, ‘He’s not Spider-man. He’s not a superhero. He’s a human, so we need your help.’
That Barack is one lucky guy! And so is Gwen to have such a fashion-forward gal pal. Let’s face it, who doesn’t want to see Mrs O rocking a piece or two from the Gwen’s L.A.M.B. label? She might have reservations about pulling it off but we say, ‘Yes she can!’
