As Michelle Obama stepped into the White House for the first time wearing a dress designed by old friend Maria Pinto on one side of the ocean, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was in Paris wearing a chic tuxedo jacket with her trademark flat pumps. (We'll ignore The Duchess of Cornwall's presence for the purpose of this story). The French First Lady has made no secret of her desire to meet Michelle in person. ‘I don't know her yet,' Carla revealed in an interview. ‘I admire the couple though and I can't wait to meet her. To see this couple go to the White House is just magnificent.' And we can't wait for that fash-off to happen either, Carla. But who'd win? Vote on yesterday's outfits!
