Michelle Obama's wearing Thakoon to the UK

The First Lady isn't due to land here until 8pm this evening, but that doesn't mean we can't take a sneaky peek at what she was wearing when she boarded the plane this morning! The pictures show Mrs O in a classic, round-neck, monochrome tweed coat with black trim and a pair of £310 Jimmy Choo 'Jade' heels. Check back here later for a designer update on the coat, but in the meantime we can't help but wonder if she'll be doing a quick change of outfit in the Air Force One loos before she lands here in the UK!

UPDATE: Michelle wore a Thakoon custom ivory tulle tweed coat with grosgrain piping. Available by special order at Ikram in Chicago - obviously!

UPDATE 2: She has changed for arrival in London! In the quick glimpse we got, between her exit from Air Force One and entry into a helicopter, it looked like a yellow dress under a belted black shawl collar coat. Check back tomorrow for designer update.
