It is no secret that the US First Lady Michelle Obama is a big fan of Duro Olowu – she has stepped out rocking Duro Olowu pieces on several state and family outings – even appearing in a Duro piece on the Oprah Winfrey show –  so it was no surprise to see her rocking yet another Duro Olowu piece – a black and orange jacket from the designers Autumn 2011 collection – on her arrival at Pretoria, South Africa with daughters Sasha and Malia yesterday evening on the first leg of her goodwill tour of sub-Saharan Africa.

Michelle Obama continued her tour of South Africa today, meeting with Nelson Mandela and his wife, Graca Machel. She wore a coral silk skirt suit by Narciso Rodriguez and blue flats by Nava Zahavi. She spent the afternoon playing with children Emthonjeni Community Center.

Here is the video footage of the First Lady’s arrival in South Africa:


And here is an interview with Duro Olowu at the London presentation of his Autumn 2011 collection.

And here is to many many more Duro Olowu creations to be modelled by the First Lady! :)
