FLOTUS IN SEASON: After sharing the ins and outs of her “Let Girls Learn” initiative with Akin Abe, the wife of Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Michelle Obama touched down in Cambodia Friday to spread the word with another fellow First Lady Bun Rany. FLOTUS stepped off Air Force One wearing a Carolina Herrera sleeveless silk printed dress in a red carnation print from the designer’s spring collection.
Obama is in the midst of a five-day tour to bolster the initiative which aims to help educate the estimated 62 million girls who do not attend school in 11 countries targeted by the administration. A Princeton and Harvard Law alum, the First Lady has repeatedly emphasized the value of her own education when speaking publicly during President Obama’s tenure. Having started and run her own company for more than three decades, the self-taught Herrera, a mother of four daughters, certainly can appreciate the First Lady’s efforts to try to better the lives of other girls through learning and perseverance.
