Touching down in Mumbai, their first stop, Michelle Obama wore a knee-length, grey dress that perhaps was a subtle nod to the Indian kurti. While I like how she keeps it very appropriate to the country, culture, and occassion, I am disappointed by the choice of color, which is dull and washes her out. Something a little brighter would have been a nice change, however, we still have a few more days to see her sartorial choices in India.
Update: She did wear the somber dress as a tribute to the victims of the Mumbai bombing. So kudos.
Here are some other pictures of Michelle at a local kids’ school and at Humayun’s tomb in New Delhi.
