Michelle Obama speaks in Belfast

The First Lady wore Burberry

Michelle Obama delivered an inspirational speech to a group of schoolchildren, students and graduates in Belfast yesterday – and she did it wearing Burberry. Now that’s a First Lady.

Michelle urged an audience of 2,000 young people to step up to challenge the status quo and help to establish long-term peace in Northern Ireland at a G8 Summit meet, alongside her president husband Barack Obama.

‘We believe in each and every one of you, that is exactly why we are here,’ she said, adding that she had ‘never felt more optimistic’ about Northern Ireland’s future.


Admittedly, though, it was her hair that got many people on Twitter talking – she had trouble keeping her long side fringe out of her eyes. But who hasn't been there?
