The Obamas Give Us a Lesson in Power Couple Dressing – Marjon Carlos for


Were Michelle and Barack Obama conspiring to save the world today as they sat down for a power lunch with Bono? Who’s to say…But what we do know is that the former first couple looked like they meant business as they exited Upland restaurant in New York. Sheathed in his-and-hers business pantsuits, the expertly tailored threads lent the meal a bit more of an official tone.

Michelle Obama’s mid-length gray trench coat was layered over a white and black silk button-down. Gone were her trademark pencil skirts; instead, she took a page from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, zipping into a pair of no-nonsense black trousers. While the look was a bit more subdued for the normally splashy dresser, Obama held on to a vestige of her fashion consciousness with her Alexander Wang Attica tote.

Barack Obama followed in his wife’s footsteps, buttoning into a natty black two-piece and ditching the requisite tie from his White House days. Leaving the top two buttons of his crisp white oxford shirt open, the former president seemed to be easing back into public life with a more relaxed but still polished air. Eager and emotional fans gathered on the street to catch a glimpse of the power couple as they made their fashionable exit.

The near-rapture feeling of Billy Eichner who took above picture which has been used by several outlets and shared on Twitter was simply captioned –

I’m just going to stare at this photo all weekend because it makes me irrationally happy

Angelica Florio’s  “The Obamas went out for lunch in NYC, and people lost their GD minds” seems to capture the feelings of millions of still-adoring Obama fans:

It takes a lot to upstage 22-time Grammy Award-winning musician and U2 frontman Bono, but it happened on Friday — all because he went out to lunch with Barack and Michelle Obama in New York City.

Since leaving office in January, Barack Obama has become the subject of a Where’s Waldo-type hunt, and each new post-presidency Obama sighting elicits a barrage of “we miss you” tweets. So it won’t come as a surprise that most people who saw Barack and Michelle in NYC with an actual rockstar on Friday were screaming praises to the Obamas as if they’d just released a number one album.

There are fans’ videos, including a heartbeat-stopping shot by a fan who captioned her pix –

“I’m dying. I’m dead. PRESIDENT OBAMA is at lunch w us. We all clapped and cried.”
