Michelle Obama hosted Queen Rania of Jordan in the Yellow Room at the White House on April 23, 2009. Michelle wore a lovely pleated taupe dress and strands of glass pearl necklaces from designer Erikson Beaman. The pearls are from their "Peace at Last" Collection. He also designs many of her lovely brooches.
Queen Rania is currently visiting the US and, yesterday, she was the keynote speaker at the 8th Annual Global Philanthropy Forum Conference in Washington D.C.
It is fast becoming obvious to me that pearls seem to be Michelle's fashion accessory. I love the way she keeps to her individual style by using unusual colors and designs so that they don't appear to staid and matronly.
