LONDON - On July 27th, 2012, Mrs. Obama was in London to attend opening ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games.
In a Heads of State dinner with Queen Elizabeth and Kate Middleton at Buckingham Palace, all eyes were on the First Lady.
First Lady Michelle Obama's legacy as a fashion icon is built on her ability to mix and match styles from various designers with diverse backgrounds. Some of her favorite designers have been Jason Wu, Michael Kors and Narciso Rodriguez.
This time, the first lady chose earrings from local L.A. designer Josef Arzili of Azaara.com. Mrs. Obama's choice was 'the Vintage Glamour Earrings' by Azaara. These gorgeous earrings are rhodium plated and feature rock crystals.
Azaara is a Los Angeles based designer line that has quickly developed a religious following amongst celebrities and high profile clientele. Josef Arzili's distinctive jewelry has been worn by the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Caroline Kennedy, Taylor Swift, and Rihanna.
"I have always admired her sense of style and I am honored that she would choose to wear one of my pieces at such an important event," stated Josef Arzili.
