Barack Obama New York, May 6 (ANI): US First Lady Michelle Obama has recycled a dress she wore during President Barack Obama’s first day in office, for a meet-and-greet at the U.S. mission to the UN on May 5.

Michelle picked the flowered Tracy Feith frock for the meet, and, in the evening, she changed into city-perfect cocktail attire, a stunning floor-length navy blue gown from high-end French designer Azzedine Alaia.

The gown was layered with a corset from her Chicago favourite, Peter Soronen - to deliver a keynote address at the Time 100 Most Influential People Awards at Time Warner Center.

At the podium, Obama’s voice quivered with emotion as she told the crowd she never imagined she’d be a role model for girls around the globe.

“Girls who possibly look at me and see something more for themselves, more than society expects of them. Girls who now think, maybe just maybe, anything is possible,” the New York Daily News quoted her as saying.

“As global leaders, let’s not underestimate the power each of us has to change the world for someone - and let’s not be afraid to try,” she added. (ANI)
