The fashion-conscious first lady activated her very own Instagram account under the handle @michelleobama and has already captured in an array of lust-worthy outfits.

Oscar de la Renta took to Mexico City late last week for a lavish gala thrown as part of Nextelâ€™s ongoing series of catwalk and shindig extravaganzas.

The cityâ€™s affinity for de la Renta certainly isnâ€™t a one-way streetâ€”apparently, the dignified and dapper designerâ€™s interest was piqued many years prior. â€œA long time ago, I lost my heart in Mexico and I am very happy to be here again,â€ de la Renta exclaimed during a press conference at the Four Seasons (the designerâ€™s home away from home for his Mexico City jag).

To wear Jason Wu (again) or not to wear Jason Wu. That was the question on Michelle Obama’s mind pre-inauguration. In 2009, the First Lady wore a white, one-shoulder gown by Wu to the Inaugural Ball, catapulting the designer to fashion stardom. Four years later, Wu again worked closely with Mrs. Obama’s team, yet there was no confirmation as to whether or not she’d remain loyal.
