Michelle Obama Wears Sutra Earrings During State Dinner for Francois Hollande
It’s the ultimate celebrity endorsement. Michelle Obama wore a pair Sutra blue sapphire and diamondearrings to an official state dinner Tuesday in honor of French President Francois Hollande.
It’s not the first time the first lady wore Sutra jewelry. She has been wearing Sutra pieces at formal gatherings since at least 2010. Only two years after the company was founded by designer Arpita Navlakha.
The first lady wore the earrings with a blue Carolina Herrera gown.
