First Ladies' fashion face-off
by Gan Tian

After a long journey from Washington, US first lady Michelle Obama landed in Beijing on Thursday evening, starting her long-awaited trip to China with a big smile and a wave.

Obama wore a long-sleeved leather-and-suede patchwork Derek Lam dress, according to reports.

She stepped out of the plane with her mother and two teenager daughters, as dozens of reporters that had waited in the airport for hours incessantly clicked their camera shutters.

Though nobody from the delegation spoke to the media, the first lady's brief debut spread quickly on Chinese media and micro blogs, where users discussed what she would wear and eat, and how she will interact with Chinese first lady Peng Liyuan.

Invited by Peng, the First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS) is visiting China with her daughters this week.

The two ladies will definitely attract attention in terms of fashion.

Peng turned the world onto Chinese designer Ma Ke and the label Exception de Mixmind, while Mrs Obama has made famous the American designer Jason Wu, along with Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren.

Let us review some of the attractive moments the two First Ladies have had under the public eye.
