First Lady Michelle Obama’s posh shoes will be tough to fill once a new leading political figure enters the White House in 2017. On Wednesday, the mother of two arrived at Argentina’s Ministro Pistarini International Airport in Ezeiza wearing a dress that speaks to her risk-taking approach to fashion, one that celebrates designers from all over.

With President Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha by her side, she stepped off of Air Force One in a long-sleeve purple Narciso Rodriguez dress that resembled a sleeveless version the American designer sent down his spring 2016 runway, WWD confirms. For her early morning arrival, Obama rocked a pair of pointed-toe pumps that let the statement frock and its orange-hued, circular graphic do the talking. The family looked picture-perfect, but it’s the First Lady's polished ensemble that proved she has an eye for balancing diplomatic style with boundary-pushing pieces.

She reportedly met with students of the Metropolitan Design Center in Barracas, a move in support of her Let Girls Learnprogram. As for whether or not we expect to see her deliver more color, let her recent trip to Cuba serve as a hopeful indicator of what's to come.
