Royal Dresses of the Day: June 30

Everyone looks out for Michelle Obama's fashion - and rightly so, I love her take on First Lady style - but it was Princess Lalla Salma that stopped me in my tracks when the two met in Morocco.

The FLOTUS and her daughters visited Morocco this week with her Let Girls Learn initiative. Lalla Salma, wife of King Mohammed VI, greeted them on arrival.
An orange shirt dress and Valentino Rockstud shoes! She's on a one princess mission to disprove every single ridiculous "redheads shouldn't wear..." myth out there, and MORE POWER TO HER. This look is a fiery sunset, and she's pulling it off. (And to her credit, Mrs. Obama also looks incredible in that Proenza Schouler wrap dress. I do so love a modern floral.) Lalla Salma later returned to her traditional look for the dinner she hosted for the Obamas.

Also taking on the shirt dress look, in recent princess news:

Prince Albert and Princess Charlene watched St. John's Eve festivities in Monaco last week.

Once again, Charlene surprises me, going a little more retro than I would have expected. This look isn't going to move mountains or anything, but when it comes to wandering around your palace and popping out for a little fresh air, it's pretty perfectly low key.
