The President and First lady kicked of their European visit in Moneygall, Ireland today. This tiny hamlet was the home of Obama's great-great-great grandfather who emigrated to the U.S. in 1850. Barack had a pint of Guinness at the local pub, Michelle, always the lady, had a half pint. Read the New York Timesarticle about his visit and watch a video clip of his speech to an ecstatic Irish crowd. He even says 'Yes We Can' in Gaelic!

Michelle wore a Marc Jacobs silk dress with a bold geometric print from his Spring 2011 collection, bright flats, and added a light trench for practicality. The Obamas cut their stay in Dublin short, taking a quick flight to London as to not risk any delays from that trouble-making Icelandic volcano.
