This picture shows a much more conservative Michelle Obama. Often drawing criticism for bearing her arms and bold fashion statements, Mrs. O opted for all black Moschino for her meeting with the Pope. She made waves for breaking protocol by embracing Queen Elizabeth II (who welcomed the embrace). The Vatican called for a much more somber tone.
