(Newser) – Michelle, Malia, and Sasha Obama didn't let an 11-hour flight stop them from looking stylish as they arrived in Moscow yesterday, the New York Daily News reports. Michelle, who boarded Air Force One in a floral frock by Talbots, arrived in a peach-colored dress by Narcisco Rodriguez, while the girls donned matching khaki-colored trench coats from their perennial fave J. Crew.

President Dmitry Medvedev's wife, Svetlana, took the Obama women for tea in the Winter Garden ahead of a tour of the Kremlin's historical treasures. Michelle later changed into a white shirt and black slacks for a stroll around the Medvedevs' residence outside Moscow. The two first ladies are visiting a school for orphans and a nurses' training college today.
