The former FLOTUS spent some time with Queen Letizia of Spain. Both ladies were captures as they took a walk in the garden of Zarzuela Palace on June 30, 2016, in Madrid.

The visit was part of a tour to promote the "Let Girls Learn" initiative, a project Michelle started in 2015. The aim of the project was to promote education for young girls around the world.

Michelle picked a white midi dress reportedly by the Delpozo brand.

This fresh summer look also featured a kind of cape-effect cut-out back that showed off a little skin. Evidently, Michelle wasn't afraid of embracing her feminity even in an official capacity.

She completed her dress with a pair of metallic sandals that made her look fantastic. Michelle was stunning and elegant during the visit.

Not everyone agreed that this was a perfect outfit for Michelle, though. While sharing her opinion on New My Royals, one internet user, LilyBart commented:

That white dress makes Mrs. Obama look large. She needs to get a better stylist.

Another commenter, Lizzie, agreed with her saying that, even though Michelle couldn't be considered petite, the dress didn't do much for her.

She is a large woman - at least compared to Letitia - and it is true that the dress is not flattering on her, it does make her look larger than she is.

LilyBart added that the problem wasn't in Michelle's body:

No, she's in fine shape - its the dress that was a mistake.

Another commenter agreed:

I also agree, there is nothing wrong with M. O.'s body but it's an ill choice of dress that makes her look heavy. I really don't understand why would this be body shaming. It's just that she doesn't always hit the best notes - it happens to all of us. This is just not the kind of dress she looks the best in.

From these commenters' perspective, the gown wasn't the best choice for Michelle. But love it or hate it, you have to agree that Michelle looked impressively.
