Michelle Obama stuns in eye-popping hot pink pants suit during solo night out in NYC

Michelle Obama stunned in an eye-popping hot pink pants suit during a solo night out in New York City on Thursday evening – after her husband was spotted in Los Angeles spending time with their daughters.

The former first lady, 58, was spotted arriving to The Mark Hotel, located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, for the Justice Albie Awards afterparty, during which she donned a pair of bright pink trousers, as well as a matching blouse and jacket.

The mother-of-two paired the look with silver, strappy stilettos – with diamonds encrusted into the heel – and a similarly-colored clutch.

The Justice Albie Awards, which took place at the New York Public Library on Thursday night, was created by George and Amal Clooney through their Clooney Foundation for Justice.

The event honored ‘journalists, human rights leaders and other global justice defenders who “are at great risk for what they do,”‘ according to its website. 

It is named after Albie Sachs, a South African lawyer and judge who was imprisoned for his fight against apartheid.

It’s unclear if Michelle attended the awards show or if she just came to the afterparty. Other attendees included George and Amal, Julia Roberts, Cindy Crawford and Randy Gerber, Dua Lipa, Drew Barrymore, Jodie Turner-Smith, Leonardo DiCaprio’s ex-girlfriend Camila Morrone, Phoebe Dynevor, Zoey Dutch, Gemma Chan, Lori Harvey, and British makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury.

The 58-year-old appears to be enjoying the Big Apple as her husband, former President Barack Obama, spent time with their daughters on the West Coast.

Barack, 61, was spotted enjoying a swanky dinner in Los Angeles, California, with Malia, 24, and Sasha, 21, last weekend – but it’s not known whether or not he is still there.

The trio were pictured visiting the pricey sushi restaurant Hamasaku, where eight-piece sushi rolls cost $50 and specialty rolls go for more than $20 each. 

Hamasaku boasts a fusion of traditional Japanese sushi with a taste of California, and features a plethora of dishes containing salmon, lobster, crab, tuna, yellowtail and other tasty seafood. 

While Barack dined with his daughters, Michelle was in Seneca Falls, New York, being inducted in the National Women’s Hall of Fame. She was also seen entering the Mark hotel on Wednesday in a chic purple outfit.

Both Sasha and Malia are currently living in Los Angeles, with Malia – who is working as a screenwriter on Donald Glover’s upcoming Amazon show – moving there last year, after graduating from Harvard.

In March, Donald revealed that he had given the 24-year-old her first job as a writer on his new series, which is reportedly about ‘a Beyoncé-type character,’ with the actor calling her ‘amazingly talented’ and ‘really focused.’ 

‘She’s just like, an amazingly talented person,’ Donald, 38, who is also known by his stage name Childish Gambino, told Vanity Fair at the time. ‘She’s really focused, and she’s working really hard.’ 

He did not share how Malia – who previously interned on Lena Dunham’s HBO series Girls in 2015 and at The Weinstein Company in 2017 – landed the job after she graduated from college but he added that he believed she has a promising future in the industry. 

As for Sasha, she is also building her own life in Los Angeles. The 21-year-old is studying at the University of Southern California, where she just began her final year, after transferring from the University of Michigan.
