The meeting of first lady fashion forces Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and Michelle Obama has been one of the most highly anticipated get-togethers of the Obamas' European trip this week.

Bruni-Sarkozy was interviewed inside the Michelle Obama issue of Vogue in March, telling the magazine that she hates makeup, clothes and jewelry. Nevertheless, as a former supermodel she's become an international fashion icon, a role her American counterpart is quickly stepping into.

After the election in November, Bruni told David Letterman "France is thrilled, delighted. I think the whole world is delighted."

On Friday, the two women and their husbands finally met in Strasbourg, France.

The first ladies' outfits complemented each other, and each stuck to their favorite designer. Michelle wore a poppy printed Thakoon coat over a matching pink dress, while Carla wore a belted Dior trench in gray suede. Both coats had a bow on the neck and fell just below the knee.

Michelle wore black kitten heels while Carla went for Dior flats.
