Japan’s Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie Abe are on a two-day visit to India in an effort to strengthen the bond between the two countries. The State guests arrived in Ahmedabad on Wednesday and while the whole nation got excited about the coming of the first bullet train in India between Mumbai and Ahmedabad, we got our eyes on the first lady of Japan, Akie Abe. From being a supportive wife who was always in the background, Akie Abe now has an identity of her own. Her charming personality and liberal mindset perfectly balance the conservative Prime Minister. She is an outgoing personality who often appears for interviews and on magazines and accompanies her husband all around the world.
Another interesting thing about her that really caught our attention was how graceful she looked at the time she arrived at the airport. Later she changed into a salwar kameez and she carried it off like she has been doing this all her life. This made us notice her fashion choices in the past and here’s the verdict- Akie Abe is a fashionista! From the White House parties to airport looks, from formals to designer gowns, each one of her avatars is equally striking, captivating and oh-so-elegant. In case you are curious and need proof, here are some pictures from her previous appearances and visits.
We have been so busy admiring Michelle Obama as the best dressed first lady ever (which she is), we might have ignored this potential competition. Akie Abie carries herself with so much grace and poise that we just can’t stop admiring her. She clearly stands out from the outdated versions of first ladies where they were just supposed to support their husband and stay out of public eye. This one comes out, stands shoulder to shoulder with Prime Minister Abe and slays at the same time.
P.S. We are eagerly waiting to see her look from Day-2 in India!
