Also couple more pictures of the meeting from this behind the scenes gallery with Time magazine photographer Callie Shell.

The gallery also includes priceless picture. (We knew she could dance - from the clip at Ellen's show pre-election. ;))

Also this picture from the gallery. Including it here because I thought of a wisecrack. :)

A meeting like this would have made Sarah Palin say "I can see a Russian across the table." :)

Update: Time magazine has a few other galleries covering the Obamas in Europe
 
Fashion Summit, Michelle Obama in Europe

The First Lady proves she knows how to get a lot of mileage out of a few chic pieces.
