Queen Maxima's UN Visit Features A Michelle Obama-Inspired Dress (PHOTOS)

Michelle Obama has officially ascended to the top of the style rankings: She's now teaching queens fashion lessons.

At least, Queen Maxima seems to be taking note of our first lady. The Dutch royal turned up to 68th United Nations General Assembly in New York today sporting a black and white floral A-line dress. It was oh-so-pretty and oh-so-FLOTUS.

In fact, Mrs. O has worn quite a few similar styles, including the Prabal Gurung number she wore last Easter and while welcoming former President Bush and his wife to the White House in 2012. The color palette, the fun print and the shape were signature Michelle -- and looked just as great on the Dutch queen. (We think Maxima might have even also been inspired by the first lady's floral Tracey Reese dress.)

The bottom line is that Michelle's fashion clout knows no bounds, and the result is two very well-dressed ladies.

Here's Maxima's floral dress from today:
