BEIJING—As embarked on his first trip overseas as China's president, back home much of the attention was on the new first lady, Peng Liyuan, with Chinese social media buzzing about the fashionable navy blue outfit she wore stepping off the plane in Russia and welcoming the international debut of her new role as a clear departure from her predecessors' low profile.
—Xi Jinping

Comments on the fashion sense of Ms. Peng, a famous folk singer, evoked the fuss over Michelle Obama in 2008 and built on expectations by many political analysts and diplomats that Ms. Peng will bolster and soften her husband's public image by becoming the first wife of a Communist Chinese leader to play a role similar to that of a U.S. first lady.
