It's just dinner

In what I would consider one of her best looks yet, First Lady Michelle Obama dazzled this week at the White House State Dinner in this BEAUTIFUL Carolina Herrera gown, rumored to be in the price range of $12,000, after all it's just dinner (NO - it's an event!).  The gown featured a black, hand-sewn beaded embroidery applique scallop-edged top that came to Obama's elbows. The top went over a "liberty blue" silk faille corset and long skirt with a train that billowed behind the first lady as she walked with President Barack Obama. It was matched with a black velvet belt. 

I may be a little impartial but let me publicly state that in my opinion, Michelle Obama is the first lady of ALL first ladies.  She's prim and poised, well spoken and feminine, she is . . . . . ELLE OF THE BALL.

  1. Gorgeous dress but if my tax dollars paid for it, I am not happy.

    1. The dress is absolutely stunning! Given who she is I highly doubt she had to pay for the dress, but even if so, I'm sure no tax dollars were involved. Considering our presidents of the past, we've spent on much worse.

  2. Wow! That dress is gorgeous. The top picture of the President helping her down the steps is awesome. Thank you for sharing this from all angles.
