For Sunday’s Kennedy Center Honors Gala (which this year honored entertainers Billy Joel, Herbie Hancock, Shirley MacLaine and more), Mrs. Obama chose a stunning Grecian-style, silk chiffon Marchesa gown in the brilliant jewel tone. The hand-draped dress had a fitted bodice and off-the-shoulder straps, just in case you needed reminding that your arms will never be as toned and perfect as the First Lady’s. EVER.
The FLOTUS accessorized with a scalloped diamond choker, ultra sparkly mini box clutch, and of course, the super-smiley President on her arm (too much awww to handle). She topped off the glam look with a super-voluminous, center-parted ‘do that was a little too Oprah for our taste if we’re being entirely honest — but considering she’s generally on a Mary Poppins level of perfection, we’ll let it slide this time. And anyway, the higher the hair, the closer to Beyoncé, right?
