Just one day after Carolina Herrera showed a collection inspired by former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, current First Lady Michelle Obama chose one of her designs to wear to the Official State Dinner Tuesday night in Washington D.C., where she and President Obama welcomed controversial French President Francois Hollande.
A press release describes the outfit as a "black hand-sewn beaded embroidery appliqué scallop-edged top over a liberty blue silk faille corset with a wide black velvet belt detail and liberty blue silk faille inverted pleat long skirt and train." Liberty blue by an American designer. How nice.
She styled the voluminous gown with blue statement earrings by Sutra and what looks to be sort of a take on Farrah Fawcett hair? We think?
It's definitely a lewk. And we think the color is super pretty, and like how the somewhat risqué cleavage is balanced out with longish sleeves.
What do you think of Obama's patriotic choice?
