First Lady Michelle Obama was a crowd pleaser this past week during the State Dinner in Washington, thanks to her everlasting and flawless fashion sense.
Mrs. Obama wore a beautiful shimmering one-shoulder cobalt blue gown, made of three layers of chiffon, designed by up-comer American designer Peter Soronen. (This is the fourth gown by Soronen designed for Mrs. O: She wore his sparkling pewter gown at the White House’s annual Governors’ Ball, a lavender chiffon gown worn at the Kennedy Center Honors, and a simple black gown debuted at the Time 100 Awards).
“I love the structured bodice that I do for her. I put it in a lot of dresses,” Soronen told the AP. “And then I drape and pin and stitch all that lightweight chiffon; I love that look on her.”
The First Lady accessorized her look with platinum diamond and sapphire earrings and pewter studded strappy sandals. She also fashioned a bejeweled belt that is sure to be a trend to continue, with Sex And The City 2 stealing the style for its 80s-flashback and Dubai-inspired costumes.
Mrs. Obama’s curly hair-do for the evening also had the fashionistas ablaze. “This is surely the biggest we’ve seen her hair in some time,” New York Magazine reports.
The celebrity guest list included Beyonce (who performed), Eva Longoria-Parker, Whoopi Goldberg, talk show host George Lopez, Oprah’s BFF Gayle King, and Olympic speed-skater Shani Davis.
