Michelle Obama Wears Naeem Khan At State Dinner


Last week's first state dinner at the White House has gathered much attention because of the "party crashing couple," but what drew my interest was the wonderfully appropriate choice of outfit by Michelle Obama. Although I am not always on the same fashion page as the First Lady I love that she sticks to her signature style and I am loving this elegant gown. The gleaming silver-sequined, cream-colored gown she wore last Tuesday night (Nov. 24th) was custom-made by Naeem Khan, an Indian-born U.S. designer. Fitting since the the guests of honor at the dinner were Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife, Gursharan Kaur.

The strapless silhouette with the beads forming an abstract floral pattern was stunning all by itself but the complimenting wrap, stack of bangle bracelets on her wrist and dangling earrings finished the look perfectly. 

In an interview with CNN's Larry King, Khan said he wanted to dress Michelle Obama in something "Indian, chic, simple but very glamorous".
He went on to say, "For me to be part of this historic occasion, being Indian, it is beyond amazing. It is an incredible moment for me." I have to agree. My congratulations to both Khan and Obama for the stunning look.
