The photos only offered us a glimpse. But it was all we needed in order to know that Michelle Obama wore something special to the Governors' Dinner at the White House last night.
Forget the Oscars red carpet, the First Lady's asymmetric gown gave the A-list a serious run for their money.
The pale, cream-coloured gown had a crystal-embellished bodice in a design of leaves and flowers, and a chiffon bow at the shoulder.

U.S. first lady Michelle Obama (L) applauds as she sits with Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell (R) during remarks before a National Governors Association dinner at the White House in Washington, February 26, 2012. McDonnell is the current chairman of the Republican Governors Association.
Heres what the governors got:
Bread and butter
Ribeye steak 12 oz
Crab mac and cheese
Pear tart with ice cream
Based on conservative estimates of caloric totals for each of the items that found their way to the governors plates, and assuming consumption of a single glass of wine from the bottles that were placed on the tables, the total intake amounted to about 2,250 calories.

And the rest of us get tofu and Spam.
Michelle Antoinette shouldn’t have to hang out with fat riff raff. She shouldn’t have to hang out with this riff raff at all, but if she must, at least they should try to slim down with a 2000 calorie dinner. She deserves that much.
The phrase “lipstick on a pig” comes to mind...
fancy marxist guerrillas
Mittens on line one!
WASHINGTON, DC - FEBRUARY 27: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie looks at his email while First Lady Michelle Obama during a meeting of the National Governors Association in the State Dining Room of the White House February 27, 2012 in Washington, DC. The governors will conclude their three-day winter meeting today.
First time I’ve seen this wig. It needs a polecat stripe down the side, doesn’t it?
Putting lipstick on a pig doesn't help things either.
White wine with a rib eye?
GAUCHE. 1. a: lacking social experience or grace.
Way too much skin showing for a first lady.
Just my stuffy opinion.
No Wagyu beef?
Pretty dress, it reminds me a little of an Easter basket. Her under-bite is worse than my Boxers.
Nobodys said for sure yet who designed the number, but many are speculating that its by Jenny Packham.
Michelle last night: Where’s my wagyu beef at?
let them (the Governors) eat cake
especially that fat guy Christie.
I have a headache.
michelle last night
I wonder whether she felt ANY pride in her country last night?
I don’t expect any different. The Obamss have less class than the Beverly Hillbillies.
She’s overdone, trying too hard—as usual.
It’s hard when you’re butt ass ooooogly like phat ass mabelle michelle, to appear attractive in anything, no matter how much the fawning media trys to play it up. If this was a conservative white Republican first lady wearing the same rags as moooochelle, the media would be screaming & howling with scorn & contempt for the flea market outfits favored by phatass mabelle michelle. Plus she is back to her angry looking scowl. As much as I hate 0dumb0sh_t, it must be like hell living with that perpetually angry beeeeeotch!
Can anyone find a full length photo?
This just does not show me the total picture.
Was she overdressed for the event by comparison?
She’s one angry, mean spirited, America hating woman.
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice, shame on me.
And they raised holy hell about the price of Sarah Palin’s wardrobe during the ‘08 campaign!
I don’t know who designed this dress, but that sheer deal with the bow on top just doesn’t work with the glitter. It just doesn’t.
I know it’s trendy, but what is the deal with mac and cheese being at a state dinner?
As usual- stripped down.
Mo, nobody wants to look at your greasy skin.
Try to have just a little respect for the position you hold.
You are a stain on American history.
With shoulders like hers....that dress is NOT flattering...it’s pretty, but not on her body type...IMHO.
She is one, sour biOtch. She is ugly and bitter inside out. Can she EVEN exude genuine happiness at all??????
That is one TAINTED soul.
LOL Well, that isn’t as bad as that bedspread she wore to the inaugural ball. :)
Without seeing the entire dress, it’s difficult to assess whether it’s a bit over the top but knowing her fashion sense I suspect it is. Parties and vacations seem to be all these two do so well and January cannot come early enough for me and my pocketbook.
It appears that she’s angrily berating those people, and with those shoulders, that bow looks ridiculous.
When I saw that foto that was the exact image that came to my mind. I was hoping someone would post it.
It was a formal, black tie White House supper, official White House china and all (the table is also set formally). She was not overdressed. Since she was the hostess of the party, she sets the dress, and everyone else is judged accordingly.
I actually think the dress is beautiful. (for once!)
A white wine can be perfectly acceptable, only true wine snobs stick to the "rules" of color anymore.
It is also not uncommon to match the wine with the side dishes or the sauce that is served with the meat.
The creamed spinich and crab mac 'n cheese may have had something to do with the wine selection.
Why did you feel the need to give us a definition of gauche? I find the folks here quite knowledgable.
i only like red wine, so i order it with salmon, rules and gaucheness be damned! : ) i also agree the dress is beautiful. and that is a rarity with her taste.
The dress is gorgeous. She wore another gown in that shade at a state function and it was also very pretty.
The inspiration for her gown:
LOL , a gift basket! That is exactly what I thought of when I saw the dress. And Michelle certainly is no “gift basket!”
I don't care if Michelle has ever, or does ever have pride in her country.
The important fact is that most of her country has no pride in her.
one-shoulder floral beaded metallic sequin gown by Naeem Khan best guess, 5-7000.00 at least.
