The first lady chose a dramatic Carolina Herrera ball gown with a voluminous skirt and lace-overlay top. The blue and black gown is the first dress with sleeves Obama has worn to a state dinner. Previously she donned one-shouldered pieces from Peter Soronen and Doo-Ri Chung, and a strapless gown by Naeem Khan for the administrations first official state dinner in 2009 for India. The dress includes a black hand-sewn beaded embroidery applique scallop-edged top over a liberty blue silk faille corset, according to a statement from the designer. A wide black velvet belt breaks up the top from the

A pig in silk is still a pig.
It’s a tasteful dress and seems to fit decently, for a change. Could have brought the neckline up a bit ... but I give it a B+.
There’s enough blue fabric in that thing to make a great boat cover if she recycles it...
A “hide my suck out the fat” scars....performed at Oprah’s place. There was absolutely no other reason to stay there without the kids and hubby. They are not friends. They’re political bootlickers.
i love Carolina Herrera’s designs... she is elegant, tasteful...
a “voluminous skirt” is needed to cover her voluminous backside.
Why do her fitters keep thinking that her hips are her greatest asset?
A voluminous skirt is needed to cover that voluminous rear end.
Mistake. She looks better in straight dresses. The things with a belt and a full skirt look unfortunate on her. And I love Carolina Herrera.
The bottom half of it looks like something to be seen at a square dance.
I’m as far from a fan from these people as possible; however, I think she actually looks quite lovely. So often, I have cringed at her fashion choices. This dress is elegant and becoming. The shade of blue on the bodice is especially beautiful.
LMAO...That's as far as I got....Honest!...”Voluminous”..I'm still laughing!!
I’m sure the First “Lady” made the dress look extremely ugly.
I love the bodice and think it suits her. The flat-front skirt simply does not.
Let them eat cake!
I agree with you. If I had places to go where such beautiful dresses would be worn, this designer’s gowns are always graceful, elegant and dignified.
It is what it is. She has the figure she has....and I think it is leaps and bounds over previous selections.
Hair do is pretty good too for a change. Maybe it is a wig but whatever, it is becoming.
Screw that marxist pig, and the husband she rode in on.
I don’t really care what *designer* that sack of filth wears. She is and always will be an ugly piece of crap.
Agree — whoever took over her “imaging” has done wonders.
I would have given it an A+ if it had a blue hood for her face with and attached plug for her mouth.
concur. Let’s hope whoever took over doesn’t quit!
The dress is stunning, but not on her. Too long in the front, too.
The second photo’s revealing. The prez walks in front—by three paces?
wimmin are supposed to have voluminous backsides..
Is there a whole family living in the purple tipi?
It looks good on her.
Why is she always wearing white women’s wigs? (oops, that’s racist, isn’t it?)
I hope that.... Uh. No. I’m pretty new here and don’t want to get banned already. Just someone make sure to pass the salt while that......Never mind.
Your right. While the country starves, she puts on designer dresses. Piss on her- and the train she rode in on.
So expensive. So unnecessary.
These people give it an F
it beats her spamdex and muscle t shirts “outfits”..
Does that dress have a boob belt? Sure looks like it
It is outside of that tent she is wearing
The dress is beautiful and dignified and looks good on her. And for once she is not slouching (which, to be fair, is common for tall women). She must have a posture coach now.
Millions of Americans lost their heath insurance, lost their jobs and no longer work full time...the Obama’s party hard on the tax payer dime. Two Americas right there!
Did anyone else notice how they elongated the video to make Mochelle look tall and thinner?
“The dress is beautiful and dignified and looks good on her. And for once she is not slouching (which, to be fair, is common for tall women). She must have a posture coach now.”
Actually, it reminds me of this dress..-
or, rather the woman wearing it.
It doesn’t pay to hold in your feelings like that.
U.N. Blue bustle, with room for the pastry cart, and from the looks of it, five or six dwarves having a party. What more could one ask for?
Bless the starving pygmies in New Guinea.
This must be a bad example then because this dress is hideous.
She should act like Laura Bush. She bought off the rack. Nancy Reagan did too. She actually purchased hers from the thrift store. Michelle buys the best of the best.
Maybe they’re Republicans.
