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 administration’s first official state dinner in 2009 for India.

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.

a “voluminous skirt” is needed to cover her voluminous backside.

Well, for once she's not showing her armpits.

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.

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.

I love the bodice and think it suits her. The flat-front skirt simply does not.

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.

I would have given it an A+ if it had a blue hood for her face with and attached plug for her mouth.

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?

Your right. While the country starves, she puts on designer dresses. Piss on her- and the train she rode in on.

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!

Actually, it reminds me of this dress..-

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.

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.
