A State Dinner at the White House is a rather large and momentous occasion. The President and First Lady hosted a fete for China’s president Hu Jintao. But most of the coverage I read glossed over that and discussed one thing—FLOTUS Michelle Obama’s dress.
Some fashion pundits were not pleased with Michelle’s Alexander McQueen gown (which I read on Mrs. O was designed by McQueen’s predecessor Sarah Burton)—the somewhat off the shoulder fit that accentuated Michelle’s wonderful shoulders and arms with splashy pattern was drastic for some. I, for one, love the dress and the fashion statement it makes. And the upswept ‘do and the black floral wrap made for an interesting combination that worked.
Who says that the First Lady’s wears have to be drab or predictable? I think that Michelle, giving a fitting tribute to McQueen’s legacy and fashion icon status, looked stunning and regal in her frock.
What’s say you Cubes and Dudes?
