Michelle Obama wears floor-length custom-made, rose gold, chainmail Atelier Versace at Final State Dinner much to the delight of the world and the man beside her.
For the last thirteen years and eight state dinners that the First Family has hosted since sitting at the most powerful seat of the world, this is the moment that the First Lady of the United States has shined the brightest. Welcoming Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his wife Agnese Landini to the White House, the gown is a salute to their Italian friends, marking the celebration of friendship between the two nations, BBC reported.
There are weeks to go before President Barrack Obama ends his administration, and his First Lady opted to surpass high expectations for the event attended by guests from politics, finance, and fashion ranging from Roberto Benigni, to Jerry Seinfeld, and Giorgio Armani to Naeem Khan, and Savannah Guthrie to Gayle King and pop star Gwen Stefani. Food Network's superstar chef Mario Batali was in charge of the multi-course meal cooking with the use of the vegetable from the White House garden.
The $12,000 gown featured the First Lady's sculpted arm and curvy figure, making her entire look festive and classic. She has rocked the creations of Alexander McQueen, Brandon Maxwell, Tom Ford, Vera Wang, and more but this is the crowd favorite. The night will certainly go down in fashion history because the moment POTUS and FLOTUS entered the room; the world shifted its focus on the First Lady.
The designer herself couldn't have found the perfect muse to wear dress. Donatella Versace said "I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to dress the first lady of the United States Michelle Obama," Vogue reported. The Italian also thanked the First Lady for all of the things she has done for America and for the rest of the world in chorus with the millions of people who have been inspired by the works of Michelle.
President Obama looked dapper in his tux to complement the stunning of his first lady. During his speech he quipped that some days the presidential campaign seems like Dante's Inferno, but also said they definitely saved the best for last referring to the Italian power couple who were the honorary guests of the night.
