Michelle Obama Dazzles at the First State Dinner

There has been speculation for the last week about what the first lady, Michelle Obama, would wear to the Obama's first state dinner to honor the visit of Indian Prime Minister, Manmohan Singh, and his wife, Gursharan Kaur. As predicted she wore a gown by an Indian American Designer.

Her strapless gown was designed by Naeem Khan and featured hand cut sterling silver sequins which were sewn onto silk chiffon in a floral pattern. All hand made, the dress took 40 people three weeks to complete. It was made in India and is a one of a kind design. The sleeveless gown was gold and cream-coloured sheath dress and had a matching shawl.

The overall look was a departure from Ms. Obama's sometimes controversial style of fashion. Her whole look was fairly traditional and more conservative than normal and was slightly reminscent of her predecessors - although the jewelry was pure Mrs. O.

The first lady's accessories included elaborate chandelier dangle earrings with a fleur de lis pattern and large hoop dangle, and a huge stack of glittering gold and diamond bangle bracelets piled high on her left arm.
