Michelle Obama Wears McQueen To State Dinner

|

Alright, Mrs. O! We’ve always been fans of the first lady and her fashion stylings, but Michelle Obama in Alexander McQueen has hit it out of the ball park. The occasion was a state dinner for the Chinese President, Hu Jintao last night. It’s also less than a month away from the one year anniversary of McQueen’s death, so this whole outfit feels like the prefect tribute. This gorgeous gown was designed by the late designer’s former assistant, Sarah Burton, who looks like she just fine at the reigns of the fashion house.

Just look at it? The crimson and black ruffled silk organza creation looks like a dream on Michelle. Perhaps it was customized, because this design seems to be a variation of this dress from the McQueen collection? She merchandised it up just right too, with large droplet earrings and a fringed black shawl. Who knew she would get so avant-garde? We guess that’s why there’s a whole website dedicated to Michelle-fashion, because you never know what she’s going to throw on next.
