Michelle Obama’s Modern Take On Eveningwear

Share

In Washington D.C. on Friday evening Michelle Obama stood beside President Obama to welcome Chinese President Xi Jinxing and his wife Peng Liyuan to a state dinner at the White House. The First Lady wore a custom Vera Wang off-the-shoulder gown—fitting for the black tie occasion—but balanced the sophisticated ensemble by wearing her hair loose over one shoulder. The result was modern, polished and highly approachable. We recommend channeling her low-maintenance look for your next black tie affair (and clearly the President agrees).
