Wednesday night, September 15th, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama attended the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute’s 33rd Annual Awards Gala at the Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. President Obama not only attended, but also spoke at this event. Along with the first couple, other popular figures in the audience included Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and actress Eva Longoria Parker.
For this occasion, Michelle opted for a metallic look, one of this season’s hottest trends, according to Vogue. She strutted onto the stage in a bronze, sequin dress by one of her favorite designers, Moschino. This look was accentuated by her dazzling, round earrings and gold, peep-toe pumps. President Obama chose to keep his look classic, wearing a traditional double-button tuxedo.
I’m a fan of President Obama’s classic double-button tux; this double-button jacket, popularized by Kennedy in the 1960’s, looks great on almost any man’s physique. However, what was Michelle thinking? This look might go over well on the runway, but not on Michelle’s pear silhouette. The shininess of this dress draws the viewers attention to bulges and problem areas that would otherwise go unnoticed. In my opinion, this dress could only be carried off by incredibly thin supermodels. Good try, Michelle! Maybe you’ll get it next time.
However, this is just my opinion. How do you think Mrs. Obama looks? Fashionably correct?
