First Lady in Red: Michelle Obama at the BET Honors 2012

Saturday evening First Lady Michelle Obama attended the BET Honors 2012 in style. At the ceremony, which took place at the Warner Theatre in Washington, DC, Mrs. Obama appeared on stage to pay tribute to Maya Angelou. A distinguished author and poet, Angelou has often been referred to as “America’s most visible black female autobiographer” and is best known for her work I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings.

Michelle looked stunning in a scarlet organza, one-shoulder gown by J. Mendel, a designer recently honored at the National Design Awards at the Smithsonian Museum in DC. With such a dramatic gown, the first lady opted to go light on the accessories, wearing only simple drop earrings.

The BET HONORS 2012 will air February 13, 2012.

What do you think of Mrs. Obama’s gown? Is it fashionably correct?
