Jackie Kennedy… who? 

Michelle Obama is a name that has become synonymous with style, grace and elegance, and for her first Whitehouse State Dinner she surpassed all expectations.

With a nod of admiration to the Indian Delegation in attendance, Obama wore a strapless golden-cream gown with an overlay of silver detailing, designed by Indian-born Naeem Khan, and made in India. The gown, which was all done by hand, took three weeks of work by approximately 40 people to make. Khan is well known for his intricately detailed work and resulting understated glamour. As is apparent, he was the perfect design choice for the dinner. 

Simply stunning.
