This weekend all eyes were on Michelle Obama. On Saturday, April 27th the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner took place in D.C. and the event was start studded and filled with amazing fashion choices. Of course our very fashionable first lady gave us life in the style department, opting to wear a black cap sleeve gown from American Fashion Designer Monique Lhuillier.
Though Michelle’s look was photographed from the waistline up we know the gown is amazing from the high neckline with beaded embellishment and lace detailing. Monique Lhuillier is also very well know for her red carpet attire, dressing A list divas like Nicki Minaj, Sarah Michelle, Padma Lakshmi and Naomie Harris to name a few.
FLOTUS paired this look with her famous bangs and her stunning smile. She even received a little shout out from a very happy designer via twitter for rocking one of her garments:
