Michelle Obama Wears Vera Wang to Kennedy Center Honors

Michelle Obama Shows Elegance in Vera Wang at the Kennedy Center Honors

Michelle Obama attended the 34th annual Kennedy Center Honors last night with President Barack Obama wearing a gorgeous strapless gown by Vera Wang. The diaphanous layers of tulle and ruched detailing are beautiful, and we love the bold cobalt blue hue. For accessories, the FLOTUS chose statement rhinestone earrings, silver footwear, and a chic updo. Attending your own black-tie soiree this season? Channel the same elegant look with our picks below.

Michelle looks stunning in this dress. I wöuld like to have seen some kind of a stole on her arm to complete the elegant look of it.

p.s. your comment "displaying her best attributes" is NOT what such a renowned event is all about. Like I asked before, is she attempting to be the talk of the event or the event itself? you're right about her being a well formed woman, but elegant? not! she always looks a bit out of place in some of the evening wear she chooses.

one day she's in a walmart special and the next a v wang. that's ridiculous as a first lady. who is she trying to kid? a strapless gown is a bit over the top for a first lady, but then, you must be younger than I. my generation has tried to keep a more modest style representing the white house, but with a lot of other things going on america these days, our influence is dwindling. it's a shame. strapless today, what tomorrow when you're my age? doesn't it make you wonder at all? if limits aren't set, america's younger generation looses because there is no guideline in place. give an inch and a mile is taken....

kayers43: As any First Lady, Mrs Obama is bound to dress in a dignified manner. Moreover, she is an elegant and very well formed woman, who has no reason to shy from displaying her best attributes in an elegant hugging number by a renowned designer.

beautiful gown. Modesty is difficult to come by these days, but I would think Michelle would want to practice it in her role as first lady and mother to two young girls. Maybe she's more in being the talk of the event instead of the event itself.....hummm
