Michelle Obama's Naeem Khan gown, though dreamy and princess-like with a sweetheart neckline, is not your standard gold dress. It doesn't shimmer with sequins or come adorned with bows, but instead is netted and weaved with crinkled metallic details. Its dark underlay grounds the FLOTUS's ensemble, complementing her black sandals and gemstone rings. But it was her row of bangles by Bavna that really stood out at the annual Phoenix Awards.
If we didn't know any better, we'd say Michelle chose her ballgown based on her jewels, and that's the appeal of a flawlessly coordinated outfit. It's little decisions like these that prove the first lady does not lack in style. It's certainly why we'll miss seeing her standout wardrobe as she gears up to leave the White House. Until then, reminisce over more of her most memorable looks and shop similar strapless dresses for your next big event.
