It was just a normal evening for Michelle and Barack Obama, attending a state dinner in Buenos Aires alongside Argentine leader Mauricio Macri and his wife, Juliana Awada. But then, suddenly, two tango dancers swept them off their feet. Michelle's satin, crystal-embellished dress swayed with the music, playing up her metallic Jimmy Choo kitten heels that were just the right height for dancing.
