Michelle Obama Lights Up the Phoenix Awards Dinner in a Monochromatic Gown

Here is all the proof you need that you can wear white after Labor Day! Michelle Obama looked positively statuesque in a white-hot Bibhu Mohapatra gown at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s 44th Annual Legislative Conference Phoenix Awards Dinner on Saturday. The dress featured a halter-style neck and asymmetrical black stripe accents on the bodice’s front and a black trim at the waist. Obama accessorized the outfit with dangling earrings and styled her hair in loose curls for the Washington, D.C., event, where President Barack Obama delivered the keynote speech.

Michelle Obama is obviously a big fan of Mohapatra: Not only has she worn his designs before but the Indian-born and New York-based designer has also been invited to the White House’s first fashion workshop on Oct. 8. With the First Lady hosting the event, it’s no wonder that she is stepping up her style. We’ll have to keep an even closer eye on her fashion choices as the event draws near!

Jennifer Lopez and Michelle Obama Take a Selfie Together

It looks like Jennifer Lopez and Michelle Obama are BFFs. The First Lady is undoubtedly a busy woman, but she made time to take an adorable selfie with the singer yesterday. Lopez first posted the snap on Instagram, and Obama later followed suit. “Me and my girl @flotus at #LULAC National convention for the empowerment of Latinos. #represent #keynotespeaker #introingthekeynotespeaker #dreambig,” Lopez captioned the image.

The duo took the photo at the 2014 LULAC National Convention in New York City, where the singer introduced the First Lady for her speech, which focused on advancing the education, civil rights, and employment of Hispanic-Americans through community-based programs. The ladies were on the same style wavelength for the occasion: Each donned pretty floral ensembles. Lopez dazzled in a pale pink Zuhair Murad couture embroidered appliqué blouse and peplum pencil skirt, while Obama glowed in a white and blue print frock by Tanya Taylor.

Michelle Obama Stuns in Gray Marchesa at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner

Last night (May 3), the room for the 100th annual White House Correspondents’ dinner (a.k.a. the nerd prom) may have been packed wall to wall with celebrities like Mindy Kaling, Taylor Schilling and Olivia Munn swathed in designer finery, but there was little question who shone the brightest of the evening.

Dressed in a Marchesa gray tulle gown with a dropped-shoulder portrait neckline — a new cut for her– Michelle Obama nearly glowed from her lofted stage perch.  The dress, a sleeveless adaptation from Look 20 of the Marchesa Fall 2013 runway show that flaunted FLOTUS’s famously toned arms, also featured a fitted waistline and a sprinkling of romantic silver floral embroidery on the bodice.

For those keeping tabs, it’s not the first time Mrs. O favored Marchesa’s draped looks for eveningwear. She wore a teal green strapless gown by the luxury label, featuring draped silk chiffon at the shoulders, to the Kennedy Center Honors last December.

This time around, the First Lady finished her glamorous Hollywood look with flipped waves, sparkling Cathy Waterman drop earrings and a ready laugh–quite the breeze as both President Obama and host Joe McHale delivered their share of one-liners.
