State Dinner Dresses

Last night the Obamas hosted their second state dinner, this time honoring Mexican President Felipe Calderon and his wife, Margarita Zavala. The first lady wore a one-shoulder gown by Peter Soronen and debuted a new curly hairstyle.

Love Michelle's new hair! The old hairdo was too severe and dated her look. She looks current and professional!

The style of the dress is absolutly stunning but the boob flowing into the arm fat/skin on her right side is incredible distracting, I feel that with all the stylists she has at her fingertips she could have done a better job of having this fit.

The first pic I saw of the First Lady didn't show the shimmery side of the dress she wore - I think it might have been spot-on were it not for the flash aspect. I don't have too much good to say about this president, or his administration, but Michelle has a great sense of style, and I don't see anything wrong with that!

I completely agree with Mrs. Life Accounts above. Mrs. First Lady is gorgeous and I love her new hair style, but the fit of the dress is completely awful -- looks way too snug under the arm, which ruins all glamour and sophistication.

Michelle almost always looks great -- and I love the cobalt blue on her. My only criticism (besides the fit up top as the other ladies pointed out) is the sheen of the dress...somehow it just feels too sparkly...thoughts?

I thought Mrs. O looked stunning. Love that do!

The fabric on Michelle's dress looks so cheap. The color is ok though. And enough with the one shoulder stuff! Hair is a nice change.

Color is fabulous, hair is marvelous, boob is distracting. Looks like it got stuck in the mammogram machine. Shame that someone with a staff had no one to tell her a squashed boob would upstage everything else that is elegant about her.
