The First Lady arrived at the 2011 White House State Dinner, which welcomed Chinese President Hu Jintao, in a gorgeous petal print silk organza Alexander McQueen gown. I absolutely love his collections (I mean, who doesn’t) and she looks stunning.  The color choice and pattern are very flattering.  The full skirt was nipped and tucked for a nice silhouette allowing for a modern, Asian inspired twist while staying ball gown appropriate for the occasion.

According to Harpers Bazaar, the dress originally had sleeves, but the gown was modified to show off Michelle Obama’s best assets, her arms. Ladies take note; when shopping, always look for pieces that will show off your best assets!

Alexander McQueen Lives On!

The death of Alexander McQueen in February left the fashion world missing an icon.  McQueen was a young 40 year old designer who was known for his dramatic designs which have been worn by many celebrities including Rihanna and Lady Gaga.

Just because McQueen is gone doesn’t mean his fashion has to come to an end. His right hand woman, Sarah Burton, took over as creative director to continue the McQueen brand.  The Cruise 2011 Collection was unveiled last week and is AMAZING!! The collection was inspired by Hans Bellmer’s dolls and samurai warriors.
