Fabulous in its own right, the gown's beauty was magnified by Mrs. Obama's dark gleaming skin, toned body, and simple accessories (I suppose one could argue that multiple gold and diamond bangles aren't all that simple, but they worked).
Her look was elegant, sophisticated, and glamorous, befitting of the red carpet beneath her feet and the occasion!
Her choice of an Indian-American designer was thoughtful too.
Isn't it unfortunate that two shameless social climbers seem to have stolen the moment?
