For her final state dinner, FLOTUS Michelle Obama stunned attendees in her Atelier Versace gown.
Known for donning a gown from a native designer, Michelle chose Versace for the last state dinner as the first lady. An ode to the designer's home country being Italy, the dress was a symbol of magnetism and sparkled brighter than any other garment that night.
The dress itself was made of rose gold chainmail and was a true masterpiece. While it was elegantly draped and gathered, the dress still represented a great deal of female power. Designed by Donatella Versace herself, the dress represented perseverance and pride in being a woman with a success story. When discussing the design of Michelle's dress, Donatella said, ”I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to dress the first lady of the United States, Michelle Obama. Thank you Michelle for all the things you did for America and for the rest of the world, for the women in the U.S. and the rest of the world.”
Last month, Donatella described her most recent women's collection as “all about a woman’s freedom: freedom of movement, freedom of activity, freedom to fight for their ideas, freedom to be whomever you want to be.”
Throughout her time as FLOTUS, Michelle has been seen in several other Italian designer pieces such as Gucci, Missoni and Giambattista Valli. It seems as though she was waiting for the perfect moment to come out in Versace... and a perfect moment it was.
If you're in agreement with the rest of us, you'll surely miss the ethereal presence of Mrs. Obama. When it comes to first ladies, we'll just go ahead and say that she takes the cake.
