After taking a break from the spotlight for a few weeks, First Lady Michelle Obama finally emerged tonight looking better than ever. Michelle turned heads when she arrived to the White House's state dinner in honor of China's president in a stunning red-and-black silk-printed gown by the late Alexander McQueen. Many believe Michelle may have worn red as a gesture to her Chinese guests, as red is the color of honor, loyalty and success in Chinese culture.
But it wasn't just the dress that made Michelle look fabulous, she added lovely ruby and gold earrings by Kimberly McDonald, which highlighted her gorgeous updo and soft makeup. She topped it all off with a fringed shawl, which added flair. With President Obama at her side, Michelle is proving that she just might be history's most fashion-forward first lady!
