On Wednesday night President Obama and Michelle Obama welcomed the President of Mexico Felip Calderon and his wife to a State Dinner at the White House.

My first reaction was that I really didn’t like the overly glam look, but on reflection I think it was a very bold move as she would’ve known jaws were dropping all over the world.

Her blue & silver asymmetrical Peter Soronen gown is lovely, even though with the shimmer and the diamante belt I’m thinking more ‘Sex And The City’ than State Dinner.

The curly hair does seem a bit too fluffy for a formal event, but she’s at home so why not glam up for her guests.

What do you think of the glammed up Mrs O?
