Michelle Obama In Halston – 2011 White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

Michelle Obama hosted the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner in Washington, DC with her husband this weekend.

The First Lady opted to wear a beautiful Halston Fall 2008 gown.

Her coffee coloured gown has been modified slightly as the plunge on her dress isn’t so deep.

Michelle is known for her love of accessorizing with beautiful jewelry – Erickson Beamon and Alexis Bittar are her favourites.

On this occasion I think her Irit Design jewels are overkill. I would’ve preferred this look without them.

The gown is so simple and charming on its own plus the colour is so gorgeous on her, I wish she had let the gown speak for itself.

    Lovely. Her hair looks great – I like her willingness to change it around – and I even like the jewellery, since it’s such a trademark for her.

    Without the jewelery, it would’ve been boring. Ms. Obama looks great as always!

    OMG FC, I love the necklace! I want one.

    The jewels are not too much! She looked beautiful. The dress worn in the photo by the model with the not really done hair and bony shoulders looks awful, like she’s wearing a prison frock.

    I don’t like the jewelry, really unnecessary, also not particularly beautiful, most of all the necklace.

    I love this look minus the necklace!

    I love her hair here. Gorgeous dress on a beautiful woman.

    I think she looks gorgeous. I think she should have worn either the necklace or earrings.

    @ FC Did U know last time she wore a beautiful skirt from THE ROW ? yeah… Bye

      yes I did know

  10. mol May 2, 2011 at 15:31 #

    Wow, she looks great – but I too say lose the necklace….

    I know that some have complained if she doesn’t wear enough jewelry as for events like this she needs to (in some peoples’ eyes) look as glam as the actresses that were invited…so that may explain some of it. She does look great though.

    i thought she looked stunning… and sexy! she always looks polished and sophisticated but i liked this because it was more fun. i’ll take the extra jewels, she can work em.

    I agree with June – the necklace was one step too far. But overall I think it’s my favorite look of hers ever.

    PS: I want that dress!!

  14. Rebecca May 2, 2011 at 14:31 #

    She looks fabulous and very sexy–the back of this dress also looks amazing on her. I like the draped necklace, but it looks like she is also wearing a choker and I don’t like that–perhaps it is part of the longer necklace–if so, it is kind of overkill

    Stunning love the dress, the hair, and the necklace. If I could remove one thing, it would be the earrings, which are a bit much next to the necklace.

  16. Erica B. May 2, 2011 at 14:07 #

    She looked stunning! She probably wore the necklace because she felt she was showing a lot of skin.

  17. robbie May 2, 2011 at 13:21 #

    for me with halston the accessories should be kept minimal.

  18. Joy May 2, 2011 at 12:50 #

    She looks beautiful. I actually love the jewellery.

    • Gigi May 2, 2011 at 14:36 #

      I do too, Joy. I think they make the look!

      • Elle May 3, 2011 at 05:37 #

        The jewelry was fabulous!! Wowee! I want those jewelry pieces right now!

  19. june May 2, 2011 at 12:30 #

    she is gorgeous in this. i think if she lost the necklace but kept the earrings and bracelet, i’d love all of it

    ~Absolutely Amazing! I Love the Whole Cleopatra look, with the Snake Jewelry~ It is Quite Right!

  21. Lucía May 2, 2011 at 11:11 #

    Yes, I completely agree with you. The dress looks amazing on her, but the jewelry is too much.

  22. Vidhya May 2, 2011 at 10:55 #

    The jewels were too much but she looks STUNNING… such a beautiful colour and her hair is so sexy 🙂

  23. Cece May 2, 2011 at 10:42 #
