Michelle Obama In Vera Wang – The 34th Kennedy Center Honors

The belle of the ball at the 34th Annual Kennedy Center Honors last night was Michelle Obama.

She looked divine wearing a gorgeous strapless Vera Wang custom gown.

FLOTUS once again upstaged the President in this cobalt tulle gown with accentuating bias drape and a tiered skirt with feathered organza accents.

The bold blue hue and statement jewels ensured that all eyes were on her.

She always make my heart melt.

    she really looks sensational, doesn’t she? this is definitely among her best looks, top to toe.

    That dress is way too tight in the stomach area. In some shots, she looks pregnant. As far as the tightness of the fit, Michelle likes her everything too tight. It was custom made and I’m sure she instructed Vera with the tightness of the fit.

    Usually I don’t really know what the big deal is with people’s obsession of her style, but even I can’t deny how good she looks. Everything about this look is perfect. It’s age appropriate, event appropriate and most of all first lady appropriate. Mrs Obama looks bangin’

    OMG its devine!!!

    Wow 49 responses and all positive. She’s got to be the BDOTW. I just saw hillary swank n i went like why didnt she wear this another week. It’ll be had to beat this one. Lets see 🙂

  9. Jess2 December 6, 2011 at 11:34 #

    The First Lady has got it going on!! A BDOTW contender without a doubt! at first glance I thought that it may have been a bit too tight but on re-evaluation it is just amazing!! style snaps for Michelle, and Vera ofcourse for such an awesome dress!!

  10. Ines December 6, 2011 at 10:20 #

    She looks amazing She has way way more apparances than the Duchess of Cambridge and she got it right 80% of the time. She is almost 20 years older than the Duchess yet she looks younger and is full of life while still being always incredibly elegant and polished. She has a great style, maybe not suited to everyone but it’s hers and she looks fabulous. Gosh I hope FLOTUS never take the Kate’s route.

    I saw a lot of great dresses on this AMAZING site but no one this year has blew me away the same way this woman just did! BDOTY for me ! She just oozed graze and elegance without being a fashionista. Love her !

  12. Camellia December 6, 2011 at 09:14 #

    The colour is lovely. But the fit is unflattering. The dress cuts in too much in the underarm area and it looks like it is too tight across her thighs. I’ve seen the back of the dress elsewhere and it wasn’t pretty.

    She should follow The Duchess of Cambridge’s lead and wear more formal dresses with (long) sleeves.

      “She should follow The Duchess of Cambridge’s lead and wear more formal dresses with (long) sleeves.”

      Good god I hope not.

      • rita December 6, 2011 at 10:22 #

        Are you kidding? She should follow anyone BUT Kate. She dresses so boring and never half as good as flotus i prefer Michelle obama’s toned body to that bag of bones! No disrespect to your duchess but she always looks so yawnnnn and old when she is only in her early 20’s.

        • Fashion Critic December 6, 2011 at 12:46 #

          you didn’t understand my comment, which was referring to Camellia’s comment

        • Camellia December 6, 2011 at 20:59 #

          She’s not my Duchess. I’m not British.

          FLOTUS may have a toned body but this dress (and many others she wears) appear to not have been tailored to fit be properly which results in unattractive bulges which makes her look less toned than she is.

          The Duchess is in her late 20s and IMO some occassions that she attends – and this goes for the FLOTUS too – call for a more conservative style of dress.

      • rita December 6, 2011 at 15:32 #

        Sorry fc lol! I was replying to camelia but instead i replied to you by accident. I absolutely agreed with your comment ! Keep the good work your blog is perfect to me 🙂

  13. Luis December 6, 2011 at 08:16 #

    The same problem as always, POSTURE!!

  15. Tina December 6, 2011 at 07:12 #

    The colour suits her complexion perfectly! A great look from Mrs. Obama.

  16. Liz December 6, 2011 at 06:06 #

    Michelle looks AMAZING!! BDOTW contender for sure!

  17. Rebecca Z December 6, 2011 at 05:47 #

    Total delight. gorgeous dress, gorgeous woman, great earrings–and nice candy on her arm. POTUS is looking pretty good too.

  18. Tahj December 6, 2011 at 03:42 #

    My heart is melting too. This is just PERFECTION. Nothing beats a royal blue dress!

  19. Mol December 6, 2011 at 03:22 #

    Oh my! I’m entranced, this is so pretty, she looks so fresh and lovely, bravo!

  20. Jen December 6, 2011 at 03:19 #

    BDOTW. I’d be surprised if someone topped this for me.

  21. KC December 6, 2011 at 02:32 #

  25. JG December 5, 2011 at 23:56 #

  26. ash December 5, 2011 at 23:51 #

    oh my, i’m blushing looking at her..stunning is the perfect word! and teh best part is that she has an amazing figure that is toned to perfection! ahhh<3

  27. Jones19 December 5, 2011 at 23:24 #

    She looks awesome here but there’s always the same problem with her posture. She should really see a chiropractor or a physical therapist to help her with that.

  28. asherlev1 December 5, 2011 at 23:20 #

    Lol, I hate to be a downer, but seeing Michelle always makes me think “If Kate Middleton had half her presence…”

    But yeah, gorgeous! Delight as always.

    • Mrs. A December 7, 2011 at 08:48 #

      Kate middleton is 29, Michelle Obama is 47. There is almost a 20 yr age difference so I think it’s an unfair comparison. I’m sure Michelle Obama at age 29 isnt the michelle Obama we”re getting today. Her poise, grace and confidence was acquired over time. She has 20 ys over Kate. I am not a Kate fan by any means. I find her outfits boring but this comparison is rather unfair.

      • asherlev1 December 7, 2011 at 21:21 #

        Valid point! But my angle is more that people give Kate more praise than she is due, and I’m always left wanting more, and then when I see Michelle I’m always so awed and I think ‘you know, if Kate had that kind of presence I could understand why people acted so crazy about her’. But sure, you’re differentiating between fashion choices and poise, which I can understand.

        • asherlev1 December 7, 2011 at 21:24 #

          But also, and I’m just curious, because I don’t live in Britain, but has Kate not been in the public spotlight for a while because she was dating Will?

          And also imo, age does not necessarily correlate with poise.

  29. Nicole December 5, 2011 at 23:20 #

    I don’t always love what the FLOTUS is wearing, but this is GORGE. I literally fell over when I saw her wearing this stunning blue gown. It doesn’t hurt that this is one of my favorite colors for clothing. Head to toe perfection. BDOTW for sure.

  30. gurlygurl December 5, 2011 at 23:16 #

    Stunning gown and she wears it with such grace and elegance. A must for BDOTW!

  31. Linda December 5, 2011 at 22:58 #

    It’s always a treat to see her in eveningwear. Remember that awesome McQueen gown?

  32. Ella December 5, 2011 at 22:55 #

    I love this just as much as I did when I saw it yesterday….I’m having color envy!!

  33. Maz December 5, 2011 at 22:54 #

    Amazing!!! Colour is perfect on her. That is one proud husband! This may even make into my top ten BDOTY…

  34. Gigi December 5, 2011 at 22:47 #

    Times are tough, but those 2 have perfected the beautiful smile… they are just fabulous. Her long gowns are always home runs!

  35. GirlOne December 5, 2011 at 22:46 #


  36. Moxie December 5, 2011 at 22:31 #

    BDOTW contender for sure.

  37. CreoleLady December 5, 2011 at 22:19 #

    The FLOTUS and the first lady of American (US) acting, Meryl Streep , were my faves from this event. Both beautifully represented the over 45 set in a town not known for fashion.

    Thank you FC for battling those pesky tech issues to bring us a fabulous day of fashion!

    • Fashion Critic December 5, 2011 at 23:12 #
