Michelle Obama presented an award to legendary poet and and author Maya Angelou at the 2012 BET Honors which was held in Washington, D.C. on Saturday evening.

The First Lady looked regal wearing a J. Mendel Resort 2012 gown.

I adore the colour of this scarlet organza one-shoulder gown against her skin; she’s truly radiant.

Her chic updo keeps her hair away from that beautiful detail on her shoulder which cascades down the front of her gown.

As always she gets a perfect 10 from me.
