The US First Lady Michelle Obama stunned in Indian-American fashion designer Naeem Khan’s creation on Friday at the State Dinner hosted by US President Barack Obama in honour of leaders from Nordic countries.
Michelle wore a blush-colored gown by the New York based designer which featured a bodice, full skirt and one-shoulder detailing. Naeem Khan has been one of the favorite designers of Mrs Obama, as she first wore the creation to her first State Dinner back in 2009.
The State Dinner is usually for one head of State. However, the President honoured five countries this time, including Sweden, Iceland, Finland, Denmark and Norway.
“She looks great,” Obama said complementing his wife as they welcomed the guests at the North Portico of the White House.
“He stepped on my dress,” quipped the First Lady. Popular Indian-American actor and comedian Aziz Ansari attended the State Dinner along with his mother Fatima Ansari.
Celebrities like Miranda Kerr, Tracee Ellis Ross, Al Roker, Connie Britton, David Letterman and Will Ferrell were also present. This was Obama’s 12th State Dinner after he hosted the inaugural one for the then Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in November 2009.
