When trying to encourage us in dance class, my instructor used to ask for 'goosebumps' where our moves were so flawless and beautiful, they gave him chills. If there was a fashion equivalent, Michelle Obama in red Alexander McQueen would be it.
Designed by Sarah Burton, the floor-length red-petal print silk organza dress from the Resort 2011 collection is stunning enough on its own. The deep red hue and full skirted bottom brings drama, which is in turn tempered by the romantic red-petal print. Perfection.
Add to that the breathlessly beautiful Michelle Obama with her perfect arms (highlighted by the off-shoulder neckline), her radiant skin and her elegant updo (that shows off her gorgeously long neck)...and you have one of the first great red carpet moments of 2011!
As always, Mrs. Obama's regal looks are as glamorous as they are smart. The red symbolizes 'Good Luck' in Chinese culture. The perfect dress in which to attend the China State Dinner, wouldn't you say?
What did you think of Michelle Obama's brilliant fashion moment? Obvs, I think it's a total Glam Slam!
