FASHION, THE GUEST LIST AND WHAT WAS ON MICHELLE OBAMA’S MENU FOR THE STATE DINNER FOR HU JINTAO
Today, I asked a friend what should I blog about. They said, anything you want to, just make sure you cover off what Michelle Obama wore to The State Dinner – because everyone who is anyone is talking about it.
Fashion – Writes The Style List –”First Lady Michelle Obama wore a red petal-print silk organza Alexander McQueen gown for Wednesday’s state dinner in Washington, DC. The dinner was held to honor China in the presence of its president, Hu Jintao.
The dress was created by Sarah Burton, who succeeded McQueen at his fashion house following the designer’s death almost one year ago. Mrs. Obama’s choice of red was widely seen as a recognition of the color’s connection to the symbolism of happiness and prosperity in Chinese culture.”
