The dress Michelle Obama wore to the White House state dinner for Singapore on Tuesday night caught everyone’s attention.
The first lady wore a white strapless gown designed by Brandon Maxwell, the same stylist who dresses Lady Gaga, as the United States dined with Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his wife Ho Ching.
“A very proud moment for me and my team,” Maxwell said on Instagram alongside a photo of Obama. (RELATED: Hillary Clinton Wore A $13,000 Jacket While Speaking About Income Inequality)
Maxwell’s gowns typically cost somewhere between $3,500 and $7,000.
“With this visit, we’re celebrating 50 years of diplomatic relations between our two nations,” Obama said.
“Yet, even as we mark this anniversary of our formal ties, we honor bonds that stretch back at least 180 years when Singapore was still a colony and the United States was not far removed from being one ourselves.”
