The dress Michelle Obama wore to the her final Kennedy Center Honors night this week caught everyone’s attention.
The first lady was dressed in an off-the-shoulder pink-and-green custom-made gown designed by Gucci. As noted by the New York Times, it’s the first time she has worn a non-American designer to this ceremony.
The president, who received a standing ovation, was dressed in a tuxedo.
Michelle’s outfit rivals the white dress she wore to the state dinner for Singapore back in August.
“We need song, and cinema, and paintings and performance to help us challenge our assumptions, to question the way things are and maybe inspire us to think how things might be,” Obama said during the night.
“The arts help us celebrate our triumphs, but also hold up a mirror to our flaws. And all of that deepens our understanding of the human condition, it helps us to see ourselves in each other, it helps to bind us together as a people.”
