White House State Dinner: Michelle Obama Dazzles, but Secretary Rogers is Best Dressed
Last evening the President and Mrs. Obama received Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh at the first State Dinner of the Obama administration. The First Lady was dazzling in a beautiful silver gown made by Indian designer Naeem Khan.
We just watched Mr. Naeem Khan on Larry King Live. Of interest, both the designer’s father and grandfather designed for Indian royalty in their careers. Mr. Khan relayed that he designed 3 or 4 gowns for the event, which were coordinated through Ikram Goldman in Chicago. The brief had been “Indian, chic, simple, but very glamorous.” With that, Mr. Khan chose the color, embroidery, cut and all other aspects of the gowns. He called the moment of seeing the first lady in his design, “So joyous,” continuing, “For me to be part of this historic occasion, being Indian, it is beyond amazing. It is an incredible moment for me.” Source: Mrs-O.org
But while Mrs. Obama was stunning, style-wise Social Secretary Desiree Rogers was the best of the evening. Sec. Rogers chose a cutting edge gown from Comme Des Garcons, featuring layers of pearls under sheer chiffon.
