We don’t often get excited about the attire of the American First Lady but this morning the world is abuzz about her dress and tousled do as she attended the state dinner with Justin Trudeau the Prime Minister of Canada and his wife Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau. It was like Hollywood had come to Washington on Friday night as the ladies donned dresses fit for the red carpet runways of the Oscars. It was also the first state dinner that Obama’s daughters had attended of this kind. A family moment in the spotlight is particularly precious when the first daughters have their first formal outing
Both first ladies were wearing “talk about me” dresses that are said to showcase some of the best design talent their countries have to offer, with Mrs Obama dressed by Jason Wu, and Mrs Gregoire-Trudeau dressed all in fuchsia by a Canadian designer Lucian Matis.
First daughters Sasha Obama, 14, and Malia Obama, 17 dressed to kill also, at their first black tie event like this in the Presidency, something Mr Trudeau celebrated in his speech, knowing the travails of being a child of a Prime Minister first hand as his own father was Prime Minister until he was 8 years old.
“The memories for me of being a kid and not being old enough to attend these kinds of events with my father almost makes me wish I had gone through my teenage years as the child of a world leader,” said Trudeau, 44. “Almost.”
Tell us what you think of the dresses today…
