Michelle Obama Is A Dreamgirl!
And no, Michelle Obama is not starring in the return-to-Broadway production of the iconic stage play, but she did look lovely in a [literally] dazzling sleeveless gold gown and shawl designed by Indian-American designer Naeem Khan, who also designed the costumes for the 2006 movie “Dreamgirls”:
Her & presidential husband Barack Obama welcomed Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife Mrs. Gursharan Kaur for the first official state dinner on Tuesday night:
Here’s what the fabulous First Lady had to say about the first State Dinner, and the overall importance of having them:
“The states visits and dinners are a really important part of our nation’s diplomacy. Throughout history they’ve given US presidents and the American people the opportunity to make important milestones in foreign relations. So these dinners and events are really critical to what we do internationally. And they’ve helped build stronger ties with nations as well as people around the world. That’s what President Obama and Prime Minister Singh are doing today.”
She also invited 17 high school girls that she mentor to the exclusive dinner, so that they can get a feel of something they see as “untouchable”. Oh, how I hope to be as gracious, warm, inviting, and inspiring as she when I grow up. *admires from afar*
