Michelle Obama attended the State Dinner in honour of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife, Akie Abe, on Tuesday (April 28) at the White House in Washington, D.C.
Regal in royal purple, with President Barrack Obama by her side the FLOTUS wore a Tadashi Shoji gown featuring tonal, feathery lace embroidery at the bodice cascading into beautiful, frothy layers of tulle.
Michelle Obama mixes refined elegance with fanciful femininity for a softer side to the more structured silhouette she occasionally favours.
A loosely undone updo and natural makeup contributed an effortless finishing touch to her entrance.
