More than 350 guests flooded the White House Wednesday evening for the largest State Dinner of President Obama's term thus far. The affair feted British Prime Minster David Cameron and his wife, Samantha.
For this occasion, the fashionable First Lady Michelle Obama opted for a floor-length dark blue gown by Marchesa. In October, Michelle wore a gown by Korean-American designer Doo-Ri Chung when the U.S. hosted a State Dinner for South Korea's First Couple. No coincidence there.
Mrs. O is lauded for her thoughtful designer selections for events where she hosts foreign visitors, and Wednesday's State Dinner was no exception: Marchesa is the line of British ladies Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig.
