Michelle Obama is a hit or miss fashionista. When she hits it, she's dead on. When she misses it, oh well, blog fodder. Yesterday during her state dinner with Chinese President Hu Jintau, she hit it. Hard. Whoop there it is! A Fashion slam dunk. Can we say out the ballpark? You get my drift.

This red, silk organza dress designed by Sarah Burton for the London House of Alexander McQueen is right on time. The silhouette is phenomenal. The color, a bold red, was probably chosen because red is the country's color. The New York Times reported today the gown came  with long sleeves, but that Mrs. Obama had it altered to the asymmetrical capped ones  to suit her taste.(In this case that was excellent.)  The dress was a part of the McQueen House's Resort 2011 collection.
