Despite what we are almost certain critics will say, our First Lady, Michelle Obama, knocked this one out of the park. We think she looked absolutely ravishing at the White House's annual Governors Ball this week and by the look on our President's face, he thinks so too!

What we love most about Michelle's latest look is that she knew better than to pair all that sparkle with an over the top cut. Instead she kept the silhouette simple and added pearl ropes and studs to finish off the look. We will definitely be sporting the pearls for the next formal fete we attend, thanks to Michelle!
