Absolutely stunning!

This was so unexpected! Breathtaking to say the very least! I hate to see them go in 2017! Sigh! At least we will have the next four years of greatness to loo forward to!

HER color!

Sunday, December 4, 2011 at 7:46 PM | Unregistered CommenterEsme

Oh my, she is breathtaking! Eagerly awaiting whatever you can tell us about the dress, Mrs. T, and those killer earrings, too!

Meryl Streep looks lovely. That draping and the fabric -- jersey? -- makes me wonder if it could be Doo-Ri Chung?

2017...from your lips...She looks beautiful. Can't wait to learn the designer.

Sunday, December 4, 2011 at 8:05 PM | Unregistered CommenterKathie

Utterly stunning. She's pulls off being both sophisticated and sexy like no other modern woman. I love her.

Sunday, December 4, 2011 at 8:32 PM | Registered CommenterY T

Hottest first lady ever.

Sunday, December 4, 2011 at 8:32 PM | Unregistered CommenterKatie

OMG I want this dress! She looks beautiful.

Sunday, December 4, 2011 at 8:37 PM | Unregistered CommenterK

She looks better than any Hollywood star who has ever walked the red carpet. No doubt about it. And it's not just about the dress, but about the real, genuine person inside of it, that sets her apart.

Sunday, December 4, 2011 at 8:39 PM | Registered Commenterbabs

Yes. This will go down as one of her absolute best. Better than the inaugural, better than the state dinners.....really, one of the BEST!!!!!!!!!

SPEECHLESS!!!!!!!!

She looks DYNAMITE ! More pictures on The Obama Diary.com You can see POTUS looking lovingly at FLOTUS! What a FABULOUS looking couple. This family has dug DEEP in the gene pool. Everyone is good looking in this family! From the First Grandmother to the dog Bo!

Have we ever had a more beautiful and fashionable first lady? I'm 70 years old and the only one who comes close is Jackie Kennedy -- a very different kind of beauty and fashion leader.

So wonderful to see a modern and fashionable first lady who goes out of her comfort zone and experiments with new trends! I love the hair, makeup, accessories, dress, EVERYTHING!!! Her smile is radiant and the color the dress makes her face pop. Definitely one of her best looks yet!

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 3:55 AM | Unregistered CommenterEllebelle

There are no adjectives left in the English language to explain how truly dazzling they BOTH look.

Wow, wow and wow!! Gorgeous dress, gorgeous color, gorgeous hair and gorgeous husband!! What more could a woman want?

I actually gasped when i opened this page....this is gorgeous...words fail me

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 7:13 AM | Unregistered CommenterAida

A+.

beautiful!

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 9:05 AM | Unregistered Commenterkitcat

She lost me with the flats; it totally downgraded this beautiful gown.

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 9:47 AM | Unregistered Commenterwbndc

Love love love the colour and the style. Mrs. O looks gorgeous!!

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 10:06 AM | Unregistered Commenterschandy

I get goosebumps just looking at this! It's stunning. What really makes it, though, is Mrs. O's smile. Such a fantastic photograph!

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 10:06 AM | Unregistered CommenterHell's Kitchen

I hope she wears more Vera Wang because this dress is sensational.

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 10:17 AM | Unregistered CommenterAnitaW

Gorgeous dress. This is her best look ever ever ever. It reminds me of my wedding dress and makes me want to get married all over again. This is the kind of dress that you never want to take off. Mrs. O needed better support in the stomach area but still an A+ look for me.

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 10:35 AM | Unregistered CommenterMrs. A

Ohhh SNAP! This woman rocks a blue/purple dress like no one else! Drop. Dead. Gorgeous. They are sooooo fun to watch!

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 10:58 AM | Unregistered CommenterAlisa

@ Jestina, I totally agree!

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 11:29 AM | Registered CommenterSoccerNana

Breathtaking! She truly is one of the most beautiful and chic First Ladies we have ever had. This has to be one of my favorite gowns she has worn. Love how she accessorized as well with the earrings.

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 11:45 AM | Registered CommenterGeorgina

Absolutely gorgeous -- can't get much better than this.

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 12:23 PM | Unregistered CommenterKathy

Mrs. O = VA-VA-VOOM
The President = SWOON

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 12:23 PM | Unregistered CommenterAdear

Fabulous beyond words!!!!

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 12:32 PM | Unregistered Commentercsimmonsmd

Good morning - Like you - I gasped when I first saw the picture. When you think Mrs. O. can't out do herself - she takes it higher. Vera and Michelle were made for each other. Definitely one of Vera's best designs. Mrs. O looks fantastic. She has raised the bar for future first ladies. This dress is perfect. Oscar is going to have to raise his game if he ever wants a nod. I suspect that Vera can make a few tweaks to make this a wedding dress.

Great choice.

Monday, December 5, 2011 at 12:38 PM | Unregistered Commenterpt821

This is first time I have ever seen a First Lady actually earn the title. Mrs. O does it with class and style.
