The President and First Lady attended the Pritzker Architecture Prize ceremony at Andrew Mellon Auditorium in Washington, DC this evening. This year's winner is Portuguese architect Eduardo Souto de Moura.
For the event, Mrs. O wore a long blue halter gown, which appears to be Reed Krakoff Spring 2011, seen here. Confirmation to follow, and thanks to reader Bayo for the excellent spot. (Update: Indeed, the gown is Reed Krakoff.) One can't help but wonder if perhaps the First Lady was drawn to the gown for its distinctive architectural lines, perfectly fitting for the occasion.
