And what about the stunning gown Ms. Angelou is wearing? Both women are such a striking picture!

Stunning! I love this style of dress on Mrs. O. She looks fabulous! So proud to have her as our First Lady.

Oooh! I saw this on the Obama Diaries and was hoping you would be able to identify it. It is a stunning dress, and Mrs. Obama looks fabulous. It looks like the organza is a drape in the front and the rest of the dress is jersey. Maya Angelou looks wonderful, too.

Another elegant evening gown...love it!

Oh my God. Michelle looks absolutely stunning. I saw the picture on Daily Maily and she was standing next to two holywood younger ladies and they could not hold a candle to her true gorgeous self. Keep it up Michelle. You are a true inspiration.

Lovely colour, lovely dress, Michele seems to have toned up nicely. Gorgeus lady. More power to Michele Obama

Lovely! I saw the gown on Essence and was hoping you'd cover it.

I must say that in the past few years that our First Lady has been looking on point! First Lady Michelle Obama looks Amazing from head to toe. Michelle's Dress and hair and especially her Flawless makeup and face is absolutely stunning, classy and elegant. Her Stature and presence is astounding. I am proud to have her as our First Lady. May I also add that "Let's Move" is clearly showing.

Obama 2012!

Mrs. O.'s hair looks fabulous, and she is wearing a gorgeous dress in a stunning color. In my opinion, the dress is too snug around the hips and thighs, and that takes something away from it. Maya Angelou looks just beautiful and her gown is wonderful. I can only hope to look that good as I get older.

I was there, and this picture, beautiful as it is, does not do justice to the lovely way the dress flowed and moved with her -- not snug in the hips at all. The lines of the dress also showed off her elegant height; you would need a full-length shot to get the impact. There were ladies sharing that stage who had on plenty of glitter (Mariah C, Queen Latifah) and FLOTUS outshone them all.

Both ladies are breath-taking!

Lovely, just lovely!

Very happy belated birthday, First Lady!

Our Michelle looks nothing short of AMAZING!
Hair on point, make-up on point, dress on point.......HOME RUN!
Look on gettyimages to see some spectacular photos of the event. The women turned it out! They showed up dressed to kill and took no prisoners. Maya Angelou's dress fits her like a glove. I'm telling you, I cannot wait to see this on BET on February 13th. I will tape this for sure!

Gorgeous. Simply gorgeous.

@Christen. The dress fits perfectly and is not snug at the hips and thighs at all. The dress caresses our First Lady's curves as fabric does when a woman has something to put in it.

Sallie and Ruth - of course the dress fits perfectly. Anyone with half an eye can tell. Christen just likes to find fault with whatever Mrs O wears. I think it's her only hobby.

FYI...the Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt is in New York City, not in DC.

Thursday, January 19, 2012 at 9:27 PM | Unregistered CommenterD.

Both Ruth and Posh Tater are dead wrong. When a dress puckers like this one does, it is too snug...curves or not. Posh, I think crticizing me is your only hobby. If you really read what I have said, the majority of the time there is no criticism of mrs. O. made by me.

Our wonderful First Lady looks elegant. I love her hair up and curly like that. From the look of the photos posted here, the gown does appear to be snug below the waist. I read that the garments that are made for her are made to her measurements, but not fitted on her personally, so that might account for the snug fit. In any case, she looks wonderful. I really don't know how she can always look so poised. If I had all those cameras on me and people staring at me, I would feel so intimidated. But our First Lady just takes it all in stride!

Both women are gorgeous! I think Christen is jealous. And, a belated Happy Birthday to Flotus. I was sick earlier in the week and it slipped by me. Keep on with the wonderful initiatives for health and veterans. I can only imagine what would happen if you and Barack weren't in the White House the next 4 years. Sharon in Austin
