The Kween looks amazing and confident!

Very sweet of B. D. Wong to bring his mother, who I am sure must have been thrilled to attend, but it would have been interesting and rather timely if he and his partner (who, I guess, stayed home with their child) could have attended.

Fantastic photos and Michelle looks great...even though she seemed to have not received the memo that State Dinners are formal...as in: long gown. Did any woman beside Michelle wear a short cocktail dress?

Well, I'm glad that it was MICHELLE and not MICHAELE (Salahi) at this State Dinner! :)

Did they really have steak, lobster and apple pie (I luuurve apple pie la mode)? Now I am craving steak.Yes they did. Evidently the Chinese delegation specifically requested an "all-American" dinner. Here's the menu (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/01/19/china-state-dinner-menu-obama-hu-jintao_n_811274.html). It all sounds delicious -- but I'd pass on the creamed spinach! :P

Michelle also attended the state luncheon -- an article about that (http://eatocracy.cnn.com/2011/01/19/yo-yo-ma-balsamic-ice-cream-and-plum-blossoms-at-the-state-department-luncheon/), also with a menu.

Seems like someone at Reuters can't tell their Michelle's from one another. What a goof! (http://news.yahoo.com/nphotos/slideshow/photo//110120/ids_photos_ts/r283798802.jpg/) :rofl:

Did any woman beside Michelle wear a short cocktail dress?Yes, Anna Wintour did. I think that Michelle was being very diplomatic in wearing a semi-formal outfit -- she wanted to make President Hu Jintao feel comfortable about his own less than formal attire (http://blogs.wsj.com/scene/2011/01/20/what-to-wear-to-a-state-dinner/). ;) :P That Michelle -- always so diplomatic. :D

I would definitely take a "bandage" layer off the hem for any other use of this dress. I luuurves it. She does look a lot more glamorous than most others.

agreed :) and lol @ it being because the light is reflecting off the dress and shoes.

I believe this is an Herve Leger. Good for her for wearing such an interesting dress to an official function.

Yes, it looks like a Leger's bandage dress that many Hollywood starlets seem to favor these days. I like that Michelle's dress is neither too tight nor too Hollywood.

Michelle looks stunning. Shades of 'Fields of Gold'. It's so cool that whenever Chinese dignitaries visit the US, we get to see the Kween at her most tiffed :lol:...and lots of other great Chinese Americans, too!

Vera looks like she stole the crypt keeper title from Peggy Fleming.

Re: kween, just one word - WOW.


Very sweet of B. D. Wong to bring his mother, who I am sure must have been thrilled to attend, but it would have been interesting and rather timely if he and his partner (who, I guess, stayed home with their child) could have attended.

Yeah, I was wondering if he was still with whoever he was with.

She does look great, but I feel kind of bad. To me, she looks like an Asian version of Vanna White. :lol:

I'm not sure what this means but I think she looks fabulous. Love the dress too.

Michelle's is the picture posted on the Washington Post's gossip site about the dinner.

So was Vera Wang (http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/07ya8RpdID1AV/x610.jpg)

Why oh why can fashion designers not dress themselves to save their lives? :scream:

I thought the idea of Kwan's dress was good, but it looked to me like it was made out of bacofoil. :slinkaway

Vera Wang is actually a good dresser in real life, she rocks a lady-like look. But she wears a lot of watercolor colors which makes her look washed-out. As for fashion designers who can't dress themselves to save their lives, that title belongs to Miuccia Prada, she's famous for not even trying and admitting it.

I can't wait until the day when Michelle Kwan hosts a WH formal dinner party herself...and not as a First Lady!

Oh boo, it actually has quite a few things I don't like: goat cheese, glazed carrots and onions in buttermilk (how on earth are they crisp in buttermilk? :eek:) Good thing I wasn't invited :P.
