    Vera Wang's own dress choices have seemed rather to me.

    Aren't costume and fashion designers notoriously bad dressers? Or did I make that stereotype up?

    Sarah Hughes often seems to favor cocktail dresses that are just an inch or two too short, but Michelle Kwan seems to just as often go for ones just a bit too long. This is a beautiful dress -- and she's got the figure for it -- but I think it would be absolutely spectacular just above the knee.

    Perhaps in a different setting. But above the knee might be pushing propriety at a state dinner where a long gown is the norm.

    Anna Wintour looks pretty harsh too in the photograph from the dinner. I don't think that hairstyle does her many favors, and the jacket on the dress is meh. And she's supposed to be the queen (or wicked witch) of fashion.

    I thought about that too but then this is a State dinner. Not sure about the above the knee hemline policy.

    Well, I heard that Michelle had smuggled in a piece of chocolate cake--guess security was half-baked.

    Michelle Obama's dress was interesting but I thought she could have left out the black wrap. I suspect His Excellency The President of China dyes his hair.

    In the same way that hairstylists tend to have bad hair, I guess.

    As for Michelle, she looks amazing!

    I wonder who she was seated with?

    Good excuse for missing any morning classes tomorrow, though. (But maybe students don't take classes during their final semester, and instead write papers or a thesis?)

    Did they really have steak, lobster and apple pie (I luuurve apple pie à la mode)? Now I am craving steak.

    Kudos to MK for realizing that this outfit absolutely cannot take any more bling and limiting it to the small earrings.

    Slightly better pic at wsj -- better color balance too

    Kwan is in pic 16

    I'm a little surprised that she is featured in almost every pictorial for the dinner. (Though she's a whole lot more glamorous than most any of the wives of the financial kingpins invited.)

    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.
