At the Annual White House Correspondence Dinner last night in Washington DC, there was an abundance of flair and famous funny moments. From a proverbial “roasting” of Donald Trump by President Barack Obama and comedian/host, Seth Meyers of SNL, to the “elegant meets edgy” of First Lady, Michelle Obama, this dinner was a night to remember.

So what does one wear to a dinner where one of your beloved husband’s most recent adversaries is in attendance? A feminine gown, and warrior diamond jewelry fit to go into battle if necessary – what else?! 😉

The first lady wore a dusty rosey cocoa  colored gown from the Halston Fall 2008 collection….

…and accessorized her look with exquisite jewelry from Irit Design.

Irit jewelry is edgy, yet uber feminine, and we love the juxtaposition of the accessories and soft sillouette of the gown. Pair that with her curly do, and it’s a nice look for the First Lady.Very smart styling, as a brown dress on brown skin definitely needs something to make it pop to avoid the possibility of looking drab and/or washed out. She looks stunning.
