Tuesday night marked the last State Dinner the Obamas would ever host in the White House.* And it should come as no surprise that Michelle "Dat FLOTUS style tho" Obama sparkled like the queen she is in a gorgeous rose gold chain mail (!!!) Atelier Versace dress.
This final dinner was attended by more guests than any of the previous 12 dinners the Obamas have hosted, and Tuesday morning President Obama said that he'd "saved the best for last."
Among the guests were Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his wife, Mrs. Agnese Landini, House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Gwen Stefani (who performed after dinner) and her boyfriend Blake Shelton, Frank Ocean, and Chance Bennett, a.k.a. Chance the Rapper, who remarked as he was entering that he was hoping for some dancing, referencing "the recurring dance battle that me and the president have had going on for a few years."
But enough about the guests, let's talk about the real star of the night—Michelle and that exquisite dress.

Mrs. Obama has brought so much style to the White House over the last eight years. No matter who becomes president in November, there's no way either first lady, Melania Trump or Bill Clinton, will be dazzling us with such impeccable panache.
Mrs. Obama has taken some fashion risks over the years, and while not all of her looks have been unanimous hits, there's no doubt that her clothing game is pretty impressive. This was her first time wearing Versace, and if the gown looks like it was made for her, that's because it was—Donatella Versace designed the dress specifically for the first lady.
MICHELLE, PLEASE DON'T LEAVE US!
* Unless Michelle decides to run for president at some point in the future, which would be amazing but which I would never wish on someone I like as much as her.
