First Couple Open White House Doors for Dinner

By: Matt Donnelly / February 23, 2009

Hollywood’s cute and all with it’s tiny awards ceremony, but the First Couple made a serious show for glamour over the weekend.

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted their first fancy White House affair, a dinner for the National Governor’s Association.

Michelle stopped traffic in a deep purple Peter Soronen gown, strapless with sparkling detail and an oversized necklace of pearls and crystals by Tom Binns.

The President looks handsome in his tux, for sure, but keep the Michelle Obama fashion coming!

We can’t wait to see if she turns up in looks from her favorite young designers that recently showed in New York Fashion Week.
