Last April 28, Michelle Obama, the wife the US President looked particularly stunning in a full length purple gown from Tadashi Shoji at a White House State dinner. The First Lady paid tribute to Japan who was being honored by the formal state dinner by wearing a Japan-born designer’s stylish gown.
Michelle Obama was her usual stylish and fashionable self in the sleeveless purple gown with a lace bodice and tulle skirt detailing. The First Lady certainly stole the show even if it was the President who was hosting the state dinner in honor of the Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
To show off the gorgeous lace detailing on the bodice, the US First Lady wore her hair up with soft curls framing her face. This gave her the elegant and sophisticated look without too much effort. Everyone was certainly proud of the First Lady’s latest look.
This was not the first time that Michelle Obama wore a Tadashi Shoji but this elaborate purple was the best look ever. In early April, Michelle Obama wore a black and white dress with mesh detailing from Tadashi Shoji’s Resort 2015 Collection for the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
Because of his formal evening wear designs, Tadashi Shoji has become a red carpet favorite of celebrities that include Kate Beckinsale, Nicole Ritchie and Octavia Spencer. In fact, Octavia Spencer recently wore a creation by Tadashi Shoji to the 2015 Oscar awards.
If you want to copy the purple gown with lace pattern and tulle skirt worn by the US First Lady, you can check out Tadashi Shoji Embroidered Lace Sheath Dress in Deep Amethyst. It is not the same gown as the one worn by Michelle Obama but it is a similar style in a beautiful, chic and fitted silhouette.
