Nobel Peace Prize - Torchlight Procession

A banquet was among the festivities that the First Couple was invited to as a part of President Obama’s receiving the Nobel Peace Prize. For the occassion, the First Lady picked a pale blue evening gown and matching jacket by designer Azzedine Alaïa. The gown has a relatively simple top with double straps on each shoulder and beading around the trim, but from there it gets interesting. There is a wide sequined band separating the top from the skirt, which is composed of alternating bands of sequins and pleated fabric. Mrs. Obama accented the outfit with satin pumps, and very modern, long, dangling earrings.

On Friday, First Lady Michelle Obama was in Oslo, Norway with her husband, as he was being honored with the Nobel Peace Prize.  For the occassion, the First Lady wore a stunning gold jacket and dress, paired with a yellow scarf.  On her feet were a pair of simple gold pumps.  The ensemble left her looking positively regal!

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama Dance at the Nobel Banquet

Yesterday President Obama received the Nobel Peace Prize, and his lovely bride was on hand to dance the night away with him. Mrs. Obama wore a silver floor length evening gown with what must have been quite the heels underneath, as she looks taller than Barack in the photo!

While it is not entirely certain who designed the First Lady’s ensemble (there’s a matching jacket in some photos I’ll post later), Mrs. O seems to have a strong belief that it is the work of Azzedine Alaia.
