They danced to the Etta James song "At Last" before celebrities and supporters alike at the Neighborhood Ball. Obama asked the crowd, "How good looking is my wife?"
The new president said the ball, for people who live in Washington area, best captures the spirit of his campaign. He said that's because we all are neighborhood people.
Michelle Obama, our nation's new First Lady has appeared in a one-shouldered white chiffon ball gown by young designer, Jason Wu. So many fashionistas (Robert Verde`--who wears SUNGLASSES on his bald head at all times) suggested that her choice was "safe". Hmmm. Did he want her in a J.Lo-cut-down-to-there dress?
She looks lovely and graceful. And I LOVE the white tie with the President's tuxedo. So very handsome and distinguished...and cool.
