Flotus Michelle Obama sparkled in a gold Naeem Khan gown for the first couple’s last awards dinner with the Congressional Black Caucus Saturday night in Washington. The first lady won applause in a strapless confection that featured a full skirt, sweetheart neckline and hand-painted gold leaf on black tulle.
President Obama was there to deliver his last speech before the the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation’s 46th annual dinner, where he took time to praise his wife.
“I’ve been so blessed to have a wife and a partner on this journey who makes it look so easy,” he said, according to the White House transcript. “And is so strong, so honest and so beautiful and so smart.”
