Stylish first lady Michelle Obama has a purple patch

Friday October 14, 2011

Michelle Obama looked spectacular Thursday at a state dinner held for South Korean President Lee Myung-bak.

In a floor-length purple gown she greeted the South Korean first lady – Kim Yoon-ok – and, with Barack Obama, welcomed their guests inside to the White House from the torrential rain that began as everyone arrived.

Even though the dresses and suits were dotted with raindrops, the air of excitement remained as the invitees filtered through into the magnificent East Room. 

There the South Korean president and his wife enjoyed a sumptuous meal inspired by the cultures of both America and Korea.
