The Obamas Dance the Night Away

President Barack Obama and first Lady Michelle Obama dance the night away at the Home State Inaugural Ball, representing Hawaii and Illinois, held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday.

The President and First Lady danced to “At Last” by Etta James and performed by Beyonce.

First Lady Michelle Obama chose a cream-colored asymmetrical dress designed by Jason Wu. She wore a lemongrass colored outfit this afternoon during the Inauguration Ceremony.

  • Amanda

    She looks sooooo good!
    Hottest first family EVER.

  • Nice

    Great to see this …they look real genuine people

  • rachel

    They are attention seeking people
    no other president spent soo much of our money on his own celebration parties. I guess this ‘change’ will just be grreaaat…

  • woohoo

    Americans are so blind. Money is not everything. The economy will always go up and down.

  • zoe

    they look great and happy. i too wanst sure about the dress but it looks great on her. a darker colour wouldve been nicer though.

  • Cassandra

    They look so cute, I hope he does great.

  • hannah

    love her dress, very pretty!

  • not me

    it is a gorgeous gown. Nothing beats Clinton’s 1993 violet hued dress but this is so Michelle Obama, and that is what is great about her choices. They show independent spirit.

  • brie2009

    Like #4 said hottest family ever!!!!!!!!!!!

    The dress is GORGEOUS!!!!!!! Michelle just knocked out every celeb from the fashion list and put herself on top. And President Obama is looking handsome.

    A+++++ on Michelle’s dress!

  • elanenergy

    So stunning, absolutely appropriate and still very stylish (both outfits, the day dress and the evening gown). I am so pleased and grateful and optimistic that change can occur during my lifetime. Yippee!!!

  • love them

    YAY complete and utter YAY. She looks stunning and classy and dazzling. they make a gorgeous couple. god bless them. (and im not even american!)

  • malene

    man…..michelle is so ugly. poor woman.
    both outfits (yellow one in the daytime and this white gown for the balls) are ugly too.
    ugly face….ugly dresses. so i guess the dresses are therefore fashion hits.

  • malory

    #6, #18…(first 6..) seriously..I doubt they had a choice…#18. are you serious???? Michelle Obama is beautiful…not only in the outside, but she seems to be genuine on the inside.. And if you wanna go toe to toe, Laura Bush, Hillary Clinton, Barbara Bush, shall I go on? No one holds a candle to the grace and ellegence Michelle channels…

    haters…It’s a sad day for you. If you can’t be proud of our country today, then you have to be the most pesemistic heart on the planet…this country has room for you..Try and learn..give and receive..the thoughts are endless.
    God Bless America

    jelousey is a wonderful thing isnt it malene.

  • hrhkat

    Much better then the dress she had on earlier…but still not AMAZING…kinda boring and it didnt show up well on tv…

    I was hoping for something with a halter and much more sparkle, and actual color. She would have looked great in a pale pink/lime green gown….would have looked fabulous with her skin tone…pink and brown always go well together. would have been nice to see her hair pulled back and put in an up-do….she looks best with her hair up…

    but not a total loss, its was very pretty, just uninspiring…she needs a better stylist…this dress goes into the museum and she picks a foreign designer..that was dissappointing…owell….

    Jackie-O looked magical, and clinton looked great in 1993…this dress on michelle wasnt memorable…sorry…

  • tia

    lena, your Klan rally is waiting for you

    signs of the times indeed.

  • Lily

    I love her dress!

  • itzzzkimmm

    She looked entirely classy. Everything about her is fabulous. This couple is just so sweet and you can just feel the love between them. They are just so genuine. I love them!! She rocked the hell out of that dress!

    *28. racist folks like you are a minority getting even smaller. you’ll die miserable and lonely!

  • jolierocks

    NICE! Time for change :)

  • uh right

    Mallory???????? You can’t be serious. Never has there been a classier First Lady than Laura Bush. Ms. Obama neds some charm school classes. Bad posture, bad smile, poor fashion choices.

    *28. racist folks like you are a minority getting even smaller. you’ll die miserable and lonely!

    >>>>>>>>>>

    What no 28 doesn’t realise is that racism is bad for everyone, even people like it who think they are better.

    -
    A society or a nation is a whole system. Racism infects the system like a cancer. It corrupts the system and if you live and operate within the system, you will also be infected. Don’t believe me?

    -
    Check out south africa during apartheid. Sure the white south africans thought they had it good. But there were costs – and one of the costs was that these white south africans always lived in fear.

    -
    Another cost? To be a racist, you must squash a part of your innocence and idealism. What do I mean? Well, take young children who are both, innocent and idealistic. Children don’t judge someone by his colour or race etc until they are taught to do so. Children simply see another human being and judge that person accordingly.

    -
    And so if you think about it, racism exacts a steep price on all who live in a racist society, – even for the so-called winners.

  • uh right

    The only racist things that happened today was during the closing prayer. Racism is a TWO way street and DO NOT forget it. BE PREPARED.

  • lylian

    One last comment here. Barack Obama does seem to love his wife, Michelle. It’s lovely to see this affection.

    Too bad that I didn’t have the chance to see it. I only have CNN and I think that they stopped to show live like 9.00 PM in swedish time. But she looks gorgeous!
    And I can’t believe what some people are saying.. it’s a very good change, the US really needs a good change (but I don’t think that people who lives in the US [not everybody] don’t see that the country mush have to change to the better) and Obama is the right one! Sorry for saying this, but people gotta change their mind and dont be such a retards.. oh my, get over the whole black/white thing and everything. I can’t believe that like one of the biggest countries with (almost) the most power are so after.. yuck.

  • ASHI

    GOD BLESS AMERICA AND ALL THE BEST FOR THE LOVELY FIRST LADY AND THE NEW PRESIDENT :):):)

  • dee

  • peaches

  • obamafan

    GORGEOUS

  • Ruth

    JJ, I would love to know WHY it is important to comment on Mrs. Obama’s dress sense. Why should this be of interest or relevant to anyone? As it happens she is a attractive woman who was dressed very appropriately for the Inauguration but are you going to publish pics of Mrs. Obama every day with the question….Yay/Nay?? This is totally ridiculous.

    As a white European woman I never believed that the United States would have a non-white President. As a child I witnessed the newscasts of the black children being bussed into schools in the south and the appalling violence and terror which occurred. I admit that I was moved to tears when President Obama was taking his oath. It is a day of celebration for all the free world and not only the United States and I pray that he will be a strong and wise leader.
    God bless America!

  • ANONNNNNN

    FUGLY. THEY ARE BOTH VERY UNATTRACTIVE. STRAIGHT UP. AND YOU ALL KNOW IT.

  • LuckyL

    Lovely. Many have said something so factual: Left over racists and haters = minority. As expected, the nastier ones are just more likely to be seen posting anonymously on the net.

    All his threads on fashion are ridiculous, when his knowledge of it is infantile, and the majority of America’s is. Do many on this thread even know she is showcasing a young AMERICAN designer and showcasing AMERICAN talent? All this yay/ nay bs just breeds nastiness. Anyway, I just had to add some love for the First Lady to combat the bigots.

  • destinylost

    #6 Comment pay attention to the news the 40 -45 million for the ignauguration was donated by People and they put out alist So it wasn’t your money that was spent :P Anyways I thought they looked really lovely as a couple.

  • NOELLE

    wow she’s stunning. I see racism is alive and well on just jared !
