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.

    These photos have been photoshopped BIG TIME. They’ve cut Michelle’s figure by about 2 sizes.

    I think they looked beautiful. Loved the dress and her earlier ensemble.

    Not sure if this was already pointed out, but I think you have your Inauguration Balls mixed up. Beyonce performed At Last at the Neighborhood Ball for their first dance.

    Obama as president almost makes me which I was an American. No offense to you Americans but Obama will change the US to be more like Canada and our public health care. You all need it desperately.

    This family will make so many changes to America that he will be the greatest thing in history by far!

    All you McCain supporters out there… I hope you all realize that this is not about celebrities. I hope you all soon will come to realize what his changes will bring and support this president and please don’t tell your children that you once supported for McCain.

    she looked ok, the dress not so much. I would have liked to have seen her in more dramatic color. I wanted her to make an entrance and have everyone say ..WOW!! But she looked ok.

    Didn’t really like the dress. It looks like it should have been strapless or something. It’s just off a little somehow. And Michelle kept having to mess with it, constantly hiking the bottom up when she danced and walked. It looked like it would be a pain to wear. But, even so, I like the Obamas and wish them well.

    Number 6, you are such an ignoramus. The balls are not govt. sponsored, so your taxes were not used to stage any ball. These are balls sponsored by private individuals and groups – with the execption of maybe the Armed Forced Ball. You should not talk nonsense just for an opportunity to hate on the Obamas.

    Michelle totally rocked yesterday — the daytime outfit and color were sensational; in the evening she was really the belle of the ball. Absolutely agree with the former poster — it’s terrific that she’s going with unsung designers like the great Isabel Toledo and Jason Wu. Ralph, Donna, Calvin and Oscar are wonderful, but it’s time for a change!

    hrhkat @ 01/21/2009 at 2:16 am 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

    As you said, the gown did not show up well on TV.

    “The one-of-a-kind silk chiffon confection was embellished with organza rosettes, Swarovski crystal rhinestones and silver embroidery.

    The first lady accessorized with diamond chandelier earrings, a white gold and diamond ring and a stack of diamond bangles by jeweler Loree Rodkin. ”

    does anyone else notice that he poses on the top step while she’s on the lower step to make himself appear taller than her? funny stuff.

    I love the way Barack Obama loves Michele Obama. Finally, romance is back at the White House. They are a very romantic couple.

    I doubt she is a size 14..more like a 10.

    Ali Says:

    Although I think she is wonderful, this dress was not my favorite. It seemed like prom dress rather than an inaugural dress. Something in color with a little more elegance/sparkle would have been nice. But mostly, her dancing in it at 10 balls should have been considered. The train got sooooo tiresome after a while – that they couldn’t really move because of the train. And by the end, it looked like she just wanted to cut it off. Bad thinking on the designer’s part. All in all, she is fabulous, though. Love this family.

    The ball gown was pretty!

    And the colour of her inaugural outfit was chartreuse! Now yellow or lemon grass. LOL
