While Speaker of the House John Boehner announced his resignation with a presumably tear-soaked statement, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama reminded everyone that they are and forever will be the Flyest First Couple in history by wowing at a White House state dinner honoring the visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping on Friday night.
The glamorous affair featured five-star dining, a performance by R&B star Ne-Yo, and was attended by the entertainment and political elite, including “Empire” co-creator and Oscar-nominee Lee Daniels, ballerina Misty Copeland, and political scientist Henry Kissinger, USAToday.com reports.
However, The Obamas effortlessly stole the spotlight as photos and praise for the first fashions nearly broke the Internet. Mrs. Obama slayed in a custom black mermaid gown by Vera Wang with side-swept tresses. The President looked extremely dapper in the standard tuxedo. Is it weird to feel a little more secure knowing our President and First Lady are the coolest leaders in the free world?
I didn’t think so.
