Ok, all you Michelle Obama naysayers ... So if you didn't like Michelle's white one-shoulder gown, how did you feel about Jill Biden's red strapless dress?
I just loved it. I think the best part was that she picked a silhouette that showed off a little of what seems to be an awesome body. She's got a great shoulders and arms and she wasn't afraid to let the world see them (and she's 57!). The dress got a little sexy with the horseshoe shaped dip at her bust but then it was back to business with the high waist.
The other reason I liked it? I'm a serious sucker for a red gown, especially to an event like an inaugural ball. It just feels festive and celebratory.
By the way, Lebanese designer Reem Acra made the dress. Acra is known for her amazing gowns, including her stunning wedding dresses, that help women accentuate their best features.
