The First Lady wore a beautiful Gucci dress to the White House dinner 2 nights ago. This is the first time she wore a non-American designer dress. She looks breathtaking in this striking pink and green gown. It does have a Christmas feel to it. Many wondered if the reason for the choice of an Italian designer was to show her support for Italian Prime Minister, Matteo Renzi who announced his resignation after voters rejected his constitutional reform plans. Perhaps fashion is used as a strategic tool to convey diplomatic messages?
