Lady Gaga’s Designer Dressed Michelle Obama and the Result Is Stunning
Michelle Obama is undoubtedly among the most fashionable first ladies the White House has ever seen, and as her days as FLOTUS come to an end, she continues to slay. In fact, Michelle’s latest dress was designed by the same man who brings Lady Gaga’s memorable looks to life. No, we’re not talking about a Kermit the Frog-adorned dress or an all-meat outfit, but something just as much of a crowd-shocker, if only because she looked so stunning in it.
While attending last night’s state dinner in honor of Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his wife Ho Ching, Michelle stepped out in front of the cameras in a gown that was absolutely stunning. The white dress was a custom creation by Brandon Maxwell, and it was as chic as they come.
The gown was a strapless dress with a layered detail at the breast, and the waist was lightly belted before flowing down into a gorgeous skirt. With matching white drop-down earrings as the only accessory, her coordinated nails topped off the elegant look with just the right amount of edge.
Check out how the tails of the dress sweep behind her when she walks down the stairs. So lovely!
Obviously, President Obama approved as well, if his thumbs-up and impressed expression are any indication.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
