The First Lady who is well known for her style and choice of fabulous dresses for official events dazzles one again at 2014 Governors Ball, wearing American designer Dennis Basso's elegant gown. The gown was hand made in New York City. The bodice is gold and was hand beaded, the skirt is hand painted duchess satin inspired by the work of American artists. The look is similar to the one shown at February 2014 runway show (image in the sideshow) at the tents in Lincoln Center and was specifically redesigned for the First Lady. Accompanying the gown is a hand painted chiffon wrap, and a hand beaded gold clutch also created by Dennis Basso. ​
