The Obamas gathered yesterday for dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande and Michelle made sure she made an unforgettable statement in her dazzling blue and black gown.

Michelle, 50, wore an elegant long powder blue gown connected with a flowered lace top and elegant train. The dress swooped in at the middle with a black waist band and flourished at the bottom like a traditional wedding dress.

The mom of two flaunted her famous, shapely arms in quarter lace sleeves and kept her chest bare of any jewelry as she showed off her extremely well polished bosom.

Obama's wife kept it light with the makeup and jewelry and only wore what highlighted her sleek dress. She wore blue diamond round hoop like earrings, various diamond rings and silver nails to match the shimmer in her gown.

Mrs. Obama glowed as she walked with husband President Obama, who wore a simple black tux to let his First Lady steal the show.
