President Obama and FLOTUS Host Prime Minister Lee Hsien of Singapore And His Wife Ho Ching For State Dinner

(SL) – 200 Guests including the First Lady’s brother Craig and his wife, Steve Jobs’ widow and her boyfriend former DC Mayor Adrian Fenty, Chrisette Michelle (who also performed) and her date, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser and her date Jason Turner along with others were present at the white house for the 12th state dinner of President Obama’s administration.

A ‘Celebration of Summer Bounty’ marked the 50th anniversary of bilateral relations between the U.S. and the city-state, which Obama refers to as an anchor for the U.S. presence in Southeast Asia.


Sticking to her support of American designers, Michelle looked stunning in her custom made Brandon Maxwell gown. Maxwell, originally from Longview, Texas, became a household name because of his work with Lady Gaga, but has also dressed stars including Gwyneth Paltrow and Uma Thurman.
