WASHINGTON (AP) - Michelle Obama stood out in a sea of black tuxedos at Friday night’s Nordic Summit dinner, wearing a blush-colored, off-the-shoulder, floor-length gown.

The first lady chose a dress by Indian-born designer Naeem Khan for the White House dinner honoring the leaders of Sweden, Iceland, Finland, Denmark and Norway. She finished the look with gold jewelry and a wispy chignon.

The gown featured a draped bodice, cinched waist and full shirt. A single, asymmetric sleeve fell casually around the First Lady’s toned right arm.

While state dinners typically celebrate a single head of state - and Mrs. Obama often wears a gown by a designer from the country being honored - the Nordic party was a twist on typical White House protocol.

The president accidentally stepped on his wife’s dress as they made their entrance, but both still looked impeccable.
