The First Lady and Anna Wintour shared a stage today for a most momentous occasion. Michelle Obama was given the task of officially opening the Anna Wintour Costume Center at the MET, ahead of tonight’s annual MET gala.
Michelle Obama took to the stage wearing a heavily embellished Naeem Khan dress. She paired her dress with some enormous golden scissors. Ok, we can’t really call that accessorizing as she was using the scissors to cut the enormous banner opening the event.
Seems Michelle Obama wasn’t the only guest of honour in the room. The industry’s finest were all present to see the opening of the new center, from Ralph Lauren to J. Crew’s Jenna Lyons. And according to the picture below, a certain Victoria Beckham may have also been present.
