Michelle Obama chose Carolina Herrera to design the blue and black gown she wore to the state dinner honoring French President Francois Hollande.

The first lady appeared Tuesday at the White House in the full-skirted dress as she and President Barack Obama greeted Hollande. The White House confirmed it was a Herrera gown and the Venezuelan-American designer soon afterward put out a news release saying she made the dress at her New York atelier.

The gown featured a black hand-sewn and beaded embroidery applique top that came to Obama's elbows. She wore it over a blue corset and long liberty blue skirt and train that billowed behind her as she walked. The dress had a wide black velvet belt detail.
