    President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama wait for the arrival of Nordic Leaders to arrival on the North Portico for a State Dinner at the White House in Washington, Friday, May 13, 2016.

    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 skirt. 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.
