The First Lady made a statement with her choice of gown for her 13th and final state dinner, wearing a glistening rose gold Atelier Versace number.

The shimmering chainmail gown was custom-made, and Michelle let the dress do the talking by wearing her hair simple and sleek with minimal accessories.

Michelle (52) wore the figure-hugging ensemble to welcome Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his wife Agnese Landini to the White House alongside husband Barack.

Celebrity guests included Jerry Seinfeld, Rachael Ray, Frank Ocean and Giorgio Armani, while Gwen Stefani performed later in the evening.

Last week, Michelle criticised presidential candidate Donald Trump in a scathing terms in a campaign for rival Hillary Cllinton.

"This was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior, and actually bragging about kissing and groping women, using language so obscene that many of us were worried about our children hearing it when we turn on the TV," she said.

"It's one of countless examples of how he has treated women his whole life."
