Michelle Obama turns golden girl for Indian welcome

Wednesday November 25, 2009

No wonder Barack Obama can't keep his eyes off her.

America's first lady Michelle made a stunning appearance at the presidential residence this week in a gorgeous gold gown.

On hand to welcome the Indian prime minister Manmohan Singh to the White House, the mum-of-two was on glittering form.

In a special tribute to her Asian guests, Michelle's outfit was designed by Indian-born Naeem Khan and made in India.

And the admiration from her husband was clear for all to see as he stole glances at her throughout the evening.

The US leader received his own fair share of praise too, though.

"Your journey to the White House has captured the imagination of millions and millions of people in India," Mr Singh said before toasting his host.

"You are an inspiration to all those who cherish the values of democracy, diversity and equal opportunity."
