Michelle Obama was a vision in white for the White House State Dinner in honor of Singapore's Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his wife on Tuesday night. For the star-studded black-tie event, the ever-fashionable First Lady turned to Lady Gaga's fashion director, Brandon Maxwell.

Maxwell created an eye-catching custom, strapless ivory sponge crepe gown with a dramatic neckline that flowed into a split train for the FLOTUS. And based on the below photo, her husband, President Obama, was a big fan of the look.

The First Lady looked stunning with her hair pulled back in a sleek low chignon and a pair of statement earrings. The clean lines and striking silhouette of the modern ballgown are reminiscent of the Oscars dress Maxwell designed for Gaga earlier this year. A relative newcomer to the fashion scene, Maxwell has quickly made his way into the hearts of some of the world's most stylish ladies, including supermodel Karlie Kloss, whom he dressed (also in white) for the 2016 Met Gala.
