If there had to be a Queen of the "nerd prom," it would certainly be First Lady Michelle Obama. And at this year's White House Correspondents' Dinner, FLOTUS dressed the part of the most popular girl in the gym in a beaded, Chantilly lace confection by L.A.-based designer and FIDM grad, Monique Lhuillier. 

 

"I am honored @MichelleObama is wearing me to the White House correspondence dinner tonight !! She looks amazing!!! xx Monique" Lhuiller Tweeted on Saturday. 

The dress continues Obama's constant recognition of American design talent for her most high profile events, with Lhuillier joining a roster that includes Jason Wu, Maria Pinto, Kimberly McDonald and Isabel Toldeo as First Lady label alums. 

Tell us, what do you think of Mobama's gown?
