Michelle Obama attended her 14th White House state dinner — her last as first lady — and you can bet she made it one to remember in fashion history.

On Tuesday night Michelle stepped out in a copper-colored, chain mail Versace gown. Her husband, President Barack Obama, didn't look too shabby himself.

Earlier in the afternoon, the FLOTUS opted for a fit-and-flare dress by Italian designer Giambattista Valli.

Donatella Versace said in a statement: "I am humbled and honored to have the opportunity to dress the First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama. Thank you Michelle for all of the things you have done for America and for the rest of the world, for the women in the United States and the rest of the world."

In August Michelle wore a strapless white gown by American designer Brandon Maxwell for a state dinner with Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong

The Obamas hosted Italy's Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and his wife, First Lady Agnese Landini (in an Ermanno Scervino gown) for the evening, as well as a number of Italian and American notables including Chance the Rapper, singer Frank Ocean, designer Giorgio Armani and actor Roberto Benigni. Famed Italian-American chef Mario Batali provided the menu for the dinner.
