President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama welcome Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his wife Mrs. Lee Hsien Loong to the White House in Washington.
Michelle chose Brandon Maxwell's ivory column gown for the occasion.
The first lady wore her hair pinned back in a sleek updo.
The black-tie dinner in honor of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his wife, Ho Ching, was the 12th state dinner for the Obamas.
It also marked the 50th anniversary of bilateral relations between the U.S. and Singapore, an island nation of about 5.7 million people.
