Barack Obama, the “45th president” of the United States, was spotted at the 2013 Commander-In-Chief’s Inaugural Ball at the Washington Convention Center on Monday night (January 21). The POTUS was accompanied by his 49-year-old wife Michelle Obama at the celebration. Also attending the exciting night were Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Brad Paisley, John Legend, Katy Perry, Mana, Smokey Robinson, and Usher. The couple looked very much in love as they danced to Jennifer Hudson‘s rendition of the classic song “Let’s Stay Together” during the night. Both Barack and Michelle Obama were well dressed for the big moment. The 51-year-old president looked dapper in his tuxedo with a white tie. Meanwhile, his First Lady donned a custom-made Jason Wu gown to the inauguration balls. Michelle Obama’s dress, which put her arms and shoulders on display, was cinched at her waist, really showing off her figure. With a low cut in the back, the red gown showed a bit more skin than one might expect to see from a First Lady. Michelle Obama combined the dress with a handmade diamond embellished ring by jewelry designer Kimberly McDonald. She accessorized her ensemble with shoes designed by Jimmy Choo and completed her look with her hair loosely tousled for the special night.
