Michelle Obama in Tom Ford
Bright juicy colors have dominated for the Spring season so it's refreshing to see a switch to pure white on the red carpet.  Perfect for the scorching summer temps, (can you say heat wave in NYC) throwing on a white dress makes almost anyone look instantly cool.   Michelle Obama (above) is the perfect example of this.  The first lady looks absolutely regal on a recent trip to Buckingham Palace wearing Tom Ford.  The criss-crossed neckline and bow around her waist are intricate details that set this gown apart from all of the rest and the opera gloves are an unexpected accessory that takes her look to the next level.

Other celebs rocking white are Whitney Port, who wore a one-shoulder Pamela Roland floor skimmer to the CFDA awards and Kim Kardashian in a draped Lanvin masterpiece.  Kerry Washington chose a shorter hemline in her Calvin Klein collection creation as did Emma Watson who wore a jeweled Marchesa sheath to the MTV Movie Awards.
