Pretty in Pink: Michelle Obama and Desirée Rogers

Last week, people from Fashion Ave to Hollywood to Political heavy weights attended the much anticipated White House Correspondents' Dinner. President Obama won rave reviews for his gift of humor and comedic timing. His jokes and sometime self-deprecating humor was much more tasteful than Wanda Sykes' "shock and awe performance". Fashiona, like her Facebook friends, were wondering just who invited her...

The guest list was 2500 deep
, included a well-heeled Kerry Washington

Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder and Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Designers included were:
human muppet Donnatella Versace, Kenneth Cole, Jason Wu, and Narciso Rodriguez.

The First Lady, Michelle Obama, shined in a sleeveless pink Michael Kors dress and her partner in crime White House Social Secretary Desirée Rogers in a pink full-length Halston Dress.

Now Fashiona usually not a fan of grown women wearing pink...give these looks the proper kudos they deserve.

The (sometimes fan of Michelle's outfits) Fashion Industry is even honoring the First Lady on June 15 at this year's CFDA awards...nice!!

Hey, I love wearing pink. And the new shade of pink that is really trendy for Spring-Summer. Is Neon Hot Pink. I have seen it everywhere from shoes to coats. And I am a victim of buying two items. I also have a cute pink sandal by Betsey Johnson.

I think these two sophisticated women look great in their different shades of pink.
