The first lady of both the U.S. and style stole the show with a strapless ivory gown custom-made by designer Brandon Maxwell.

The up-and-coming designer got his big break earlier this year when Lady Gaga wore one of his gowns at the Oscars. It was the first time Michelle Obama wore one of his dresses.

Maxwell, 31, who was out of the country on business, took to Instagram to share the proud moment with his team.

 

A very proud moment for me and my team. ❤️
