Michelle Obama made a special appearance at the American Portrait Gala to commemorate her close friend Lin-Manuel Miranda . The former first lady of the United States attended the annual gala night held at the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery in Washington to present the actor and composer of Broadway the museum's Portrait of a Nation Award.
"I met Lin more than a decade ago when he came to the White House to present the opening number of what he described as a 'concept album,'" she said on stage. "And let me tell you, I've become one of Lin's biggest fans. I've been a fan of Lin for years. I think I've seen his production three times, maybe more, but I'm not here tonight just because of Lin's accomplishments." on stage or at the movies. I'm here because Lin believes it is his duty to elevate the people around him, especially our young people. "
For the occasion, she wore a vibrant yellow couture dress from Schiaparelli , with diamonds and her hair in soft waves. Inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli's affinity for vibrant colours and couture-level construction, designer Daniel Roseberry sought to create a dress that could stand out and complement the former first lady's personality.
