Yes, Canada has fashion designers, and the first ladies wore them to the state dinner

For the state dinner in honor of Canada on Thursday, first lady Michelle Obama turned to the designer of both her inaugural gowns, Jason Wu, who was born in Taiwan and raised in Vancouver. Drawing from his fall 2016 collection, which he presented on the runway last month in New York, Wu created a full-length strapless gown in navy silk with a romantic floral print.

It was a dress that acknowledged the importance and grandeur of the evening without the weight of stodgy, overwrought formality.
