Friday evening, First Lady Michelle Obama almost broke the internet when photos began to surface of her looking stunning at the White House dinner for Chinese President Xi Jinping.

FLOTUS chose an off-the-shoulder mermaid gown by a Chinese-American designer Vera Wang with her long hair swept off to one side, and social media collectively gasped in appreciation.

President Obama, in usual fashion, smiled on proudly as the world took in his gorgeous wife.

It all started with this post.

And then the adoration came flooding in.
