Michelle Obama Wore Carolina Herrera to State Dinner; 'Sports Illustrated' Models Make Flight Safety Sexy

And Topshop will host a "virtual reality" fashion show.

Michelle Obama Wore Carolina Herrera to State Dinner: For Tuesday night’s official state dinner in Washington, D.C., First Lady Michelle Obama chose a dramatic and voluminous gown by Carolina Herrera. A press release described the outfit as a “black hand-sewn beaded embroidery appliqué scallop-edged top over a liberty blue silk faille corset with a wide black velvet belt detail and liberty blue silk faille inverted pleat long skirt and train.” [The Cut]

Sports Illustrated Models Star in Flight Safety Video: “I love this in-flight safety video!” said no one ever. Air New Zealand has apparently caught on. Teaming with Sports Illustrated for its 50th anniversary, the airline has enlisted a slew of sexy models to make things a bit more entertaining and a lot more educational in their “Safety in Paradise” in-flight video. The “babes in bikinis” include Chrissy Teigen, Hannah Davis, Ariel Meredith, Jessica Gomes, and Christie Brinkley. [Fashionista]

Topshop to Live-Stream Fashion Show: Making its Fall/Winter 2014 collection debut more accessible to consumers, Topshop has announced that it will live-stream its upcoming fashion show in London. The “virtual reality” experience will happen at the retailer’s Oxford Circus flagship, promising “a 360-degree experience that will blend live action from the runway, backstage and VIP arrivals, along with views of the set design and animated features.” [WWD]
