German Chancellor Angela Merkel is visiting the White House and Michelle Obama wasted no time finding the perfect dress for the occasion. 

The first lady's gown, glitzy and floor length was designed by Naeem Khan. The dress was ivory, v-neck and embellished with intricate bead work. Thoe gown reverted back to Mrs. Obama's favorite look, sleeveless, and showed off her famously toned arms.

The first lady had perviously worn a Khan creation at at 2009 state dinner for the Indian prime minister but that gown was largely seen as a fashion failure.

Did Khan do better this time? Pictures below.
