Fashion and food. Two of my favorite things. Throwing in bit of politics is not a bad thing either, at least for me, but at the forefront of the occasion was the Atelier Versace designs. Both First Lady Michelle Obama and Italian Prime Minister’s wife Agnese Landini chose to wear the revered fashion house’s designs, and the fashion elite nodded in approval if you scan the internet and news this morning.
Speaking of food, as it was a state dinner to honor the Italian head of state, Mario Batali was chosen to cook the meal for the final grand occasion of the Obama Presidency with the collaboration of White House executive chef Cristeta Comerford and executive pastry chef Susan Morrison.
