Dudes. I don't know how much gravitas I'm supposed to employ whilst discussing the comeliness of the first lady, especially on a day as loaded with political significance as today, but whatever the occasion, whatever the time, regardless of whatever other people wore to the White House Correspondents' Dinner, there is just no denying that Mobama looked RIDIC HOT. Right? It's basically insane. Let's break down the stats.

First of all, sure, those arms. We've been admiring that yoga divot right after the shoulder muscle for multiple seasons, so I won't dawdle there, but she's wearing a fascinating Halston dress from, like, two years ago. It's notable because it features a HELLA deep V, but it's exceptionally elegant due to its muted puce color and silky sheen. There's SOME glinting but only the amount that indicates that the dress is classy and VERY expensive. I will not delve too deeply into whatever undergarments she is working with for fear of gaucheness, but I gotta say, that kind of bias-cut fabric betrays EVERYTHING. So the fact that she's not lumpy or weirdly foamy displays a great deal of expertise. Twenty-seven points.

The hair? Extraordinary. A good eye-swoop in the front for utmost sexiness, and the large curls bring up the bob so that it not only looks as occasion appropriate as an updo but is just a lot less formal and fussy. And it's short enough that you can not only see the silver and rose gold earrings but the texture and bounce actually accentuate the curved silhouette of the jewelry as well. Eighteen points.

The necklaces however, make the look for me, and here's why. Yo, how many times can you ACTUALLY say you've seen a woman of a certain age and level of importance (who is NOT an actress or fashion designer) NAIL on-trend jewelry this hard? The layered chains (all her jewelry is by Irit Design BTW) are awesome, and the dripping portion that calls attention (but not too much attention) to her décolletage is resoundingly smoking. Forty-five bajillion points. Bonus points for being the EXACT right level of boob-ish.

Nicely done, Michelle Obama. You command the respect of those around you as your man commands the searing envy and bile of dudes around you both.

Not all high notes at the 44th Annual Country Music Awards held in Nashville last night happened during the ceremony. Some of the best moments happened on the red carpet. The fashion standouts ranged from crooners like LeAnn Rimes to country music-loving actresses like Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester. Here are the five best looks of the night.

Being an awards show host is the best job. Carrrie Underwood, who cohosted with country music singer Brad Paisley, wore seven different outfits during the ceremony (lucky her!). But our favorite remains her red carpet dress — a Talbot Runhof strapless, multi-tiered gown made with layers of gunmetal gray tulle.

Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester shined in a fun and flirty patterned dress by Emilio Pucci. We love that her gown and train didn't cover up her fierce platform sandals.

LeAnn Rhimes, who presented the nights first award to Lady Antebellum, was one of the only stars who dared to go short in a cute Ports 1961 dress, which she paired with peep-toe booties, a wallet-size silver clutch, and oxidized sterling silver and pave diamond stud earrings and snake ring by Irit Design.

Gwyneth Paltrow's live singing debut of 'Country Strong' was just as remarkable as her red carpet appearance, where she wore Atelier Versace beaded ombré, one-shoulder cutout gown with a slit-to-there. What can't this woman do?

American Idol alum Kellie Pickler provided some of the night's biggest sparkle in a Pamella Roland gold paillette plunging V-neck cap sleeve gown.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
