On Tuesday night, Barack and Michelle Obama held their final state dinner as President and First Lady. The couple hosted Italian prime minister Matteo Renzi and his wife Agnese Landini plus a guest list of 382 VIPs (including Jerry Seinfeld and Chance the Rapper), for a meal prepared by chef Mario Batali, the Washington Post reports.
Michelle’s sparkling chain mail gown — custom-designed by Italian fashion icon Donatella Versace, according to the New York Times — wasn’t just a subtle nod to the guest country. It was also just plain stunning.
First Lady fans across the Internet reacted to the dress with adoration:
I’m just going to aggressively like every picture of Michelle Obama in that chainmail dress I see, OK

On Tuesday, the President told a crowd at an arrival ceremony that, for their 14th state dinner as a couple, he and Michelle had “saved the best for last,” the Post reported.
When it came to Michelle’s dress, at least, they definitely weren’t kidding.
