    While some of the evening's other big stars wore black -- Sarah Jessica Parker in a voluminous Theyksens Theory dress and Anne Hathaway in slim-cut Giambattista Valli -- First Lady Michelle Obama opted for a moody, midnight blue gown by Vera Wang to fete the Kennedy Center honorees, which included Meryl Streep, Yo-Yo Ma, and Neil Diamond, among others.

    The strapless gown showed off her famous shoulders and arms, while details like a sheer panel a the bust and tons of gathered layers at the skirt elevated the whole look.
