The midnight blue guipure lace textured jacquard A-line with three-quarter sleeves was a variation of a dress from Lhuilllier’s 2015 fall collection, with customized sleeve length and side details.

Philippine-born and Catholic faith-bred Lhuillier told media the occasion was more meaningful for her having been raised a Catholic.

“This milestone, Pope Francis’ first visit to this country is very monumental. It was perfect and I think the dress looks beautiful on her and so appropriate and flattering. It really was a wonderful moment for me, having been raised Catholic,” Lhuillier shared with media.

Lhuillier celebrated the moment by sending e-mails of photos of the FLOTUS wearing her creation to her mother in the Philippines who was celebrating her birthday.
