First Lady Ball Gowns in the Smithsonian

Mamie Eisenhower's Inaugural ballgown dress

Martha Washington's Dress

Painted Silk Dress

Today we went to the American History Smithsonian museum and went through the section with all the First Ladies' inaugural ball gowns. They were amazing. Every single one was designed very intricately with lots of beading and lace.
