The visit to Cuba by President Barack Obama and the First Family marked the first time a sitting U.S. president visited the country in 88 years.

Herrera was born in 1939 in Caracas, Venezuela, and later became a naturalized citizen of the U.S.

She is famous for having dressed First Ladies, including Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, who she began creating clothes for starting in 1982.

The First Lady wore a dress by the same designer to a 2014 state dinner in honor of French President François Hollande.

She again wore a dress designed by Herrera to greet the Pope in Washington, D.C. in September.

FLOTUS has become well-known for her amazing wardrobe, and many people wanted to know where they could get it.

That's cool and all, but what I really want to know is where to buy @FLOTUS' dress. https://t.co/Y9JIDNIkSa

The dress Michelle Obama wore to the The State Of The Union this year sold out online before the event was even over.

Sasha and Malia also wore A-line dresses Sunday, matching their mom.

In case you're interested, Sasha's dress appears to be this $385 dress by Shoshanna, while Malia's dress is a deal at just $48 from ASOS.
