I was ecstatic to hear Michelle Obama chose a dress by designer Jason Wu for the inaugural balls. So fresh, so new, so pretty! White definitely complements her well, and wasn’t the silk chiffon beautiful? My fav parts were the hand-stitched appliques and one-shoulder style that made it all look like a fairy tale.
Jason Wu’s been on the scene for a few years (although he’s only 26, sheesh!) and those in fashion have definitely seen and felt his presence (and I’m so sure by now he’s tired of all the plays on words with his last name, but I couldn’t resist).
His designs are always tailored and ladylike – perfect for a first lady, no? Ever since Michelle sported Thakoon and J.Crew (two completely opposite labels!), I’ve had my eye on her style. I won’t compare her to anyone because she’s unique, but I will say so long to that Fashion Week invite for Jason Wu – whew! Crowds will be lined up.
