Inaugural gown by Jason Wu – New York designer

After months of speculation, at last we know: Michelle Obama has chosen New York designer Jason Wu to create her inaugural night gown. This is not the first time Obama has worn one of the 26-year-old’s designs—she picked one of his dresses last November for a interview with Barbara Walters. Tonight’s piece—an elaborate, one-shoulder, floor-length white chiffon gown is fairy-like, filled with ruffles and sparkles and reportedly costs $3,500. No matter what the country thinks about the dress—and you can be sure, they will think a lot—we already know how Mrs. Obama’s husband feels. When the couple entered the Neighborhood Ball tonight, President Barack Obama announced, “First of all, how good-looking is my wife?”


“Michelle Obama dazzled on the dance floor in an elegant, one-shouldered ivory gown embellished with Swarovski crystal rhinestones. It was a modern yet classic look that will stand the test of time.”—Joe Berean, fashion director,

She wore Jason Wu when she was interviewed by Barbara Walters.  See previous post.  They are a beautiful couple.
