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, InStyle.com.

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