has been riding a wave of increasing exposure and sales since Michelle Obama wore his white gown to the inauguration balls, so why mess with a good thing? Held at Robert De Niro's Greenwich Hotel, Wu's Resort show was full of reliably pretty dresses, among them a print chiffon frock peeking from underneath a navy trench and a short strapless number in three-dimensional petals. What really felt fresh, though, was the lemon silk shantung blazer that he opened with, as well as the blue tweed pantsuit he sent out a little later on. They weren't necessarily the first pieces of tailoring Wu has ever put on the runway, but they conveyed a message. The Swarovski Award for Womenswear nominee (he'll vie for the prize on June 15 against Alexander Wang and Thakoon Panichgul) is clearly intent on expanding his range.
