Michelle Watch: Jason Wu Wins The Big Night
We just got word that Michelle Obama’s ivory, one-shoulder gown was made for her by young New York designer and CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund finalist Jason Wu. The one-of-a-kind silk chiffon dress is embellished all over with Swarovski crystals, floaty bits of organza and silver thread embroidery and was custom made by Wu. According to WWD, the designer is just as surprised as we were. So what’s the verdict? It’s a lovely, fresh color for Mrs. Obama and the embellishment is quite pretty, but the full skirt could have been slightly more flattering and seemed to give her a little trouble while navigating a dance at the Home States Ball. Let us know what you think. Yea or nay?
