First Lady in Red

-------

We may as well start calling Jason Wu FDOTUS. After wearing Thom Browne and Reed Krakoff to President Obama’s Inauguration today, Michelle Obama donned a custom scarlet Jason Wu gown to the Commander-in-Chief Ball this evening. Indeed, it’s a surprise that the First Lady chose Wu again (MOBama wore a white Jason Wu gown in 2009, making him a household name), as many fashion followers expected (and, perhaps, hoped) that she would anoint yet another new talent with her Inaugural gown selection. But if the pictures from tonight’s event are any indication, Wu’s cherry velvet and chiffon gown (worn with Jimmy Choo shoes and Forevermark Diamond bangles) was a winning pick. A designer has not created back-to-back inaugural gowns since James Galanos dressed Nancy Reagan in 1981 and 1985.

    I must say I was surprised, thought she would have gone with another designer. You go WU!
