Michelle Obama with designer Jason Wu unveiled her inaugral dress at the Smithsonian today. She said some pretty sweet things about the day and the dress:

“I’ll never forget the moment that I slipped on this beautiful gown.  I remember how just luscious I felt as the president and I were announced onto the stage for the first of many dances.  And I’ll cherish that moment for the rest of my life.  And now that the crowds are gone, and the Mall is silent, and our family has settled into our new home, the White house, this gown is one of the most tangible things I have left to remember that day.  And that’s why it will always hold a special place in my heart….”

And check out Jason’s expression in the image (from USA Today). He’s looking very happily nostalgic himself, like, ahh yes, THAT dress. The one that changed my life fo’evah! One of my favorite moments from that day was when Beyonce sang the entirely appropriate Etta James classic “At Last” at their first inaugral dance. Check it out and relive for a moment those ecstatic, first happy days when it all seemed like a dream.
