Michelle Obama Inaugural Ball Dress: Jason Wu!

22 January 2013, 04.29 | Posted in dress | No comments »


We all were on the edge of our seats waiting for Michelle Obama’s big dress reveal tonight and trust, we read all the Tweets, no one was guessing Jason Wu was going to land THE dress for a second inaugural ball. There are those who have fussed that Obama should have given another young designer a chance, but you know how it went for her. She tried on all the gowns–there were like 20–and she kept coming back to two, but in the end it was Wu’s that she couldn’t resist.  This woman has sacrificed lots–for her husband, her children, her country–more power to her for choosing for heart’s desire for a change. And of course–big congrats to Jason Wu, thrilled for him! She looks stunning, you can see why she made the choice.

Michelle Obama Wears Tracey Reese & J.Crew

Michelle Obama flashed her famously toned arms in a shimmery pink Tracey Reese dress she wore for her very well received Democratic National Convention speech last night in Charlotte, North Carolina. On the way to a party last night for designer Leah McSweeney and writer Cat Marnell (happy birthday to both of you!), my co-editor, SGP, speculated the dress might be J.Crew. She wasn’t far off, Obama’s pumps were J.Crew pink “Everly” pumps, available now for $245. (You know Jenna Lyons & co. are high-fiving their asses off this morning!) The fashion conscious Obama also gave a nod to the nail art trend wearing a grey shade of purple.

Our awesome first lady shouts out Chicago’s South Side in an article featured in Essence’s October issue. She recently put her Double-Dutch skills on display, an ability she no doubt picked up during her days growing up in the Windy City.

I must say, sometimes I wonder how Ms. Obama would dress if she weren’t hemmed in by the dress codes of her current job. A little fiercer I’d guess.

MichelleJasonUSAToday Michelle O. & Jason Wu Smithsonian Bound!

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.

On Michelle Obama’s Style…

 On Michelle Obamas Style...

 As far as I can remember, Lady Diana  was probably the one woman in politics/media I remember being excited to see on TV.She had grace and the elegance that made you wonder what she would do next. She was not rocking the edgiest looks but sh e was relevant to the times in her own way.

 Michelle Obama is also creating quite a stir,  understandably so,considering that the woman can rock H&M, J.crew,Thakoon, and Narciso Rodriguez, and make it look effortless , elegant and oh so current!
