Jason Wu is Smithsonian bound…
While I love their style separately, the combination may not be as divine.
Michelle Obama chose a very of-the-moment one-shoulder, white airy gown by Jason Wu as her much coveted First Lady ball gown. The sheer, floatiness of this cream, organza gown is probably quite amazing and spectacular in person– it undoubtedly will be a showstopper in the Smithsonian First Ladies Collection and a rather sublime choice historically.
However, on television, in photos… not so much on the First Lady herself.
Obama has a very keen sense of her own personal style and wears what both flatters her and what she feels comfortable wearing.
The First Lady is a statuesque beauty and this evening’s ball gown looked juvenile rather than fresh and not the most photogenic on her frame.
Again, I am sure that in person the gown is gorgeous.
Before being tucked in for the night, Malia and Sasha Obama both chose to wear J.Crew & crewcuts by J.Crew to daddy’s inauguration earlier today.
All in all, we can rest assured that the Obamas are bringing in a much needed dose of glamour and style into the White House and a grand resuscitation to the American fashion industry.
Three cheers for a First Lady who takes a risk!
