Michelle Obama chooses white, frothy inaugural gown
Young designer Jason Wu’s fashion stock just went up big time. He designed Michelle Obama’s inaugural ball gown, a one-shouldered white, fluffy confection that oozed romance and femininity.
One-shoulder looks were all the runways for spring, and now with Obama’s pick, it’s likely they will become even more popular. Obama’s fashion choices have been well received by the fashion industry, and American women, but this is the first time she’s taken such a feminine turn. The chiffon gown featured appliques and beading, and she accented it with sparkle aplenty at the ears, fingers and wrists.
Jason Wu is a rising talent in fashion circles, but he’s not widely known. Neither is Isabel Toledo, who designed Obama’s yellow dress and matching coat ensemble for Tuesday’s inauguration. The fashion industry already is beaming from coast to coast that she’s savvy enough to recognize the talents of Wu and Toledo.
I thought the gown was beautiful, but not particularly flattering on her, especially at the waist. It was also a tad long and she was constantly fussing with it.
So, what did you think about her gown? Love it or not so much?
