Jason Wu does it again as the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, chose his design for President Barack Obama’s Inauguration Ball. For most of the Presidential Inauguration weekend, Mrs. Obama has chosen laidback designs and colors.
For the inauguration parade, FLOTUS chose to wear a Thom Browne silk, navy checkered, fitted, belted coat with sharp leather knee-high boots.
For the children's concert at the Washington Convention Center to celebrate military families, Mrs. Obama wore a belted white, peplum style shirt with pants.
For President Obama’s swearing in ceremony, FLOTUS wore a two-piece navy blue Reed Krakoff dress. The jacket was to the waist and arm sleeves mid-length to elbows. Bodice was fitted with a flowing a-line skirt.
Yet, for the evening’s Presidential Ball, Mrs. Obama was vibrant as she once again chose designer Jason Wu, wearing a flowing red, halter-top, belted velvet gown with chiffon overlay and deep v-back. Although the style was considered by some to be subdued, the bright color in itself was striking enough to steal the show. FLOTUS also wore a hand-made custom diamond ring designed by Kimberly McDonald and Jimmy Choo shoes.
The Inauguration garments will go into the Presidential National Archives after the evening’s event.
