Michelle Obama selected a gorgeous gown by Taiwanese designer Jason Wu for the second time to attend the inaugural balls on Monday in Washington. Wu made fashion history in 2008 by designing his first gown for Michelle which was a stunning one-shoulder white chiffon ballgown with beaded detailing.
For Monday's events Michelle once again selected Wu but the design was much bolder in color and sophistication. The halter-style red silk and chiffon gown featured a keyhole front made of real diamonds. The look included a deep v-back and thin ribbon waist detailing.
Michelle showed a fashion confidence with her selection that we did not see four-years ago. After this weeks events the design will head to the National Archives.
Wu told the Associated Press, "I can't believe it. It's crazy. To have done it once was the experience of my life.To have a second time is tremendous."
While some thought that Michelle's fashion choices this week were too drab for the events including her Thom Browne coat, this Wu design made up for it.
Bright and bold color is certainly a good friend to Michelle Obama. She looking stunning. Love the bangs!
