The First Lady wowed the fashion world by once again choosing to wear a Jason Wu design to the Inaugural Balls on Monday night. You can see Michelle Obama's dress above in our brand new photo slideshow of President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama attending the Inaugural Balls on Jan. 21 here now. (Also, see photos of Michelle Obama's dress from earlier on Inauguration Day 2013.)
Four years ago, Jason Wu wasn't exactly a household name; today, he has the FLOTUS as a repeat client. This year, Wu, a Taiwan-Canadian designer currently based out of New York, created Michelle Obama's custom gown in a halter-top style and finished the look with a chiffon overlay. The flaming-coral colored dress had movement and structure all at once, and the First Lady looked radiant.

Those who were hoping FLOTUS Michelle Obama would choose an American designer to dress her for the Inauguration Day 2013 festivities will be happy to know the First Lady did just that, selecting a Thom Brown coat and dress for her daytime appearances. Thom Brown, primarily known for his menswear, crafted a perfectly-tailored one-of-a-kind navy blue ensemble for Michelle using tie silk. The overall effect was feminine but powerful, which suited Michelle perfectly for this occasion. Striking purple gloves and a J. Crew belt completed the look.
Michelle Obama also rocked a very important accessory for the day's many photo ops: a new haircut that includes flirty, fun bangs. While "Fashion Police" star Joan Rivers reportedly bashed the bangs this week, we quite like them on the FLOTUS. They soften her face and add a bit of youth to a woman who is, in fact, a rather young First Lady. What do you think?
