Jason Wu tweeted “#Inshock!!!” after seeing the First Lady, Michelle Obama donning his design for the Inaugural Balls last night, Jan. 21, proving to be his most loyal and famous client.
Wu rose to fame fashioning Michele Obama’s white chiffon Inaugural gown in 2009 seen in the slideshow as the First Lady attended the Western Inaugural Ball on January 20, 2009 in Washington, D.C. following her husband, Barak Obama’s swearing in as the 44th President of the United States, becoming the first African-American to be elected President.
And as the United States watched history in the making yesterday as Barack Obama was Inaugurated for his second term, entering a select group of Presidents, the world was waiting to see what Michelle Obama would be wearing, shocking the 30-year-old designer from New York City who created her Inaugural gown.
The First Lady entered the Commander-in-Chief’s Ball for U.S. service members, the first Inaugural Ball of the evening, wearing Jason Wu’s ruby red chiffon and velvet, halter-top gown, paired with Jimmy Choo shoes, perfect for her dances with the President and members of the military to singer and American Idol, Jennifer Hudson.
Michelle Obama’s ruby red Inaugural Ball Gown will join Jason Wu’s first Inaugural gown he designed for the First Lady, along with all of her accessories, in the National Archives.
