Inauguration Evening: Michelle Obama’s gown

KW: The news event that many of us have been waiting for: What did Michelle Obama wear to the inauguration balls?

She wore white. Which is sweet, like a young bride.

And, the AP describes her gown in this way:

“…a white chiffon one-shoulder gown…

“Her full-skirted dress had a strap across her right shoulder, a ruched bodice, fluffy appliques and sparkly beading.”

The gown is by designer Jason Wu.

The Los Angeles Times says Jason Wu is an “American designer and up-and-coming talent. Wu is 26 years old, was born in Taiwan and studied at Parsons in New York.”


If you want to think about women and fashion – “women in politics” and fashion and/or “women in history” and fashion — consider visiting Kimberly’s new blog, inspired by Georgiana, The Duchess of Devonshire. Over there, Kimberly is doing a whole series on fashion and politics:
