When First Lady Michelle Obama sashayed onto the dance floor with the Commander-in-Chief at last night’s Inaugural Ball, she commanded most of the attention, at least for style watchers.
After much speculation, CNN reports that Mrs. O reportedly chose the ruby colored chiffon and velvet gown by Jason Wu – the same designer she wore for her first dance as First Lady at the Inauguration in 2009 – from a selection of 15 designer dresses. Wu Tweeted that he was “in shock.”
Now that the inaugural festivities are over, FLOTUS’ outfit and accompanying accessories – which included Jimmy Choo heels, Kimberly McDonald for Forevermark diamond bangles set in 18K gold as well as a diamond embellished ring by the jewelry designer – will be preserved at the National Archives.
