First Look! Jason Wu's Sketch Of Michelle Obama's Red Inaugural Ball Gown

January 21, 2013 by Jeanine Edwards

By now, you’re probably in awe of Michelle Obama’s gorgeous red inaugural ball gown and the fact that she opted for Jason Wu again. We love the choice–everything from the color to the silhouette was just perfect for MObama.

As for Jason Wu, he is likely in heaven right now and he totally deserves this moment. The dress he designed for the First Lady was a custom creation – including a gold embellished Kimberly McDonald-designed ring in the halter. After seeing this glimpse of the sketch Jason Wu sent over for consideration it’s easy to see why Michelle Obama couldn’t resist choosing his design again.

Now that we’ve had some time to think on it, we actually think this red design is more amazing than his white design she wore back in 2009. The color just looks so good against her skin and the fabric is stunning. What do you think–do you prefer the red Jason Wu dress from 2013 or the white Jason Wu dress from 2009? Share in the comments.
