Lucky you, Jason Wu! Michelle Obama wore a ruby colored chiffon and velvet gown by the designer to the Inaugural Ball last night (January 21, 2013) in Washington D.C. She wore a a white, one-shoulder gown by Jason Wu to the Inaugural Ball in 2009.
She accessorized with shoes by Jimmy Choo and a handmade diamond embellished ring by Kimberly McDonald, whose website subsequently crashed after her name was revealed.
Obama’s pick surprised many fashion critics, who thought she would give the honor to another designer this time around.
Jennifer Hudson sang Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together” during the first dance at the 2013 Inaugural Ball.
“Right now the President and First Lady will dance to Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together,” to be performed by… ME!!! Yes! Amazing night!”
FLOTUS tweeted herself as well:
“Just danced to “Let’s Stay Together” with the love of my life and the President of the United States. I’m so proud of Barack.”
