He’s definitely one of the hottest designers on the fashion landscape these days, and Jason Wu was once again honored to dress First Lady Michelle Obama for her Inauguration festivities.
Last night (January 21), Mrs Obama wore a Wu creation to a duo of events to celebrate the second term of her husband, President Barack Obama.
Jason told WWD, “Mrs. Obama likes to keep her secrets. She surprised me again. She’s really good at it. I was so nervous. You’d think I wouldn’t be since I’d experienced it before but I really was.”
Wu continued, “I was just elated. It’s hard to describe. Like last time, I had to go with my gut. I instinctively had to think of the woman in the dress. After four years in office, I thought the country was ready to see a confident First Lady in red. It just felt right.”
