So the dress was designed by Jason Wu, a relatively new talent in the fashion world. I was very impressed that she chose someone of little reknown…it’s SO refreshing to have a First Lady that actually cares about fashion and doesn’t settle for looking like a PTA mom. The gown was stunning and you can see a pic HERE. When I first saw it I thought it was cream but it turns out it is a light pale yellow. It’s beautiful. I had someone say that she needed to dress her age…are you kidding me?? What? Just because she is in her 40’s means that she has to dress boring? Because that’s what you are saying…she is 28 anymore…she should dress like a soccer mom. NO! NO I say!!! ONWARD FASHION!!!! Can you imagine the gall of someone to say that she should dress OLDER??? They are HIGH! She looked stunning and elegant. I was very proud as I know millions of americans were! We ARE going to see GREAT fashion moments from Michelle Obama. The Inauguration and Inaugural Ball is the first of many GREAT moments in her fashion life! I’m excited to watch her style develop! So here’s great piece of fashion advice…if you want to dress like an old lady and if you want to have NO style at all…do exactly OPPOSITE of what Michelle Obama does and you will have succeeded! REMEMBER…BE FABULOUS!
