First Lady of Style.

Yesterday was a historic moment, a moment you will tell your children about, the day the world changed. But how on earth do you do decide what to wear on such a day? Well, this was of course the unenviable task for Michelle Obama, at the centre of history in the making, she knew whatever she wore would be analyzed and picked to pieces. But you know what? She got it right.

But it was Jason Wu that we’ve really all been talking about. Wu hadn’t even been told that Michelle would be wearing his dress to the ball. The Tapei-born designer told WWD “I found out with everyone else - which was pretty fabulous, when you think about it.” But what a dress…

Like a dream, Michelle, stood in crystal encrusted chiffon one-shouldered gown. It flattered every inch of her figure. If the speech made you cry, it was this dress that did it for me. True glamour, real beauty and optimism for the future of fashion.

Politics just got interesting.
