so who dressed michelle obama for the inauguration?

January 20th, 2009 · 5 Comments

Isabel Toledo! The Cuba-born American designer, who was impressed to see Michelle chose one of her designs for a fundraiser in Manhattan this past Fall, designed Michelle Obama’s lovely chartreuse/yellow dress and overcoat. Now  I do praise the first lady for making sacrifices for the sake of fashion, but golly, get the woman a scarf! It’s cold out there!

Wondering about Michelle’s choice for the Inaugural Ball? Her one-shouldered, white/cream gown covered in embellished flowers was designed by Jason Wu.

Looks like this first lady is keen to keep people guessing and knows a thing or two about fashion. Wu has garnered much praise from the fashion in just three short years of launching his own label.

    It certainly turend out to be a day that dreams are made of! For all of the hard work and curve-balls that came with the preparations, we could not have asked for anything to be more perfect! Wendy and her assistant Heidi certainly captured all of the emotions of the day and marvelously preserved so many details of this special wedding that we can now cherish happily ever after !!
