Michelle Obama In Jason Wu - Public Inaugural Ball

I stayed up until 2am eager to watch history in the making as Michelle Obama revealed her gown to the world at the public Inaugural Ball in Washington, D.C. on Monday evening.

I was delighted to see that Mrs O wore Jason Wu again.

After a weekend of muted colours, she dazzled the crowds wearing a custom ruby chiffon and velvet gown which showcased her athletic figure and radiant smooth skin.

While some of you may have been rooting for another designer, I think she made the right choice in wearing a designer she felt comfortable with, whose feminine design aesthetic has flattered her on so many occasions over the past four years.

Kimberly McDonald provided the custom-made jewels and Jimmy Choo provided her heels – I’m guessing they are kitten heels.

The only question I have is, “where was Chris de Burgh?”

If ever there was a moment to sing ‘Lady in Red’, this was it.

Jason’s simple reply on twitter was #Inshock!!!
