Looks like Jason Wu has once again become the envy of the fashion world, as Michelle Obama gave him the honour of creating her dress for the prestigious Inauguration ball last night. And didn’t he do well?

It’s obvious that the First Lady is a fan of the Taiwan-born designer’s work, as this isn’t the first time she has donned one of his pieces. She famously wore one of his designs for the Inauguration ball four years ago and catapulted him to fame more or less overnight. History does indeed repeat itself!

While she wore a cream one shouldered floral applique gown back in 2009, Mrs O went for a much bolder creation this time round, opting for a vivid red halter neck chiffon and velvet dress which complemented her figure beautifully. And her newly-cut fringe definitely didn’t go unnoticed – neither did those stunning Kimberly McDonald jewels that were custom-made especially for the occasion.

We cannot fault a single aspect of this look – the First Lady was radiant from top to toe!
