Michelle Obama's Inauguration Gown: It's a Nice Day for a White Wedding

As many of you have heard by now, First Lady Michelle Obama's inauguration ballgown was designed by Jason Wu, a 26 year-old born in Taiwan, trained at Parsons, and based in New York. Welcome to the Smithsonian, dude!

The ivory-colored, one-shoulder dress looked bridal, and I mean that in the best way. Because Barack and Michelle are embarking on a new journey together, as they were when they got married. The gown also conjured this fantasy that we had all been invited to their wedding, that we were not only witnesses to this extraordinary event that had taken place, we were also their friends, which, let's face it, is what we Obama supporters have believed all along anyway.
