Obama Takes Office and the Dolly Connection

Posted by thedollcafe at Tuesday, January 20, 2009
Today our new president took office. In the evening he attended about ten inaugural balls. Michelle Obama wore a Jason Wu original gown designed especially for her!

Jason was approached by Michelle's team to submit sketches. He submitted three dresses and they were delivered to Michelle in December. She chose this dress and Jason Wu was surprised as he found out by seeing the dress on TV! Jason said, "It's thrilling, emotional and inspiring." "As a young designer this is a dream come true!" He waned to design something about hope, newness and something dreamlike that represents the Obamas. We are making history and he wanted to express that. (From CNN call in interview with Jason Wu.)
