She’s worn his design not once, but twice, on the biggest night of her husband’s political career.
When Michelle Obama first stepped out at the Inauguration Ball in 2008, the world was floored by the white one-shouldered gown with embroidered flowers. That was the moment that catapulted Jason Wu into the limelight. Then, in 2012, at the second Inauguration Ball of President Obama’s career, she chose to wear a dress made by him again.
Michelle Obama isn’t the only name who’s on the roster of Jason Wu’s list of famous fans. Celebrities such as Dakota Johnson and Diane Kruger, as well as supermodels Lily Aldridge and Doutzen Kroes are all ardent supporters of the Taiwanese-American designer.
As part of Singapore Fashion Week, Jason Wu is bringing his signature sense of understated glamour and feminine tailoring to our sunny shores. Before his collection hits the runway, brush up on the things you never knew about him.
