The Dress: Michelle Obama's Inaugural Gown

It now officially feels like the new year as the Presidential Inauguration took place yesterday on the historic Martin Luther King Day, and what we're most enamored with is:  That Dress!

Yes, I said it... the Inauguration had its lovely moments, with Beyonce's National Anthem rendition, the 1st Couple walking down the parade (did anyone else see the awesomeness that was Al Roker on the sidelines???) but what most of us fashion-a-holics were most anxious to see, was what and who was Michelle Obama going to wear to the Presidential Inaugural Ball?

And she didn't disappoint!  Just like 4 years ago, the beautiful 1st Lady went to fabulous American designer Jason Wu!  And did he deliver!  When she came out waving in that stunning ruby halter gown, we were speechless.  The dress was immaculate and her radiant smile was the perfect accessory.

The chiffon-and-velvet gown was custom made for Mrs. Obama by Jason Wu, and she adorned her feet with Jimmy Choo shoes.  Showing off those famous arms, the gown was cinched in with a waist fitting, built in sash, and the loosened over the hips to create a ruby river of gorgeous proportions.

And with those new Barack Obama approved bangs, she truly was the ultimate Belle of the Ball!

What did you think of the dress?
