Michelle Obama Returned to a Favorite Designer For the President's Farewell Speech

For President Obama’s farewell speech on Tuesday evening, he went back to his adopted hometown of Chicago. And first lady Michelle Obama went back to a favorite designer: Jason Wu.

FLOTUS wore a lace, long-sleeved, below-the-knee number in navy, the same hue worn by her husband and their daughter Malia. The understated dress had sheer sleeves and an A-line silhouette that perfectly skimmed her statuesque physique. “You took on a role you didn’t ask for and you made it your own with grace and grit and style, and good humor,” the emotional president told his wife from the stage. A nation — and a nation of fashion designers — couldn’t have agreed more.

The first lady was a gift to the fashion world, as she infused diversity into her choices of attire whether she was meeting Queen Elizabeth or attending the BET Awards. She famously wore J.Crew, yes, but she also wore designers ranging from Cuban-American Isabel Toledo to Prabal Gurung, who was born in Singapore, to celebrated American designer Tom Ford. Again and again, though, she returned to Wu, and his designs helped define her fashion legacy.

She had worn Wu to an important event eight years earlier — President Obama’s inauguration in 2009. It’s true: Michelle Obama gave Wu his big break when she made her official debut in a white chiffon asymmetrical gown by the designer, who at the time was unknown and just 26 years old.
