Diane Kruger, Kerry Washington, Michelle Obama & Zoe Saldana Are Wooed By Designer Jason Wu!
When Michelle Obama glided across the floor in an intricately ruched white Jason Wu one-shoulder gown at the Inaugural Ball on January 20, 2009, the First Lady instantly transformed the designer of doll clothes for Fashion Royalty into fashion royalty himself.
“I call white the most powerful non-color; it’s clean, optimistic, powerful,” said Michelle. “Regarding the one shoulder, I thought, what’s a great balance between strapless and fully-sleeved? The truth of the matter is that we haven’t had a First Lady not wearing sleeves for inauguration. The Obama presidency ushers in a new generation, and it’s fitting to introduce a new silhouette.”
Moments after Michelle and Barack Obama finished their first dance as Beyoncé sang “At Last,” the Taiwanese-American designer’s phone started ringing off the hook and it hasn’t stopped since. From Kerry Washington, Diane Kruger and Natalie Portman, to Reese Witherspoon, Iman and Jessica Alba, the 28-year-old is now the go-to-designer for Hollywood’s elite. Actresses revel in Jason’s aesthetic because is all at once romantic, classic, elegant and yet, still effortless.
Behold the ladies wooed by Jason Wu.
