JASON WU FALL/WINTER 2009

This was perhaps the most hotly anticipated collection of the season given that First Lady Michelle Obama not only wore Wu to the Presidential inaugural balls, but also on March’s Vogue cover. Jason Wu delighted with modern, feminine, and often colorful looks. 

Some of the full-skirted day dresses had somewhat of an Oscar de la Renta feel. There were also a number of delicate chiffon gowns that the audience was no doubt picturing on Michelle Obama, along with more tailored suits, slim skirts with pockets, and a number of pieces with ruffle details.  

The collection was beautifully styled with bold necklaces complementing the strapless looks especially well.
