Michelle Obama's Inaugural Gown

In January, the world wagered for weeks on what America's new First Lady would wear to her husband's historic Inauguration. Michelle Obama didn't disappoint, choosing an ivory chiffon gown by Manhattan-based newcomer Jason Wu. It was a look that evoked new beginnings, not to mention nuptials. The nod from the First Lady changed the course of the 26-year-old Taiwanese American's career, launching his name into the global blogosphere and nearly tripling orders from department stores.
