Jason Wu's First Lady style attracts NY Fashion Week's biggest crowds
The night in questions was of course Barack Obama's Inauguration Ball, and the dress, a one-shouldered ivory gown not only wowed fashion commentators, but propelled Wu's name to household status overnight.
And this new notoriety has clearly had an effect, as the designer's New York Fashion Week show on Saturday was the busiest of the weekend.
A testament perhaps to the designer's modesty, rather than exploit his newfound fame, he kept the event small and retained the pretty signature style on which he has built his career.
Perhaps inspired by his own stratospheric rise, the collection was inspired by fairytales, and so princess gowns with sweeping skirts fit for Hollywood starlets ruled the runway.
From politics to Hollywood, we'll expect to spot at least one Wu on the Oscars red carpet next weekend!
