Wu Woos Michelle

Jason Wu was catapulted to fame a little over a year ago when Michelle Obama wore a gown of his to the inaugural ball, and Wu seems to be wooing the First Lady again with his latest collection.

This dress would work with a pair of Mrs. Obama's ever-present flats and J.Crew cardigan. I can even envision her wearing it with her Alaia belt.
This mustardy-gold color has been lovely on Mrs. Obama in the past, and the off the shoulder asymmetry would show off her famous biceps.
This dress would be a riskier move for Mrs. Obama, but it's not riskier than the Narciso Rodriguez dress she wore on election night 2008. Besides, the conservative silhouette makes the gilding a lot easier to pull off.
