Jason Wu Calls Michelle Obama’s Choice of His Dress "Thrilling, Emotional and Inspiring"

michelle+obama+inauguration Jason Wu Calls Michelle Obamas Choice of His Dress "Thrilling, Emotional and Inspiring"Jason Wu hit the fashion lottery tonight. In December, the 26-year old Tawainese-American designer submitted three dresses to Michelle Obama for consideration, but considered himself a long-shot. Wu had no idea that Michelle Obama had chosen his one-shouldered, embellished, off-white gown until the President and First Lady took the stage at the Neighborhood Ball. “I found out tonight…along with the rest of the world,” Wu told CNN.

“It’s thrilling, it’s emotional and it’s inspiring. For a young designer, I couldn’t ask for anything more than this. It’s my dream come true.”

On inauguration night, Wu won’t be celebrating his newfound celebrity. He doesn’t have time. With New York Fashion Week only three weeks away, he will be burning the midnight oil – working on his Fall 2009 collection.

When asked his thoughts about Michelle Obama’s status as an emerging style icon, Wu said, “She’s versatile. She can do it all. She is amazing. She has her own sense of style and there’s nothing better than that.”

Thoughts on Michelle Obama’s gown?

Take A Brow, Michelle Obama: Your Softer Arches Are Just The Change You Needed

michelle+obama Take A Brow, Michelle Obama: Your Softer Arches Are Just The Change You NeededIf you’re like me, you can’t get enough of Michelle Obama. Her fashion and beauty choices keep me entertained, on my toes, and taking copious notes.

Last Fall, while at New York Fashion Week, I got to talking with the Bobbi Brown. Bobbi was sporting an Obama ’08 pin, so we started chatting about Michelle’s makeup and favorite Bobbi Brown products. Towards the end of the conversation, I asked Bobbi her opinion of Michelle’s eyebrows; I told Bobbi that, though Michelle can do no wrong in my eyes, her arches could use some softening. Bobbi smiled and nodded, adding that if she was Michelle’s makeup artist, she would give Michelle a less angular arch.

Around the same time, Michelle Obama’s actual makeup artist, Chicago-based makeup artist Ingrid Grimes-Myles, was getting the same criticism about Michelle’s brows.

“When she started getting that feedback—I have a rule: When three or more people give you feedback, that means hundreds are talking about it—then what I began to do is bring them down and train them down,” Grimes-Myles said.

If you take a close look at Michelle’s current brows and compare them the ones she sported at the Democratic National Convention, you’ll notice that the arch is less exaggerated.

The Chicago Tribune has a great article about Michelle’s brow evolution, which includes some tasty beauty tidbits (Michelle loves MAC lip pencils and gloss).

Kim Kardashian Names Smashbox Best Bronzer

kim+kardashian Kim Kardashian Names Smashbox Best Bronzer
On her blog, Kim dishes on her favorite bronzer. The key? It gives her serious glow, without looking greasy…

smashbox+bronzer Kim Kardashian Names Smashbox Best BronzerI love this bronzer and use it all over my face and my cheekbones to give me definition but also color. It’s by Smashbox and it’s called Bronze Lights. I get it in the Suntan Matte shade. I think it’s important to have a great matte bronzer that doesn’t have shimmer in it because sometimes shimmer can make you look oily. I use a smaller brush to contour my cheekbones and then use a bigger powder brush to give me a little color on my forehead and nose.

Spotted: Blake Lively on the Cover of Vogue

blake+lively+vogue Spotted: Blake Lively on the Cover of Vogue
OMFG! Blake Lively is Vogue‘s February cover girl. Lively looks absolutely lovely, channeling old Hollywood a la Veronica Lake.

“The fashion is just unbelievable. You can watch our show on mute and be entertained,” Lively says. And she’s not overstating it. The characters wear designer clothes that teeter between unattainable chic and self-parody, be it Bass’s wearing a tuxedo covered with paillettes that shimmer like a matador’s suit or Blair’s attending the dean’s party at Yale with an Alice-in-Plunderland pewter-colored satin bow in her hair. For her part, Lively is entranced by Serena’s authentically local look. “Just being here, walking around, you pick it up really quickly,” she explains. “In New York, you put on skinny jeans and riding boots and a leather coat and handbag, and you take on that posture and character,” Lively says. “It becomes very natural.” Lively’s natural style? Costume National boots, dark Rag & Bone trousers, and a Joie cashmere vest over a Ports 1961 white pointelle cashmere sweater, punctuated by Chanel earrings, a Chanel handbag, and a Jeri Cohen diamond bracelet. (“They let me borrow it, and now I can’t take it off,” Lively says mischievously.)
