by - 2:21 PM

Ok, so remember that post where I said Jason Wu is the next Big Designer, well told ya so.LOL The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama choose a dress by Jason Wu for the Inauguration. Turns out Michelle got turned onto Wu through Ikram Goldman, the owner of the Chicago boutique Ikram, who ordered the Wu dress she wore for her Barbara Walters interview last November. The Wall Street Journal reports that when Wu was asked whether he would design her inauguration gown, he replied, "Oh, that's a long shot!" Apparently nothing is a long shot with the Obamas.

Who is Jason Wu?

Wu, 26, whiz kid, who was born in Taiwan and works in Manhattan, has been compared to Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera. But that Park Avenue sensibility is often tempered with a touch of youthful whimsy. Jason Wu was a student of Tim Gunn from Project Runway at Parsons in New York. Visit his site @ JasonWuStudio.com
