Jason Wu Spring 2009


Designer Jason Wu’s name enjoyed a decidedly sharp spike in search popularity this week. The young clothier had the immaculate privilege of dressing our new First Lady, Michelle Obama for her night of the many inauguration balls.

I wonder how many department stores just placed (or upped) their orders for Wu’s fresh and flowy Spring ’09 offerings. Luckily, the line is plenty deserving and scores an impressive 8/10. Here’s a few Cult picks:

Mrs. Obama’s choice of Wu for what must of been a magical evening is right on target with her record for style that’s is somehow classic and modern all at once, just like she did on her birthday during the pre-inaugural Whistle Stop Tour:
