Inspired By Obama

Not the main man, obviously — this A.B.S. gown was inspired by our fashion-forward FLOTUS, Michelle Obama. Cream chiffon meets floral detail in the ‘Michelle’ one-shoulder gown, which can be yours if you have $309 and are size 0-8. Note that only one of these things describes yours truly… ah, well.


This frock is, of course, a play on that designed by 26-year-old Jason Wu and worn by the First Lady on inaugural ball night. Personally I like the original much more than the copy and would rather give a fledgling designer my money than copycat Allen B. Schwartz. Still, it would make an attractive and original wedding dress, no?

PS — I’ve finally updated my blogroll, so go check out the new great wedding reads!

    Sorry, no. Didn’t like the dress on Ms. Obama and don’t like this version of it either.

    No… I don’t think I like it either. I definitely didn’t like it on Mrs. Obama, I thought it looked cheap and not a little like it had fungus all over it.

    This version is a little better, maybe. Though the one strap kind of looks like a burping cloth.

    christianef: A burp cloth, eh? Well that would be convenient for me, at least!
