Michelle Obama made Jason Wu a household name, and we could see her in just about every hot pink and lime and bow-embellished piece Wu sent down the runway for his Spring/Summer 2011 collection (save the sheer chiffon blouses–not very FLOTUS like).
Wu’s vibrant color palette was inspired by the energy of Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes’ work. Delicate silk and chiffon blouses were paired with pin tucked trousers and cascade front skirts. The last ten or so looks were quintessential Wu–beautiful red carpet ready gowns, the skirts covered in fluttery petals. It’s a collection made to please–buyers, glossy editors and celeb stylists–Wu’s keeping everyone happy.
