Michelle Obama’s Red Dress is the New Black for Retailers

You just know Jason Wu was doing a victory dance with his team last night when Michelle Obama emerged from the wings at the Commander-in-Chief’s ball resplendent in his ruby red chiffon and velvet gown. Not only was it an honor for the 30-year old designer, but the ripple effect of the First Lady’s fashion choice will not only raise his profile, but will mean a bump in sales for a variety of designers and retailers.

Guess it’s nice to have the first lady on your side.  On a personal note has any first lady had this much commentary on her style other than Jackie-O? And unlike Jackie-O, Michelle Obama isn’t 100% designer style clothing.  She’s whipped out the Old Navy, Gap, and all the others that women like to thrift on.   She’s got it all folks.   Oh and not to mention, she’s got a great new ‘do as well!  You go Michelle!
