…or is that Mr. President & Madam First Lady? Didn’t Michelle Obama look like a bride in that beautiful dress?

The designer? Jason Wu. He’s only 26-years-old!!! People are calling him the next Oscar de la Renta or Carolina Herrera.

Did you hear that the designers of both of her outfits yesterday had no idea she was wearing their designs until they saw her on TV? What a surprise & an honor it must be for them!

The age of digital. Look at all the camera’s in this shot above. Who wouldn’t want to take a photo of the bride…I mean the new First Lady…in that gown?! Gorgeous!

Here are some of his fashions released for his Spring of 2007 line found on Style.com.

It is said that Jason Wu focuses his designs on the hourglass figure of the female body.

I think he’s definitely mastered that.

I’m not usually one to remember who wears what, but the fact that this man is 26-years-old and has a lifetime career ahead of him amazes me! So many people don’t really know what they want to do for a living at that age, myself included when I was his age, but he obviously is doing what he loves. At least it seems that it comes through in his designs. I think we’ll be hearing his name a whole lot more in the years to come.

You can also feel President Obama is doing what he loves. All day yesterday and last evening felt like the celebration of a new beginning, which it was, but it’s so similar to the feelings surrounding weddings too.

I heard the inaugural invitations had been engraved on Classic Crest paper from one of my vendors, Neenah Paper. Neena Paper seems very focused on the environment. They include an eco calculator where you can select your paper type and quantity and see results of how much environmental impact it has, i.e. how many trees were used to make the paper, how much water was used, etc. Give it a try!
