*In dramatic fashion and with an introduction from her doting husband, First Lady Michelle Obama debuted a red gown by designer Jason Wu Monday night as she joined President Obama onstage for their first inauguration dance at the Commander-in-Chief Ball.
The ruby-colored chiffon and velvet dress was custom-made by Wu, who also designed the First Lady’s dress for Obama’s first Inaugural Ball in 2009.
Mrs. Obama also wore a handmade diamond-embellished ring by jewelry designer Kimberly McDonald and Jimmy Choo shoes.
The dress will now go into the National Archives. The First Lady’s 2009 Inauguration dress was donated to the Smithsonian in 2010.
