To wear Jason Wu (again) or not to wear Jason Wu. That was the question on Michelle Obama's mind pre-inauguration. In 2009, the First Lady wore a white, one-shoulder gown by Wu to the Inaugural Ball, catapulting the designer to fashion stardom. Four years later, Wu again worked closely with Mrs. Obama's team, yet there was no confirmation as to whether or not she'd remain loyal. As America watched her take the stage, the Twitter community exploded, starting with Wu's shocked tweet. As for the rouge number's next destination? Off to the Smithsonian!
