Jason Wu‘s name has been on everyone’s lips since the moment Michelle Obama arrived at the 2013 Inaugural Ball this week in his custom scarlet red gown, the second time she’s bestowed such an honour on him. The New York-based designer has developed quite the following since that fateful day 4 years ago when MObama stepped out in his ivory creation at her first Inaugural Ball. He’s collaborated with Target, launched his contemporary line Miss Wu, and continued to dress leading ladies around the world in his glamourous and sophisticated designs.
Because we’re obsessed with all things Wu – and Mrs. Obama has given us the perfect excuse – we’ve gleefully trolled through the archives and rounded up the 10 most memorable red carpet moments courtesy of Jason Wu, inauguration outfits notwithstanding. From Diane Kruger (pictured above) and Karlie Kloss at the Met Ball to Zoe Saldana and Jessica Pare on the awards show circuit, the designer’s devotees always look nothing short of spectacular. Whether it’s a whimsical bow-topped gown for Michelle Williams, a pink princess frock for Fan Bingbing or a sexy LBD for Jaime King, Jason Wu never fails to deliver.
