Jason Wu was the designer that helped set the tone for Michelle Obama’s White House style—thus, it only makes sense that she would choose to wear a custom design of his during her husband’s farewell address. The speech was already emotional in itself, but this particular black-lace, long-sleeved throwback was nostalgia defined.
One of the address’s most poignant moments came when the President addressed the First Lady directly, tearing up while saying: “Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, girl of the South Side. For the past 25 years, you have not only been my wife and mother of my children, you have been my best friend. You took on a role that you didn’t ask for, and you made it your own. With grace and with grit and with style and with good humor.”
We’ll miss you both.
