First Lady Gives Inauguration Gown to Smithsonian

by Lisa
First Lady Michelle Obama donated her inauguration gown to the Smithsonian during a traditional ceremony which includes the donation of ‘debut” dresses to the museum.

The iconic Jason Wu design will be showcased in a new gallery called “First Lady Debut” along with inaugural gowns worn by other First Ladies.

The Divine Mrs. O said of her dress “When I look at my gown — which I, in fact, have not seen since the day that I took it off — memories of that moment truly come rushing back. I remember that it was freezing cold in Washington. I know we all remember that. Yet, despite the frigid temperatures, hundreds of thousands of people flooded the Mall. Nothing was going to stop them from being part of history”.
