If Michelle Obama was out to shock the public tonight with her choice of designer for the Inaugural Ball, she definitely succeeded!
The FLOTUS chose a tomato red, floor-length custom-made gown by Jason Wu, the same designer behind her 2009 Inaugural gown. Four years ago, the white one-shouldered gown she debuted catapulted the then-little known designer to household name status, and many expected Obama to do the same for another small designer tonight.
Instead, the First Lady went for an old faithful — a draped chiffon Wu gown with a keyhole neckline, which she paired with Jimmy Choo kitten heels, an armful of sparkly bracelets, and a flipped-out hairstyle. Suffice it to say, she stole the show.

this is some kind of spaceship or something.
