My "O" face

If money was no object, I would wear Oscar de la Renta five days a week and Dries van Noten on the weekends. De la Renta showed his Spring '09 collection yesterday at Fashion Week in New York. What do you think about Michelle Obama wearing the gown above for the inaugural ball?

Jezebel picked this one as a possibility. I was struck by how much the runway backdrop looks like one of my favorite images from Southern Accents magazine.

You are so right... that pink dress, with Michelle Obama's skin... perfection.

I don't care what she wears as long as she gets to go to the ball! (Although that dress would be lovely on her. The lady can wear some clothes!)

I love that combination of apple green & lavendar. It blends really nicely.

It does, doesn't it? I've always thought this is the most restful-looking bedroom.

I almost fainted over that first dress. I want to wear it to my (hypothetical) wedding. Though the color would be awful on me--I'm thinking a medium taupe instead. But check out the demographic of the ladies in the audience... Carine Roitfeld et al nowhere in sight.

The only one I recognize (I think) is Cathy Horyn, the fashion writer for the NY Times, on the far right of the second photo.
