Jason Wu, I Do

Even though Jason Wu's name catapulted to record fame after Michelle Obama wore his delectable cream confection on Inauguration Day, I had already been following this fellow Asian's career for some time now. A good friend of mine, who is an avid doll collector, showed me his beautiful miniature creations (yes, most people are unaware that he began with dolls), and I adored everything he put out on the runway. His spring collection is sure to sell out on Net-a-porter (a tangential grumble: they keep selling out within hours of featuring something, and I find it annoying). These are my favorites:

1. This sophisticated and sweet blush and white dress is something I'd wear all spring and summer long:

2. Even though this coat/frock reminds me of Hitchcock's The Birds, I still find it appealing:

3. I'm in love with anything yellow for spring, and this frothy gown would be perfect at a wedding on a grassy lawn:

My daughters and I knew Mr. Wu's doll collection! We've visited it at FAO Schwarz. The first dress is lovely--a perfect shade of pink . . .

I'm with you on the yellow dress. I am so tired of winter's grey and black already.
