As announced in the NYT today, Lady M has a new role in our re-election campaign: Head Cheerleader. Yes! That’s right, head cheerleader. Something Lady M’s always dreamed of.
Big Guy, Big Guy, He’s Our Man, if he can’t do it, no one can!
Give me a “B”!, make that a “B+”!!
And the best thing about this new role? We’ll be needing a whole new wardrobe. For this assignment we’re hiring Lady M’s own personal head cheerleader and unpaid spokesperson, Jason Wu. Here are a few excerpts from a pre-game pep rally interview with Jason:
On why Lady M is one of his heroes:
She really is this amazing woman. When I asked her how she chose my dress, she just chose it because she liked it. The idea that she would choose a dress for such an important day based purely on instinct is quite brave, and such a great thing to hear. Without any other deciding factor, she decided on the dress because she liked it.
Because – particularly in Lady M’s case - choosing a dress based solely on your instincts really is brave.
What do you think of her style sense?
I think she has certainly made Washington a more fashionable place and really inspired working women who may have been afraid to dress up too much for work in fear of not being taken seriously.
Who wouldn’t take Lady M seriously? Seriously?
With her beautiful chic dresses and the figure-flattering things she wears with bare arms, it doesn't get in the way of the fact that she is a great first lady promoting some great causes and I think that is inspiring women all over the world to not be afraid to embrace their femininity.
Nothing inspires femininity like a figure flattering big bow
On having his gown selected by Lady M for the inauguration:
It was really an amazing thing. I never thought that as a designer I would get to experience something of that magnitude. Because it is not only significant in my career, but it is also historically significant. I think that is something not every designer gets to do in their lifetime so I feel very proud of it.
We’re all very proud. It’s historical.
What do we have to look forward too?
My spring collection was inspired by pop art. It's really a combination of two things. Haute couture techniques and pop art. They are two very different elements and I wanted to combine them in such a way where they seem at home with each other.
Oh dear! I think I know where this is headed.Andy Warhol
What makes your designs special?
I have really honed my craft and made these truly breathtaking, gravity-defying clothes
Some so gravity defying they actually take your breath away
Well, that’s all for now. I’ve got to run because we’re all busy getting in shape for the cheerleading competition. We’ve got Two-A-Days scheduled now through January.
2012. WTF. Are you in?
