Drumroll please! The Jason Wu x Eloquii Collection is here!
So let me tell you a little something about my love affair with Jason Wu. It all started back in 2009 when he exploded onto the world scene when he designed the Inaugural Gown for First Lady Michelle Obama.
So do you remember it? The flowy white chiffon number with the thousands of organza flowers that were hand-sewn by himself and 4 members of his staff. Just incredible right?!
He had know idea that Michelle would pick his design to wear on that special night but to his shock and amaze he was stunned to see the new First Lady of the United States of America sashaying in front of the entire world in his dress!
In the months and years to come Jason would become a fashion darling and design for some of my favorite Hollywood leading ladies like Kerry Washington, Blake Lively and (sister-in-my-head) the Duchess of Sussex aka Megan Markle — who wore a few of his designs during her recent Royal Tour.
Okay, so fast forward to how I find myself being one of the first people to wear dresses from the new Jason Wu x Eloquii Collection.
I was approached by Eloquii about 2 weeks ago where they tell me, get this, that I was hand selected by Jason Wu himself to be one of two women to wear and model his designs before anyone else!
I was shooketh to the core.
I was so blown away that somewhere out there, Jason Wu looked at me and said, “Yes, her.”
Let’s get to the deets about this dress. It’s a twirl-around-and-dance-like-no-one-is-watching-approved dress. I’m wearing a size 22 for reference.
Made up of layers and layers of point d’espirit — that’s French talk for pretty polka dotted printed tulle. Also fully line with an invisible zipper and hook and eye closure and a dangerously plunging neckline that may or may not cause a riot if you’re busty like me.
You’ve been warned.
Alexa, play “I Want To Dance With Somebody” by Whitney Houston, because “she ready.”
