Jason Wu Makes Pretty Clothes For First Ladies and Uptown Divas (Did You Expect Anything Less?)

The buzz around Jason Wu this season has reached a fever pitch, no doubt because of a certain Mrs. O. And while the First Lady was not in attendance at the designer's show, there were plenty of other tastemakers on the scene, including Lynn Yaeger and Kate Lanphear. But onto the clothes: Lots of pretty cocktail frocks and gowns, including a stunning navy silk tulle number worn by Karlie Kloss (we can already see Michelle glamming it up in at a black tie gala). Heading to more adventurous territory, there were the feathered vests and skirts, which would look right at home on front-row attendee Olivia Palermo. We caught The City star for a brief chat after the show, in which she clued us in on her Fashion Week routine. Does it involve a special manicure or a trip to the dermatologist? Nope. "I get ready the same way I get ready every other day," the Uptown girl said. Alright, but that's because "every other day" involves three hours of beauty prep time for the MTV camera...right?
