Will a Compliment Turn Into the Inaugural Gown?
Kai Milla, like everyone in the fashion business, has her eyes on one very special assignment: Michelle Obama's inaugural gown.
"That would be a dream come true for any designer," said Milla, who brought her inaugural collection to Saks Jandel on Saturday. "I'm certainly hoping it will be me." The D.C. native (and wife of Stevie Wonder) actually has a shot -- Milla met the incoming first lady at the Democratic convention in Denver, where Obama told her, "I love your line." And did we mention Oprah's a big fan, too?
So we had to ask -- if she got the nod for the inaugural gown, what would it look like? Milla told us she'd whip up something in rich jewel tones: "One thing Michelle seems to pull off more than other recent first ladies is color. And she has a great body, so I'd show off her arms or her back."
Expect tons of sketches about what the first lady should wear, but (if tradition holds) the actual design will remain a secret until Jan. 20.
