If you are as talented as designer Jason Wu, lightning can indeed strike twice to your career. First Lady Michelle Obama arrived to the Commander-in-Chief inaugural ball last night wearing his stunning ruby red gown, marking the second inaugural she chose to wear one of his creations.

In 2009, at the first inaugural she surprised fashinistas by wearing a gown he designed, a flowing cream-colored shoulder-baring confection. Jason, then a 26 year old rising-star designer had submitted his dress he had created for her consideration, just as other designers have customarily done. In 2009, the moment First Lady Michelle Obama appeared in Wu's ball gown, was the moment his already fast-rising career launched into hyperspace.
Designers were glued to the television watching the inaugural events to see what Mrs. Obama was wearing hoping it would be from their designs. Wu, 30, was watching the inaugural events on television with his staff in New York City.
Mrs. Obama appeared in Wu's flowing, belted chiffon and velvet red gown as she joined her husband onstage for their first inauguration dance at the Commander-in-Chief Ball. Wu told the New York Times, "I'm still floating." "It is a big surprise. The White House kept us pretty clueless until five minutes ago."

Over-the-counter medications control symptoms for 10 to 20 percent of allergy sufferers. Prescription medications and nasal sprays help another 30 to 40 percent. But about half of all allergy sufferers fail to find relief with these methods, whose primary aim...
