With the inauguration still fresh in everybody’s mind, many people are psyched that Michelle Obama followed the advice of HSUS’s president Wayne Pacelle and decided to go fur-free for the special day. Too bad we can’t say the same about the man who designed Michelle’s gown.
At the Inaugural Ball, Michelle Obama wore a Jason Wu dress and the designer subsequently received 4 million hits the very next day. Well it turns out that Wu has some massive plans for his fall 2009 collection…and by massive I mean massively cruel!
Jason recently shared with Access Hollywood:
“I’m doing a significant fur collection, and the message will be all about luxury.” “Fashion is also sort of escapism, and women need beautiful dresses to lose themselves in.”
I mean what do you even say to that? Firstly, cruelty is never beautiful — duh! But also it seems like a really bad time to be investing in this idea of “luxury,” well with the economy in such rocky condition and all. Oh you silly, silly man!
