>> INSIDER WIRE —Unlike Isabel Toledo, who is selling a version of Michelle Obama's inaugural day dress starting in March, Jason Wu doesn't plan on reproducing her inaugural ball gown for sale.  "This can’t be replicated — it will never appear in any form in my collection.  It has to be special."  Even before Wu saw Mrs. Obama wearing his gown, which the First Lady's style advisor Ikram Goldman told him should "sparkle," he treated it with special care, flying it to Chicago himself over Thanksgiving. "I was like, I'm delivering this myself! I didn't want anyone else touching it!" [Heard on the Runway, Teen Vogue]
