The custom-made red Jason Wu gown featured a full gathered floor-length skirt (ideal for dancing) fitted cinched waist done with a dyed-to-match duchess satin belt, round "key-hole" halter neckline (perfect to accentuate the First Lady's fabulous shoulders) with gold embellished ring and a plunging back.

The First Lady's red gown is inspired by this dress below from the Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2013 Collection:

Of course, this is now the SECOND Jason Wu "Inaugural Ball" gown the First Lady Michelle Obama has worn--above is the one she wore to the Presidential Inaugural Ball in 2009.

Congrats and Kudos to Jason Wu and his Team!!!
