WWD caught up with a much more verbal Wu to talk about the much-discussed design. Mrs. Obama "surprised me again," he told the mag. "She's really good at it ... I was so nervous. You'd think I wouldn't be since I'd experienced it before but I really was."

The FLOTUS previously wore a white one-shouldered Wu design to 2008's Inaugural Ball. "I can't believe it. It's crazy," Wu told The New York Times Monday night. "To have done it once was already the experience of my life. To have a second time is tremendous."
