Robin Givhan Envisions Michelle Obama in Green

The winning design.

The Post held a contest for readers to submit sketches of an inaugural ballgown for Michelle Obama. Robin Givhan picked a winner from almost 200 entries, designed by 23-year-old Katie Ermilio. "What [Michelle] needs is a dress that speaks to her personality, that exemplifies the magnitude of the occasion and that in some magical way exudes optimism, democracy and elegance. And most of all, it should be pretty," Givhan writes. You know, no Diana Ross showgirl outfits. Rihanna's likely to wear enough feathers for everyone. [WP]
