First lady Michelle Obama has once again turned to designer Jason Wu, wearing one of his creations to her husband's State of the Union address on Tuesday.

Mrs. Obama wore a red organza tweed flounce dress by Wu to the event, accessorized with (per the Wall Street Journal) an Alexis Bittar flower pin.

Wu has become one of the first lady's trusted designers. The ruby-colored chiffon and velvet dress she wore to last month's inaugural balls was designed by the 30-year-old Wu, and he also created the white gown she wore to the inaugural balls in 2009.

She's also worn his designs to other events, and was even spotted in a dress from his lower-priced Target line last year.
