Nicolas Ghesquière is the creative director for the house of Balenciaga. He worked previously as an assistant to designer Jean-Paul Gaultier, then at Pôles designing their knit wear line followed by a series of inauspicious assignments with different companies including the Italian house of Callaghan. In 1997, at the age of 25, Ghesquière was the surprise choice to head Balenciaga. He is known for his sense of "silhouette," pairing high-waist skinny pants with a voluminous "blouson," or a tightly cut wool jumpsuit with billowing sleeves. His work soon turned Balenciaga into a critically acclaimed fashion house.

Gareth Pugh is a fashion designer who has received global recognition for both his outlandish clubwear and his novel approach to redefining modern luxury. Style.com describes him as the "latest addition to a long tradition of fashion-as-performance-art that stretches back through Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, and Vivienne Westwood to the eighties club culture of Leigh Bowery.” Klaus Nomi has also been suggested as an influence on Pugh. Pugh's collections are autobiographical rather than referential, and draw inspiration from Britain's extreme club scene. His trademark is his experimentation with form and volume and he often uses "nonsensically shaped, wearable sculptures" to "distort” the human body almost beyond recognition."

The result is modern and wearable but consistently noteworthy. Case in point: Out of an elite cast of wannabe Michelle-dressers, it was Jason Wu—or rather his white, one-shouldered, silk-chiffon-and-Swarovski-crystal gown—that was selected by the First Lady for her inaugural-ball appearances.
