Mrs. Bush will share the limelight with her daughters, who have chosen to wear Badgley-Mischka gowns.
The designers have dressed the likes of Halle Berry and Beyonce before dressing the Bush twins.

SHE HAS SOME IDEAS AND YOU HAVE SOME IDEAS, AND THAT'S HOW WE USUALLY WORK. AND IT'S VERY MUCH THE SAME THING EXCEPT YOU'RE DEALING WITH SECRET SERVICE INSTEAD OF STYLISTS.))
