Jason Wu Inciting Paparazzi Frenzies in Taiwan

>> Jason Wu is back in his hometown of Taipei, Taiwan — where he was born and lived until he was nine — for his brother's wedding on Sunday. But the trip hasn't been business as usual for Wu, who designed the bride's wedding gown and the bridesmaid's dresses: “It’s been crazy. I was told I would have to prepare at the airport and get private security because there were going to be people following me. I’m not used to that. Who am I, Victoria Beckham?”

The designer — famous for dressing Michelle Obama for the Inauguration — met with Taiwanese president Ma Ying-jeou on Thursday and presented him with a dress to give to his wife, first lady Chow Mei-ching. “I hope she wears it,” Wu said. But that's not the only dress catching attention — Wu has been warned that there may be paparazzi crashers to the wedding: “Apparently people are trying to get the first shot of her dress. We had to keep the location a secret. I was told people might follow me to her house or that I would have to change cars. It all sounds a little bit like Mission Impossible. I’m like, I’m just a fashion designer.”
