The one-shoulder, white, beaded gown first lady Michelle Obama wore to the Inaugural balls is going on display.
Mrs. Obama plans to donate the gown to the first ladies collection at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History. The Smithsonian says all first ladies since 1912 have contributed to the collection, though not all have parted with their ball gowns.
The Obama gown will join those currently on display from Helen Taft, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosalynn Carter and Laura Bush.
