More fashion history for Michelle Obama.

The first lady's gown for the 2013 inaugural will be displayed at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History for a year, and will be a key exhibit as the museum celebrates the 100th anniversary of its first ladies exhibition.

It will be the first second Inaugural Ball gown to be so honored.

Jason Wu designed the ruby-colored chiffon gown, which will be paired with the first lady's Jimmy Choo-designed shoes.

The display starts Tuesday.

From the Associated Press:

"While the Smithsonian traditionally collects each first lady's first inaugural gown, second gowns are usually shown only in presidential libraries. This is the first time the museum has displayed a second gown.

"Curators hope to start a new tradition of temporarily displaying these second gowns before they go to the National Archives."
