Every four years in January, Washington, D.C., plays host to the country’s biggest “prom.” Inaugural balls bring out happy winners, administration bigwigs and a gown — on the first lady — that will become a part of history.
A new exhibition at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History displays some of those gowns. NPR Special Correspondent Susan Stamberg took her dance card to the show. [Copyright 2012 National Public Radio]
