All we can say is "WOW!" Barack Obama's memorable second inauguration was nearly overshadowed yesterday by his wife's impeccable sense of style. America had been waiting to get a glimpse of the fashion-forward First Lady on her husband's big day, and when we finally caught the first glimpse, we were not disappointed.
We saw Michelle Obama yesterday morning as she was leaving St. John's Church wearing the same beautiful Thom Browne coat that she wore the day before when President Obama was sworn in for his second term as President of the United States. Mrs. Obama added some sparkle to her outfit by pairing an embellished, high-waisted J. Crew belt with the coat, and a pop of color with purple leather gloves. as stunning as this daytime look was, we were all holding our breath to see what and who she would wear at the inaugural ball.
Jaws dropped when the President introduced his "better half and dance partner" onto the stage. Michelle floated, wearing an absolutely stunning ruby red Jason Wu gown that was simple, elegant and memorable. Her hair was perfection (loving the new bangs), makeup was flawless and charisma undeniable. And of course, she sported some fierce Jimmy Choo shoes.
Perfection. Congratulations to our President and First Lady!
