Well President Obama’s 2nd term has officially begun and what better way to end the celebration by recapping the fabulous style from the festivities. Take a look at some of the Style Highlights from the 57th Presidential Inauguration.
First Lady Michelle Obama looked stunning in this custom made Thom Browne. Browne is typically a Menswear designer, but I’m sure that will change. He designed this one of a kind coat for the First Lady and was inspired by the print of a man’s silk tie. She wore J. Crew gloves and Reed Krakoff boots during the outside ceremony. Sasha wore Kate Spade and Malia wore J. Crew. The blues and purples reigned supreme for the first family.
And the anticipation for the President and First Lady’s entrance at the Inaugural Ball had me on the edge of my seat. I saw quite a few sketches of gowns that were designed for this special event, but I had no clue to what her choice would be. President Obama looked very dapper, but let’s face it…it was all about the First Lady. She wore a ruby Jason Wu chiffon and velvet gown. Like the saying goes…if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. Jason Wu designed her gown for the 2009 Inauguration Ball and this year he did not disappoint the First Lady. She also wore Jimmy Choo shoes and a handmade diamond ring by Kimberly McDonald. Many people were shocked and some were upset that she chose to go with Jason Wu for a 2nd time. They felt she should have chosen a different designer to “spread the love.” I think she made an excellent choice. You do not know what the other dresses looked like and she went with what she felt was the best choice. Bottom line, she looked stunning!
Alicia Keys wore a red Michael Kors gown and can we talk about Jennifer Hudson’s waist in this black gown? I’m starting my workout routine tomorrow!
Check out Eva Longoria’s salmon colored coat and I LOVE the bow detail on Dr. Jill Biden’s coat as well. These are other photos from the weekend’s festivities.
