President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama

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.

Inauguration1

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 one of my other favorite power couples, Jay-z and Beyonce looked amazing as well. Mr. Carter wore a Tom Ford suit and Mrs. Carter wore and Emilio Pucci gown as she SAAANNNGGG the National Anthem.

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!

Inauguration4

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.

What did you think about the style of the 57th Presidential Inauguration?

This weekend the Red Carpet was definitely hot. From the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards to the 2013 BET Honors. We were blessed with some great fashion. Here are a few of my favorite looks from the Red Carpet over the weekend.

2013 BET Honors

These ladies gave us high splits, plunging necklines, and sequin in shades of green and black

Brandy, Halle Berry, Alicia Keys

Body hugging gowns and high splits again. Halle Berry is loving prints this award season, and black is always classic

70th Annual Golden Globes

NeNe Leakes, Adele, Eva Longoria

Black is always a staple on any Red Carpet. NeNe and Adele look a little to frumpy for the occasion. Eva Longoria is always ready to show  of her sex appeal and she does with this black gown.

These ladies have a case of the blues. I love Rosario’s dress, but wish the neckline wasn’t so high. Nicole Richie looks elegance in her blue lace dress, and Lucy Liu went bold with this floral ball gown

Jessica Alba, Gabby Douglas

It always great to see a pop of color on the red carpet and both Jessica Alba and Gabby Douglas went bold in peach and neon.

Jennifer Lopez, Halle Berry, Kerry Washington

My winners of the night! I love the neutral tones on all gowns. I think Halle Berry’s print is striking! The hint of purple was an amazing touch. I’m loving the sheer nude looks from Jennifer Lopez and my all time favorite Kerry Washington. These ladies look amazing.

Who were your winners in the style department for the Red Carpet?
