Inauguration 2013 : What Michelle Wore

Wasn’t the inauguration and the ball just lovely yesterday? Everyone was watching to see what First Lady, Michelle Obama would wear and I was certainly no exception. I loved last year’s Jason Wu gown (which was totally *bridal worthy*, by the way), with it’s hand sewn flowers and floating hemline.

For the 57th Presidential Inauguration Reception on Sunday she chose American designer Michael Kors and her wardrobe staple J. Crew for belt and shoes to accessorize for morning festivities.

And as a side note, I loved Sasha and Malia’s coordinating coats on Capital Hill (Kate Spade and J. Crew, respectively). And Michelle’s Thom Browne was a tasteful, refined choice for a coat.

I totally didn’t see it coming but she wore a Jason Wu again! I absolutely adored it!! The color was so striking on her and the neckline was simply dazzling. Not to mention the luxurious fabric just draped beautifully on her figure. Now the big question: Did it top last year’s ethereal dreamlike gown? You decide!
