Belle of the Ball
Wow! What a whirlwind weekend.
Now that the 57th inaugural festivities have concluded, I thought you might enjoy a recap of First Lady Michelle Obama’s inaugural wardrobe. Of course, the major reveal last night was that our dearest Michelle selected Jason Wu again as the designer for her inaugural gown.
Many fashion editors were hoping that the first lady would elevate another unknown designer to A-list status with her choice, but I liked the symmetry of Michelle bookending her historic dresses. For the official inaugural balls, Jason Wu designed a stunning long halter-neck ruby chiffon gown with velvet details.

The buzz around Washington is that Michelle will take a more active role promoting the president’s agenda, so maybe there will be less focus on her style this administration and more focus on her brilliant example as a leader.
Here’s a look at the wardrobe the first lady selected for the weekend’s public events:
On Sunday for the President’s official swearing-in ceremony at the White House, Michelle wore a navy and black dress by Reed Krakoff.
On Sunday night at the National Building Museum for an Inaugural Reception, Michelle repeated a gorgeous black sequin dress by Michael Kors.
For inauguration day festivities that included a morning worship service at St. Johns, the swearing-in ceremony at the Capitol, the inaugural luncheon and presidential parade, the first lady chose a silk jacquard navy check dress and topcoat by Thom Browne with one-of-a-kind boots by Reed Krakoff.
