POLITICAL FASHION: The 57th Presidential Inauguration

First Lady Michelle Obama’s new haircut (the beauty world all agrees that bangs suit her perfectly) was definitely a trending topic for the past few days, but today everyone is talking about the fabulous custom Thom Browne coat she sported at the public swearing in ceremony, Mrs. Obama added a little flair and showed off her curves with an ornate belt by J Crew (seems to be her favorite retailer). Under that fabulous designer coat, the First Lady donned a Thom Browne dress and Reed Krakoff cardigan for the afternoon festivities.

Not outshining their mom, the First Daughters looked amazing (and age appropriate) in their purple wool coats. Malia, the elder of the Obama girls, rocked a plum J Crew coat while little sister, Sasha, sported a lilac Kate Spade coat. These two are definitely following in their mom’s footsteps as fashionistas in training.

The Obamas and the crowds assembled were serenaded by some stylish ladies today including King Bey who se moving rendition of the National Anthem had many in the crowd near tears. Beyonce arrived with her husband (Jay Z) in a Christian Dior coat which she removed revealing an amazing Pucci gown while she performed.

Now the fashion world waits to see who will be the designer to dress the First Lady for tonight’s inaugural balls.
