There was a lot of chatter about Michelle Obama’s outfits yesterday, as expected. Personally I loved the inaugural dress and matching overcoat designed by Isabel Toledo. I thought the lemongrass color was gorgeous on her, the texture looked season-appropriate and the neckline was elegant and beautiful. And I absolutely adored the coordinating J. Crew green gloves and Jimmy Choo green patent pumps. It takes a special and confident woman to pull that off.
Unfortunately, I didn’t feel the same about her ball gown, designed by Jason Wu, that evening. Although I loved the crystals and appliques, I didn’t think the cut was very flattering on top or to her waist. Although, after what was certainly a long day, I’m sure she was grateful for the free-flowing design. All in all, she looked beautiful and elegant, yet approachable.
What did you think?
