FLOTUS Fashion: Michelle Obama 2013 Inauguration Style Recap
This weekend has been momentous for the US citizens and for fashionistas across the nation. Hundreds of thousands packed National Mall to watch as Barack Obama was sworn in for a 2nd term as the Leader of the Free World. The rest who could not be there in person sat in front of their TV screen wide-eyed as he delivered a great speech. Most importantly, eyes focused at Michelle’s new bangs and her Inauguration Weekend fashions.
As the First Lady of The United States, all eyes are on you during the Inauguration weekend and Michelle Obama did not disappoint. Whether it’s kicking off the weekend for a makeover project at Burrville Elementary School in a simple blue and black printed sweater, cotton pants, and riding boots to stain bookshelves or it’s glomming it up in Michael Kors, it’s official our FLOTUS knows fashion.
Michelle and her daughters Sasha and Malia later attended the 2013 Kids’ Inaugural Concert on Saturday evening, held at the Washington Convention Center to celebrate military families. Keeping it simple again, she wore black fitted pants and a white Alexander McQueen Victorian bustle piquet shirt from the Resort 2011 collection. She styled with a fabulous bejeweled belt and red kitten heels.
As President Obama was officially sworn in for his 2nd and final term on January 20, 2013 the First Lady held her family Bible for her husband rocking a royal blue dress with a tapered waist and A-line skirt made of what looked like a silky material with a jacquard pattern by designer Reed Krakoff. She topped the dress with a same-color knit bolero-style cardigan with three-quarters-length sleeves.
Being the fab repeat rocker that she is, she started the 2nd term of her being First Lady with sequin Michael Kors dress that she was seen wearing back in 2009 now. The difference between 2013 and 2009 is these fab bags that she just had cut in for her 49 birthday this past Thursday.
As her husband was sworn in at National Mall she chose a navy silk jacquard coat and dress from designer Thom Browne. The coat was paired with a statement belt and kitten heel pumps both from J. Crew. She later changed from the kitten heels into black leather and suede knee-high boots from Reed Krakoff. It’s admirable that she continues to pair high in brands with more affordable brands to complete glam looks.
For the Inaugural Ball, Michelle again chose to wear a Jason Wu creation: a long halter-neck ruby chiffon custom gown with velvet details and an armful of sparkly bangles. She wore Jimmy Choo shoes, and a ring by Kimberly McDonald.
