We are just moments into the Inauguration Day festivities, and the world has already begun obsessing over Michelle Obama‘s style. As I expected, she plans to wow us with each look. The FLOTUS stepped out wearing a custom navy Thom Browne coat and dress.
“The First Lady is wearing a navy Thom Browne coat and dress. The fabric was developed based on the style of man’s silk tie. The belt and gloves she is wearing are from J.Crew and her earrings are designed by Cathy Waterman. She is also wearing Reed Krakoff boots. At the end of the Inaugural festivities, the outfit and accompanying accessories will go to the National Archives.” White House official statement
Her daughter Malia is also wearing a J.Crew ensemble. Sasha Obama is wearing a Kate Spade coat and dress.
Thom Browne is the recipient of the 2012 National Design Award in Fashion Design, celebrated with a White House luncheon ceremony hosted by the first lady. Michelle wore his lace overlay dress for the Democratic National Convention in September 2012.
