On Jan. 21, Michelle Obama rocked an ever-changing display of good looking garb made by American designers. Every ensemble looked stellar, complimenting the First Lady's new bangs. However, the biggest stunner on Inauguration Day 2013 was the bespoke gown Barack's wife debuted at the Commander's Ball.
As seen and commentated on CNN, after the President of the United States, who launched his second term in office this weekend, spoke while wearing formal duds sporting white tie, his wife made her long anticipated entrance.
She was wearing a flowing dress by Jason Wu, the same designer who created Obama's frock four years ago for this very event. That one was white and this one was red, featuring a skinny halter top and a slender belt.
Interestingly, the fabric (a mix of velvet and chiffon) of this understated sartorial statement was made of a hue that contrasts to the blue clothing she had on during the rest of Inauguration 2013 Monday.
In the evening at this big shindig drawing 40,000 revelers, the FLOTUS was reportedly wearing Jimmy Choo heels, although the general public couldn't see them since her long gown put these mysterious shoes in hiding. As for her bling, Michelle donned a Kimberly McDonald ring with lots of diamond sparkle that will join the glorious ruby gown by Jason Wu and the Jimmy Choos, too, in the National Archives after Inauguration celebrations wrap.
Meanwhile, while still dressed to impress and to dance, too, Michelle was introduced by her husband who praised her "extraordinary love," her fierce loyalty, and her decided intelligence. Then the couple danced together while Jennifer Hudson sang an Al Green hit, one of the President's favorites called "I'm Still in Love with You."
The message? That Barack, who isn't the greatest dancer, is, indeed, still in love with his wife and she is obviously still in love with her man too. That said, the First Lady is also in love with American designer fashion, enough so to launch many big style makers' careers in the process, Jason Wu among them.
