A Little Something Superficial But Fun: Michelle Obama's Inauguration Outfit:
Amid all the splendor and joy that was today's inauguration, as a fashion-conscious gal, I couldn't help but be curious about what Michelle Obama would be wearing. Please indulge me the luxury and fun of talking about something completely superficial for a change from the usual punditry and angst.
Didn't the First Lady look spectacular? Like a goddess. I gasped when I saw the outfit (designed by the Cuban-born Isabel Toledo). Chartreuse metallic brocade tea-length coat over a matching empire-waist, beribboned sheath dress and matching cashmere cardigan. And the sparkly brooch at the top of the sheath dress? Magnificent. The final, ultimate cool touch was the light green leather gloves (by J. Crew). She looked splendid, don't you think?
