For the 2013 inauguration, Michelle Obama wore a Thom Browne coat & dress from his pre-fall 2013 collection, J-Crew pumps ($238). She changed into a pair of Reed Krakoff boots & added a J-Crew belt & pair of beautiful plum colored gloves afterwards.
The coat/dress the First Lady wore was custom-made & based on a men’s silk tie, it featured a navy-blue silk jacquard coat in a checkered pattern over a pale blue/grey dress in another checkered pattern topped with a bolero-style cardigan in royal blue by Reed Krakoff.
The first daughters followed in their mother’s footsteps, with Sasha wearing a Kate Spade coat/dress and Malia wearing a J-Crew coat/dress & statement necklace.
For the inaugural balls, Michelle wore a ruby-colored chiffon and velvet dress made by Jason Wu, she paired it with a handmade diamond embellished ring by jewelry designer Kimberly McDonald, and Jimmy Choo shoes.
At the end of the inaugural festivities, the outfits and accompanying accessories will go to the National Archives.
