Michelle Obama's Inauguration Dress Designs

October 5, 2015


As we patiently await the 2009 Inauguration which is clearly going to be the biggest celebration bringing in the New Year, just about everyone yearns to dress Michelle Obama for the event. The question is, what will she choose to wear?

Whatever Michelle Obama wears first to the ceremony and then the ball celebrating her husband Barack as the 44th president, she and her outfits will instantly become two of the longest-lasting images of modern history.

And there'll be global reviews from real style insiders as well as armchair critics mere seconds after the public gets its first glimpse of the new first lady, who is already considered a fashion icon.

“This isn't a fashion decision to take lightly”, says Bridget Foley, executive editor of W magazine and Women's Wear Daily, recommending Obama try on many looks before making her final choice.

“The dress will live in perpetuity and it will go into the Smithsonian,” Foley says.

Well, Michelle definitely has been receiving her share of dress design sketches as well as fashion tips and advice from just about every A-list designer you can possibly think of to help her in making a brain boggling decision.
