I was stunned at Michelle Obama's dress for the inauguration ceremony. She simply glowed. The color was a unique and perfect choice -- thank god for her chocolate brown skin tone. I have a feeling we're going to be seeing a lot of interesting color choices this presidency.
Her dress invoked a sense of freshness and optimism. The butter yellow, paired with muted green, gave off feeling of spring time -- a time of rebirth and change -- symbolic of the new presidency and policies. The dress was designed by Cuban-born American designer Isabel Toldeo. "There was talk of [Obama] choosing a bigger-name designer, someone like a Ralph Lauren or an Oscar de la Renta," style.com's Phelps said. "Her choice of Isabel Toledo shows that she really stands behind the entrepreneurial on-the-rise American designer."
Smart choice indeed.
Michelle Obama paired her yellow dress with vintage jewelry and gorgeous green leather gloves.
She wore "Glacier" Jimmy Choos. An interesting choice for a First Lady.
