Leading Lady to Steal the Spotlight

19 Jan

As I scrolled through the pages and pages (and pages and pages) of custom sketched designs by the likes of Carolina Herrera, Badgley Mischka, and Karl Lagerfeld, just to name a few, specifically mused for the leading lady’s presence at tomorrow’s inauguration I realized for the first time the substantial role political figures play in influencing fashion.  While many are anxiously waiting for our new President to take on the world, a select few may be more or less anticipating what Mrs. Obama will be wearing to this monumental event.  

From Jackie Kennedy’s flawless style to Michelle Obama’s promising fashion sense it really should come as no surprise that the inaugural gown of each First Lady  is actually collected and showcased by none other than the Smithsonian Museum. This does a great deal to explain the dozens of sketches, from a plethora of designers, overwhelming the future leading lady’s selection of inaugural masterpieces. Below find just a few of my favorites…beginning with the hopelessly patriotic to a little more sophisticated… for the full collection please visit WWD Online  tell me which are your favs…

  I mean if Michelle Obama is going to help change an entire country, she mind as well look good doing it, right?

Happy Inauguration!!
