Get her haute look: Michelle Obama at the 2013 Presidential Inauguration

First Lady Michelle Obama with President Barack Obama at the inaugural parade
While her husband, President Obama, was busy making history yesterday, First Lady Michelle Obama was busy making waves in fashion, yet again. First, she wore a custom made Thom Browne dress and A-line coat that had everyone buzzing. (If the name sounds familiar, Thom Browne was one of the participating designers in the Target + Neiman Marcus collaboration; you can buy the blazer here). The jacquard coat, which was seen on Mrs. O when she headed to St. John’s Episcopal Church with her family yesterday morning, then later cinched with a jeweled belt (a J. Crew Collection Rhinestone-encrusted Sash from the bridal collection) at her husband’s historic, second-term inauguration, was made to resemble a silk necktie. Drawing comparisons to Jackie Kennedy for her style, The First Lady wore the coat two ways; with J. Crew Valentina Patent Pumps and then with Reed Krakoff Leather-Suede Thin-Strap Knee Boots. She added a pair of purple J. Crew cashmere-lined leather gloves to complete the look.
