Inaugural Ball Gown


Yes. Ohyesohyesohyes. Jason Wu comes through once again.

The Inauguration Coat

Oh, Mrs. O…your coat is stunning! The tie-inspired fabric has been brilliantly executed by Thom Browne.

You. Look. Amazing. Thank you for setting such a stylish–and realistic–example.


First Lady of Style

For starters, every woman should be blessed with a husband/partner who looks at her this way. The expression on President Obama’s face truly takes my breath away…as does Michelle Obama’s dress by Ralph Lauren and necklace by Tom Binns. To top everything off, her slicked-back hair is the perfect choice for showcasing her incredible bling.

This fabulous woman’s style is positively inspirational.

Michelle Obama would definitely wear this.

Tracy Reese seems to crop up frequently in the First Lady’s wardrobe. And why not? Her clothes are classically lovely, fashionable, and affordable—with just the right amount of flirty thrown in for good measure. Best of all, they’re easy to wear because they’re designed to flatter a woman’s body.

I am absolutely smitten with this spotted jersey dress, part of the Tracy Reese new fall line. It’s available for pre-order on the Nordstrom Web site, and it’s already in my shopping cart. It’s the perfect style for the baby boomer woman—providing coverage for the imperfections that crop up as we get older, such as a spotty chest or jiggly upper arms. What’s more, the fullness of the skirt is the perfect camouflage for less-than-perfect hips, thighs, and rear.

I’m guessing Mrs. Obama will be sporting this in October—and she’ll look fabulous, as usual. For certain, it will be part of my cool-weather wardrobe.
