Monday night, January 22nd, First Lady Michelle Obama astonished Americans as she stepped out in a Jason Wu design for a second time! For the past few weeks, all the gossip of the fashion world has been over which designer Michelle would choose wear to the Inaugural Ball. No one predicted the first lady would wear the same designer for two consecutive Inaugural balls; however, if there’s one word that describes Mrs. Obama’s style, it’s just that – “unpredictable.”
Michelle Obama looked glamorous, as if bringing back old Hollywood style to the White House. The powerful, ruby red color of the gown was complimented by the elegant airiness and graceful movement brought by in by the chiffon and velvet fabric used in the design. Mrs. Obama completed her look with Jimmy Choo shoes, a a handmade diamond ring by Kimberly McDonald.
It has been reported by a White House official that immediately following the Inauguration festivities, the gown as accessories will be taken immediately to the National Archives.
A first lady can never go wrong in “Reagan Red” – definitely fashionably correct. What do you think of Mrs. Obama’s look? Who did you think she would wear?

They are everywhere! Oversized, cable knit sweaters are sweeping across the globe as one of this fall’s “must have” pieces. You see some stars wear this piece and look amazing; however, others struggle pulling off the look. Have no fear! Anyone can wear this fashion; you just have to watch the style of sweater you choose. So, how do you wear an oversized sweater?
Remember, we are still women and should show off our curves. Wear your oversized sweater with a pair of skinny jeans or leggings! This look will allow you to look chic in your trendy sweater, while simultaneously showing off your feminine legs.
The one body shape that might have trouble pulling off this look would be the apple shapes, women with larger busts and waistlines, with smaller hips and legs. However, there is a way! Try wearing the oversized sweaters that gather at the end and fit snug at the hip. It is also important for the apple shapes not to invest in cable knit texture. Clean lines are best, and the gathering at the hip will accentuate the small hips and legs.
The only “don’t” of oversized sweaters would be to wear one with a baggy pair of jeans. Remember, although this season’s trends may lean toward the masculine look on women, with oversized sweaters and boyfriend blazers, this does not mean we need to actually look like men. We always want to keep that sexy, feminine silhouette!
