Here are the facts, gals: First Lady Michelle Obama brought the glamour factor to her husband's second swearing-in ceremony in a dress and coat by Thom Browne with a chic jeweled belt.

Here's the official press pool scoop on the outfit: "The First Lady is wearing a navy Thom Browne coat and dress. The fabric was developed based on the style of a men's silk tie. The belt she is wearing if from J.Crew, the cardigan is designed by Reed Krakoff and her necklace is designed by Cathy Waterman. She is also wearing J.Crew shoes. At the end of the inauguration, the outfit and accompanying accessories will go to the National Archives."

Pretty darn fabulous, don't you think? We love how the look incorporates a few of her favorite things--a belt, a pop of color, and an up-and-coming American designer--and still feels fresh and new. What do you dolls think?

Class, Class, Class and she looked fabulous.  I can't imagine what you people look like that didn't like her look.

What an UGLY outfit!!!  Of course Shelly  NEVER looks good in anything she chooses to wear.  She needs to stand up straight and stop slouching and for heavens sake do something about that ridiculous over bite.

If you look really good at the Picture of her with her bangs in her face she is the spitting image of Zera from " The Planet of The Apes " Movies and I mean no disrespect at all am being totally serious here as to what I think she looks like. Kim Hinter would be proud I think......For those of you who do not know Kim Hunter Played Zera in the Planet of the Apes Movies.

No, I don't think it was fabulous.  She looked like a Puritan in that horrendous dress! And those bangs are not for a woman her age. What was she thinking? Puritan Separatist maybe? zoinks.

    Our favorite platinum blondes of all time

    When Madonna posted an image of herself wearing a full on Game of Thrones Khaleesi costume on Instagram last week we weren’t exactly surprised—this is the woman who rolled into the Grammy Awards wearing a tuxedo and a grill earlier this winter, so why not celebrate the Jewish holiday of Purim with a leather corset and a pair of tiny dragons? Still, we were hypnotized by her white-blonde, braided Daenerys Targaryen hair. Functioning as a bleached out cultural weather vane of sorts, it tapped into multiple obsessions at once—the return of "Game of Thrones" to HBO, spring’s new extreme hair lengths and, most notably, fashion’s current platinum mania. Our own love of ice-blonde hair—which transforms any look from everyday to extraordinary—has been well documented of late, but last night’s Game of Thrones premiere sent our platinum fever into overdrive. In celebration of fashion’s favorite hair color, a look at the best platinum moments in history.
