All the details of Michelle Obama's outfit trifecta
Michelle's chic styles for the inauguration.
She was glowing last night on stage at the celebration reception for President Barack Obama’s second term inauguration in a Michael Kors black sequined cocktail dress. And, as usual, the First Lady shows that recycling dresses is a hot trend — this isn’t the first time that she has been seen in this sparkly number —she actually wore this same dress back in 2009 for an official dinner. But this time around, she added a fab new accessory to the look — a chic new bob with stylish bangs.
During the day for the inauguration ceremony at the White House, Michelle tried out another flawless outfit — a dark blue silk dress by Reed Krakoff with a matching cardigan, reports the Daily Mail.

And today during Inauguration Day, Michelle’s outfit is “an all-American, high-low, coat-and-dress mix,” reports USA Today, consisting of “a navy Thom Browne coat and dress in a reflective fabric and a pattern based on the style of a men's silk tie. Under the coat, she wore a royal blue bolero-style cardigan by Reed Krakoff, over the Browne dress, which appeared to be pale blue or grey, with an A-line, panel-pleat skirt.”
