The former first lady looked marvelous in merlot at the inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Former first lady Michelle Obama’s style always turns heads, but her Inauguration Day outfit was especially show-stopping.
Obama arrived at Wednesday morning’s ceremony in a stunning jewel-toned ensemble that showed off her impeccable fashion sense.
The 57-year-old paired the merlot-colored coat with a wide-legged jumpsuit by South Carolina-based designer Sergio Hudson, according to New York Times fashion critic Vanessa Friedman. But it was the first lady’s accessories that really had onlookers buzzing.
Obama tied her outfit together with a matching belt with bold gold detailing at the buckle that added a touch of sass to her well-tailored look.
The former first lady walked in with her husband, former President Barack Obama, and the couple wore matching black face masks.
Many other female political figures wore jewel toned outfits on Inauguration Day, including Vice President Kamala Harris and first lady Jill Biden. Harris, in her signature pearls, donned a beautiful ankle-length ensemblealso by Sergio Hudson, as well as designer Christopher John Rogers. Jill Biden selected an ocean-blue tweed coat, dress and matching silk face mask by emerging American designer Alexandra O’Neill.
