Michelle Obama's Inaugural Outfit

I know many people have already been comparing Michelle Obama and Jacqueline Kennedy re: fashion. Here's a look at their inaugural outfit picks. First lady Michelle Obama wore a sparkling yellow-gold sheath dress with matching coat by Cuban-born American designer Isabel Toledo. She paired the outfit with olive green gloves and shoes. It has been hailed as a bold choice--I'm inclined to agree since she avoided the overdone red/white/blue look many former First Ladies have selected. I'm pleased she ditched the passe' hat.

Jackie wore a taupe wool coat/dress with sable collar and muff designed by Oleg Cassini. She traded her black pumps for fur lined short boots for the walk in the snow.
