Torrie's Take: Inaugural Fashion

It's a "Torrie's Take" Tuesday!

              Yesterday, I'm sure most of you were like me, glued to the TV watching all the Inauguration Festivities! Yes, it was all about celebrating President Obama's second term and our country's rich history.  It was also about all the major fashion moments!

 

Here's my take:

                  We start off with our radiant First Lady, Michelle Obama! Mrs. Obama started the day in a custom Thom Browne ensemble. Did I mention he's a local guy??? Browne hails from Allentown, Pa! The First Lady was so chic in this gray and navy piece. I absolutely loved the coat! After Church, she added her J. Crew belt, purple J. Crew gloves and suede, Reed Krakoof boots. Just a great look for her shape, her age and her new bangs just totally topped off the look for me! The gloves were the perfect pop of color! The only part of this that I didn't love was the little bolero sweater she wore over her dress. I thought it was dated. Next up the moment we were waiting for...her Ball Gown! The First Lady chose a ruby, chiffon and velvet gown by designer Jason Wu. Wu designed her Inaugural gown four years ago too, that moment put him on the fashion map! Mrs. Obama looked stunning! I do wish her gown was more fitted, but I assume she wanted to be comfortable. I love the bangles, it made the look fresh and hip. Her hair was perfect and youthful! Mrs. O completed her look with one of her go-to shoe designers--Jimmy Choo. She continues to prove that she is the Jackie O of this generation, a true style icon!

                  Now onto to everyone else! Dr. Jill Biden wore a lovely Lela Rose coat during the parade. Rumor has it the coat is already sold out at Nordstrom! I love the color and the big bow, it was very feminine! Beyonce A.K.A "Baddie Bey" wore a stunning black Emilio Pucci Gown and Dior Fur Coat! This look was EVERYTHING! She was so glamorous, I just couldn't take it! Her hubby Jay-Z was rather dapper in is tailored Tom Ford suit! Beyonce also rocked emerald, Lorraine Schwartz jewels. Black and Emerald green are one of my absolute FAV color combos! Emerald green is a major color this season, embrace it ladies! Finally I loved the berry hues of the day! I'm speaking about Kelly Clarkson and our nation's first daughters- Sasha and Malia. Kelly wore an ox-blood/burgundy coat with a bright, purple scarf. Her new blonde hair made both colors gorgeous! How cute were Sasha and Malia?! Malia wore all J. Crew, she looked amazing in her purple coat and ox-blood, infinity scarf! Sasha wore a deep-lavender, Kate Spade coat, with matching scarf and gloves. I loved how the Obama's complimented each other with all their outfits, including our President, who looked very handsome the entire day!

                Ladies, have fun with your colors combos and don't shy away from bright, bold colors in the winter!

 

Until next time...Xoxo :)
