The morning after a stunning shift in history and what are we talking about. Michelle Obama's dress. My two cents is worth exactly less than that, but you're going to get it anyway. But first, here's the write up about their fashion from CNN.com!
NEW YORK (AP) -- Michelle Obama's striking red-and-black dress worn Tuesday night as her husband became president-elect of the United States was designed by Narciso Rodriguez. It was based on a style shown during Rodriguez's spring '09 runway show in New York.
Meanwhile, President-elect Barack Obama wore the same style dark-navy suit custom-made by Hart Schaffner Marx that he wore at the Democratic Convention, the company says. Hart Schaffner Marx makes its suits in the Obamas' home state of Illinois.
The couple's daughter Malia wore a red bubble-hem dress, and younger daughter Sasha wore a black dress with a bow.
So here's my vote - I loved it. I thought it was bold and individual, and she stepped out in style! A few others agreed with me.
That dress was unpretentious," Julie Gilhart, fashion director of New York's top-price Barneys clothing store, told the Times. "It said, Be who you are -- don't let someone else tell you how to be.'"
Nice to see things are back to normal!
