Michelle Obama - Inaugural dress

(This is probably the only time we get ourselves involved with politics...)

It wasn't Calvin Klein, neither was it Diane von Furstenberg.

The creative brain behind Michelle Obama's inaugural dress was Cuban-borned American Designer, Isabel Toledo, who is known as a master in geometric and pattern shapes.

The pale gold sheath dress (with matching long coat) was just perfect for the significant occasion. Without a doubt, the "shiny armour" complements her complexion impeccably and we love how the silhouette appears fashionable yet very graceful for a first-lady. Deliberate clash of emerald green pumps was a great effort by Mrs Obama to deviate from the often cliché styles of first-ladies.

This isn't the first time that Mrs Obama wore a number by the talented Parson Graduate.

In fact, Obama appeared at a New York City fashion world fund-raiser in a black outfit by Toledo last June.

And in case you're wondering, none of them made it.
