All Eyes On Inauguration - Did You Check Out What Michelle Obama Was Wearing

Yesterday was inauguration day and watching the people and hearing the speeches really set the tone for the next four years and, ironically, the way Michelle Obama and her daughters embraced color, really reflected the color trends for 09’ that I blogged about last Friday.

Throughout the years I have learned that designer fashion always influences bridal and floral trends. Michelle Obama’s inauguration day dress was a beautiful lemongrass color and she accessorized it with green gloves and pumps. The two girls, Melia and Sasha, also donned beautiful colors; one wearing vibrant blue and the other pink and orange. Like I said last week, I see more and more brides embracing nontraditional colors like Michelle’s yellow and chartreuse, or Sasha’s pink and mango.

For the inaugural balls the First Lady chose a soft, feminine, ivory chiffon gown. This look hit on another bridal trend I talked about last week, that brides love ivory, as well as, blush pink and cream tones. And to enhance the elegance of this classic look, incorporate candlelight, crystal pieces, and antique silver and gold. It came easily for Michelle O with that gorgeous smile!

So in 09’, take a tip from the Obama girls and embrace color, elegance, and simplicity!
