Isn't it wonderful that we have a First Lady in Michelle Obama who is smart, supportive and stunning! As with most of her attire, Mrs. Obama didn't disappoint with her selection for her husband's second Inauguration. Fashion insiders were shocked when  she choose another creation by Jason Wu - a red semi-halter chiffon gown that showed off her famous well toned guns.

Honestly, although this year's gown was beautiful, it pales in comparison to the stunning one-shoulder white chiffon gown with amazing floral and Swarovski crystal detail designed by Jason Wu that she wore for the Inaugural Ball in 2009.

This year's selection for the public swearing in ceremony was just as fabulous -  a navy blue check coat with a jewel encrusted belt and bright plum gloves - not to mention the stunning new hairdo.

Although amazing, this year's outfit was a conservative departure from the intricately detailed lemongrass dress and coat ensemble of the first Inauguration.

Mrs. Obama wore a simple blue a-line dress and blue cropped cardigan for the official swearing in held on Sunday, January 20th. She wore the same cardigan the next day with her dress for the public ceremony, just like we all have done at one time or another.

Whatever the occasion, the FLOTUS never disappoints with her modern yet classicly chic attire. I look forward to seeing what her second term wardrobe will bring...

Peace and Blessings,
