It was a big day for Barack Obama as he was sworn-in for a second term as the President of the United States. While all eyes were trained on him I couldn’t wait to check out the ever so chic Michelle Obama and what the star attendees wore. For the official swearing in (the public ceremony was purely ceremonial) Michelle wore a Reed Krakoff blue jacquard dress. She also debuted a new hairstyle – blunt bangs.
The next day saw her wear a coat from little known designer Thom Browne that she accessorized with a bling belt and magenta leather gloves.
For the inaugural ball it was Jason Wu again, the Chinese-American designer who she catapulted to fame the last time around when she wore his ivory one-shoulder gown. This around she picked a red halter neck gown and Jimmy Choo shoes. Love how she is loyal to her designers.
Also spotted was mega couple Jay Z and wife Beyonce who sang the national anthem. I love how Jay Z ditched his anti-fit jeans and basketball caps in favour for a very snazzy Tom Ford suit. Beyonce ever the diva wore an Emilio Pucci gown and a Dior coat. But the real dazzler was the 30 carat Lorraine Schwartz emerald earrings she wore.

Another star that performed was Alicia Keys wearing a beautiful Michael Kors red gown.
I love how she made a twist to her popular song Girl on Fire into Obama is on Fire.
Also spotted in the crowd was Katy Perry and beau John Mayer. She wore a lovely Proenza Schouler coat. If memory serves you well, she famously sported an Obama manicure.
I do have to say, I MUCH prefer what she wore last time around. The lime-green Isabel Toledo coat and dress looked wonderful on her compared to this time’s subdued choice.
What do you think of Michelle’s style this time around?
