The Inauguration: A look at Style and Grace

Politics aside, you have to admit that the new first family being sworn in today exudes modern STYLE and GRACE.

And of course, we cannot discount Michelle Obama's personal STYLE. She mixes budget friendly pieces with great accessories and wears them well.

I just heard them say on the news that Michelle said she'd not yet finalized what gown she'll be wearing to the balls tonight. I quite imagine, whatever she chooses, they'll be a stunning couple.

Her outfit today (muted yellow suit, long brocade jacket) is beautiful!

They are a genuinely beautiful family. Tall and toned, Michelle is a class act all the way who exudes style and radiates confidence. Of course I love that she wears budget-friendly pieces but she's also got a keen eye for up and coming designers like Thakoon. What an exciting day for the country and for fashion :)

I voted Republican, but still I find myself rooting for them-they are a lovely family!

These are some fantastic photos ... thanks so much for posting them!

I was ga-ga over Michelle's (yellow? green? both?) Isabelle Toledo suit, this morning (Inauguration Day)! It looks something like a floral-pattern pressed onto tweed. Whatever it is, it's just breathtaking. I can't wait to see what she'll wear to the Ball!

I love that she doesn't just do the suited look that so many first ladies have succumbed to.
