Look For Less: Michelle Obama’s Inauguration Ensemble

By  January 22, 2013

We just can’t stop talking about the First Lady’s fiery fashion choice for last night’s Inaugural Ball. After much anticipation about what designer she’d go withMichelle Obama decided to celebrate the evening in a custom made, ruby red Jason Wu gown featuring a Kimberly McDonald white gold pavé diamond encrusted ring at the collarbone. Polished off with sparkling silver bangles and matching earrings, the result was nothing short of glamorous. While the FLOTUS has the luxury of having Jason Wu as her go to designer for when she needs a perfect gown, the rest of us can still get her look with similar styles for less! Don’t be intimidated by the daring hue; red, is indeed, the hue to pursue right now.
