What Everyone Wore: The Presidential Inauguration

While yesterday was spent gushing round the world over Michelle Obama's ruby Jason Wu dress, worn at the Presidential Inaugural Ball, there were many other fashion drool-worthy moments that took place throughout the day's festivities.

So we thought it appropriate to highlight some of the remarkable and classic fashion selections made by the First Lady, as well as the stars who came out in celebration and performance for the big occasion!

Before being publicly sworn in, Michelle Obama held the Bible for the Presiden's private sewaring in, wearing a custom-made Reed Krakoff dress and cardigan.  Later, she would attend the National Prayer Service at the Washington National Cathedral in a gorgeous custom-made ivory wool coat and matching sleeveless dress with a stunning jeweled neckline.  And nude pumps.

Pink and purple were the colors of choice for the adorable First Daughters, Sasha and Malia Obama.  Shasha Obama went for a periwinkle Kate Spade coat and dress and Malia opted for J.Crew.

Dr. Jill Biden had some fashion statements of her own to make throughout the day, arriving at the ceremony in a cream dress and sleek gray coat by Lela Rose, and finished the evening at the Commander-in-Chief's Inaugural Ball in a lovely pale blue Vera Wang gown.

Jennifer Hudson crooned while the First Couple had their first dance, wearing a gorgeous, form fitting black gown, showing off her ever amazing new body!  And Alicia Keys sang an adapted version of "Girl on Fire" wearing a stunning red Michael Kors gown.

The fabulous Beyonce closed the ceremony with a lovely rendition of the National Anthem, wearing a beautiful Emilio Pucci gown and Lorraine Schwartz jewels.  And we can't forget That Coat!  Michelle Obama walked hand in hand with her husband during the celebration parade in an amazing checked coat creation by Thom Browne with Reed Krakoff boots and J.Crew accessories.

And last, but definitely not least, we recap once more: The Dress.
