    They look great! Michelle’s outfit is beautiful and classy. She will provide a new sense of style for sure. Best wishes to the new first family!

  • rustgirl

    She would set a better example if she held her head up and wasn’t always so hunched over. Not flattering at all compared to some outfits she has worn – her stomach looks like she is pregnant.

  • lips,tits smack that old ass.

    YAY.WE HAVE A NEW PRESIDENT .YAY, YAY. YAY.

    @ #49, The man can easy well look in the mirror and note his traits, and identify himself as a BLACK MAN, because he IS a black man, regardless of his “white mother”. It’s evident that his black traits are more prominent!
    A percentage of the Black population today has another race somewhere down the line. Yet, they are ALL constituted as BLACK. What is he suppose to do? What is he suppose to say?
    I am sooooooooooooooooo f-in sick of the race controversy . So sick of it. So sick, even now Matin Luther King’s speech has still not come to past. When are we going to get over it? When are we?

  • retch

    Very pretty, most flattering, but what is that thing she’s wearing over the charming dress and under the lovely coat? It looks like a cardigan…

    I understand that it’s VERY VERY COLD out there today, but may she could have taken a leaf from Princess Di’s fashion book of tricks and worn a version of silk thermals under the dress. That cardigan or whatever it is is not so good.

  • Me

    I always wonder why the first ladies wear dresses on such a cold day. Why can’t/don’t they wear pantsuits or at least boots?

    He IS half white. His WHITE traits are what made him intelligent. NOT his black ones. Anyone with half a brain knows this.
    But Obama WAS elected ONLY because his skin is tan.
    Didn’t Martin Luther King, the womanizing cheater, say that he hopes one day that man can be judged NOT by the color of his skin ?
    So much for that idea. Because the ONLY reason Obama was elected was BECAUSE of the color of his skin.
    He is an EMPTY suit.
    If we’re all back here in 6 months we’ll see if our opinions are still the same. Everyone have a good one. Ward and June are going to have lunch now. Good Luck to all! You’re going to NEED it ! Ha ha.

  • Mary

    The dress is beautiful but completely inappropriate for daytime wear. Rhinestones?? Someone needs to teach her how to dress and how to walk. She lopes like a man.

  • fat first lady

    she needs the overcoat to cover all the weight she’s gained.
    maybe she’s hanging out too much with Oprah who tops 200 lbs.

  • lala

    Great day for America….but awful dress!!!!! It´s winter what is she doing in yellow anyway? And the cut…terrible…

  • wooden legs angelina

    What a wonderful day for America and the world watching … this women and couple is one to admire. The Obama’s truly inspire.

  • Jolie-Pitt

    am so happy for them. Great Change. Hope that this great change will happen in all the blog, gossip site no hating again. Everyone will come together. No more curse word. CHANGE

  • Amanda

    How hot is OUR FIRST LADY?! SHE LOOKED GOOD!

  • lalalove

    @ #58 Jayden. Are you looking for a grave reaction from me with such an ignorant, obtuse retort?
    I hope you’re not white, because if so, then you just put your feet in your own mouth.

  • lalalove

    I just noticed that a person on here is going by the alias “lala”. I think I need to change my “lalalove” then.

    Congratulations to now “President Obama”. Since America is the powerhouse of the world, Obama is now the most powerful man on earth. All you bigoted f-ers, and White Supremacy groups can now stay home and eat your hearts out, or preferably eradicate yourselves. Because the day has come to past

    ******************************************************************************************

    Why not?

  • Rackyjam

    all is free to voice there opinions, whether it be negative or positive. At the end of the day Obama and Michelle will still be President & first lady…what will you be? It’s a happy day, maybe not for you but for many and with that said who cares what Michelle has on, she is an intelligent woman, a lawyer, a great mother, a wife, the first lady. This is a miraculous day in history and i know i am happy to see it.

  • ace tomato

    It’s a lovely, classic outfit. Elegant.

    I did not vote for Obama, but now that he is officially our President I hope other Republicans like myself can keep any criticism of the Obamas to any policy decisions we disagree with, and not attack them as people.

    The worst thing, IMHO, is when someone from the opposing political party does the, “He’s not MY President, I voted for (fill in loser’s name)>” That happened a lot with Bush.

    I hope we can take a higher ground and agree not to degrade the office of the President of the United States anymore, no matter who it is.

    Best wished to Obama and our country!

    OBAMA DON’T GIVE THE POOR ALL THE MONEY I WORKED FOR…GIVE THEM MY WORK ETHIC INSTEAD!!!!

  • SAnrdalee

    Awful color. The little girls looked beautiful. Why, oh, why doesn;t someone advise her how to dress!?!?! She’s got so much to work with (nice figure, hair, long legs) and she wears a baby puke green stiff itchy looking beaded dress. Dear Lord.

  • LAblonde

    An awful outfit with an inappropriate amount of glitz for the time of day and the occasion.

  • Julia

    The outfit would work better for a gala or something like that, I wish this lovely family all the happiness in the world, but Michelle, it’s is now time that you invest in a good suit. Honeslty, blue skinny jeans and rhinestones are no longer acceptable for you to wear. I just hope he brings the real changes he promised.

  • mfr

    Is she pregnant?

  • kathy

    I love the dress, she does her own thing, her body is tight…Barack is white? are you serious # 49 ?.that is the joke of the day…

  • Ali

    She looks wonderful. What a proud moment and how elegant they both look – aware of the significance and honoring it beautifully.

  • Trishy

    Wonderful, amazing inauguration! Have loved Michelle’s outfits for the pre inaugural events and thought she looked amazing. What happened today? She is a stunning and beautiful woman and whoever designed and styled her outfit today should be shot! It was awful. Dreadful.
    After the fabulous camel and black ensemble and the black and purple both of which were F A B U L U S S, she stepped out today in this matronly, awful outfit.

    I love the first family, they are incredible and so I would like to be Michelle’s stylist from now on. :)

    lalalove says it’s not okay to discuss race, yet it’s okay for him/her to insult a former president in whatever manner he/she chooses. can you say HYPOCRITE?

  • Ha!

    She’ll be offered help with dressing herself soon enough. This was as bad as the dress she chose the night he won the election. Girlfriend needs some help because she’s a very pretty woman and can look a lot better than this.

  • anonymous

    GRANDMOTHERLY!!!!!Ugh. We know she means business.

    The Dow is down 233 points. I thought the Messiah was supposed to change all of this? Can people stop celebrating and get out of lala-land? Where’s the promised change? Where’s the hope?
    What a bunch of baloney and people need to wake up and not depend on a president (Dem or Rep) to fix their lives.
    The new prez ain’t gonna pay your bills, yo!

  • Proud

    Who cares what she is wearing; it is a great day to be an American!

  • lillian

    i love the Obamas. They are both BEAUTIFUL people! Michelle’s dress definately a WINNER!

  • yikes

    Michelle looked great today. I love her dress and the coat. The ensemble, including the green gloves, was very well put together. BUT those teal emerald green SHOES clash! How could she have not picked a better color pair of shoes. Oh horrors were it not for the fact that they are down on her feet, where few can see them.

  • ~*CaThErInE .M. ViLLa*~

    Beautiful Outfit very Lady Like

  • Peach

    I liked the outfit, the color was great on her and at the luncheon she removed the coat and that was a cardigan under it.

    What is didn’t like was the fit, the shiny stockings and the lining in the coat.

  • LuckyL

    God Bless America!

  • LuckyL

    Lol, ignore the racists, bigots, and sour grapes y’all *rolls eyes*

  • G-girl

    the President looked distinguished as always, and she looked as she always does… out of her league. Very nice dress, but it didn’t fit her figure properly… and the kelly-green shoes with olive-green gloves – yikes! She needs to contact Angela Basset’s stylist for direction…. and someone please teach her how to walk like a lady!!!

    ________________________________

    If you’re going to attempt to counter my argument, please come with a bit less accusations, a bit less ignorance, and something thought through. Please refrain from putting words in my mouth. Do tell, when did I insult a former President?
    In addiction, I believe I said (and I’m paraphrasing here), “…when are we going to stop looking at a man’s race, and that King’s speech has still not yet come to past”.

    I couldn’t care less what the heifer wears.
    THIS white man has worked his fingers to the bone for years for this country’s government and is now ready for the “change”.
    So how about this: I stop working now. I file for welfare, free housing, free utilities, food stamps, and free education (for my childrens)while all the ghetto rats take a true step forward to take care of my white butt and all the other white folks that paid the ghetto rat’s debts for all these years.
    We don’t have a President. We now officially have a half-breed clown with a low IQ running the country. Unfortunately, he’s partially white, but since the blacks all ignore that, so will I. He’s nothing but a patsy, a puppet, and a huge joke to stir more hatred among the races. Hysterical. Like shooting goldfish in a barrel. My wife and I made a small fortune selling screen print tee-shirts with his stupid face on them with nothing but the word “Change”. It’s taking advantage of the idiots, yes, but it’s what everyone wanted, so just to prove my point of race vs. issues, I sold over 500 of those crappy, cheap shirts in less than an hour. I can stick his image on a toilet seat and it will sell because idiots don’t think about what it MEANS…they just see the pale “color” of his face (not many black traits…small lips, nose, ears) and buy, buy, buy without regard how they will pay their bills. Oh yeah, that isn’t a problem…it’s already paid for.
    The blacks wanted “theirs”….now I want “mine”.
    I’m just happy to be able to blame the black man for my woe’s now.
    WHAT A GREAT CHANGE!!!!!
    WHOO HOO!
    WHAT A GREAT DAY!!
    BTW…he did the WORST job repeating the oath. Yep…it’s going to be a great four years.
    Wake me in 2012 when the joke is over.

  • atcs

    Since it looks like a buttonless coat, would have liked to see the lining either match the coat, a paler color of same, or be a really fab stand out color. Shoes and gloves to match lining or contrasting color . IS THAT A SEAM I SEE IN THE LINING? The seam in the lining should NEVER show. The lining should ALWAY be sewn with the seams facing in, not against the body. Don’t know who actually sewed this coat, but they need to be fired. Other than that, Mrs. Obama looks great, the color looks good on her.

  • LuckyL

    Some people need to re-read McCain’s concession speech, especially his own party.

  • Anastacia

    very nice!! the color suits her^^

  • PEGGY SMITH

    Brad is it pure jealousy, or just plain ignorance. I would like you to post a picture of yourself; but since it’s about an intelligent, classy, and beautiful woman it’s obvious that you know nothing about such matters. Her size and what she is wearing is not important. It’s the role of the First Lady to ignore people like you and the rest of the haters. It’s probably not about her size at all. Cowards rarely tell the truth, that would be too much of a brave thing to do. You’re hiding what’s really in your heart, and the ugliness of your heart just reared its ugly head. Thank God everyone does not think as small as you do.

  • groundcontrol

    Awful material. Like a 1960 cocktail dress. Tacky.

    The lines of the coat and dress were fine.
