what she didn't wear
what's she wearing, what's she wearing......move the camera. come on. ok. now I can see it. ah. beautiful. yellow. great color on her. what shoes though. God, pan down so that I can check out the shoes. oh! damn! she's seated. love that neckline. what is that? crystal? stunning. great coat. classic yet modern design. Timeless....... They're all so mellow in that family........ I wonder if the older kid is getting bored..... She looks bored.... Cute little coat..... She looks bored to tears. Wonder what's going through her mind.... "these tights itch", "I should've snuck my nintendo", "who decided leather gloves are warm?" Yes. Must be, she just stuck them in her pocket. More fidgeting. I'd die. Let's see how Michelle handles this. ooh. nice stern, disapproving-yet loving glare. great technique M. Lovely. oh here comes the star spangled banner....tears. more tears. love my country. sigh. Can't wait to see what she wears tonight.... While, my fellow bloggers around the blog pond are fervently scribing posts on Isabel Toledo this evening, I've decided to instead, post a few of the submissions that didn't make the cut for the Inaugural Ball.
Winter white peau de soie. So crisp. But maybe too 'wedding shoe' ish?
How do you choose? I've always like the look of a cashmere cardi over a ball gown.
betsey johnson Oh, Betsey, you're still so whacky. Cart wheels!...but not this time.
isaac mizrahi ...Can do no wrong in my book. I'd choose this so that he would be the Elton to my princess Di.
and in the end, Jason Wu wins. ....what's she wearing, what's she wearing...... great arms, who knew......uh. wow...ok. wait a minute....um..... I'll let the fashionista blogs rip this one to shreds. in the vein of uncle tim , I raise my eye brow, casting a leery glance over my glasses and finally announce, 'carry on!'
I sort of like how almost, dowdy and red, white and blue his design is. It's just, kind of 90s pretty. He's Oscar, who does he need to prove anything to. you know?
But I did love her yellow suit. It was just gorgeous and I thought the olive colored gloves with it were brilliant.
for the money, Aretha's hat totally stole the show though.
I think she looked great, because she radiates happiness. She wears the clothes, the clothes don't wear her.
I would have liked to see her in the Mizrahi. But white is a trad color for the First Lady.
Anyhoo, darling, please go to my blog and leave a comment on one of my Obama posts. They're my memory poem, my time capsule of this moment we are all sharing and enjoying. I'd so love for you (and your readers) to be a part of it.
xo xo xo
Love your blog and read it DAILY.
at first I thought she looked like a giant marshmallow, but the tv was stretched on Fox and then they unstretched it - very very weird. she got skinny instantly - did anyone else see that? very strange. I ended up loving the dress and him, boy, how sexy can one man be? he had this move, while they were dancing, he would put both arms around her. he's so in love with that woman. do you think they did the nasty the first night in the WH? I would have, with him, of course. ok, I'm NOT talking about the president! I'm talking about someone else, uhhhh, let's see, ok = I was talking about JZ!!! and Beyonce!!! hehe not really. I vote for Isaac myself - OH OH OH the little one said something about hoping it wouldn't last too long, and the older one said - it better! he's the first A-A president! isnt' that the cutest thing? I have never seen America as happy as we were yesterday - it was amazing.
I thought Michelle looked amazing in both outfits.
I really loved her gown. Many seemed to think it was bridal but I didn't think so. I thought it was just youthful enough (showing off her killer arms and shoulders) for her without being too sexy for the occaison.
I loved the color of the yellow, but I kept thinking about how cold she must have been. I hope she's had an hour or two to soak her feet!
