All eyes on inauguration fashion as First Lady wows in red Jason Wu dress – Alina Cho reports

As expected, style and fashion at the inaugural ceremonies did not disappoint. The First Lady’s wardrobe was the talk of the town. All eyes were on Michelle Obama’s fashion forward choices and she may have outdone herself yet again. CNN’s resident fashionista Alina Cho has the details in the fabric.

Thom Browne was elected for the coat and dress the First Lady wore on inauguration morning, turning heads for choosing a designer known more widely for his menswear. Another surprise came at the grand inaugural ball. It shocked viewers and designer Jason Wu himself that the First Lady should choose a gown by him again. She went with Wu for the first inaugural ball four years ago. But Alina Cho sums it up rather simply. “At the end of the day, she’s a woman who wanted to feel and look great,” she says.
