It's official — Barack Obama is the 44th President of the United States! While celebrites continue to pledge their allegiance, the fashion world's eyes are on First Lady Michelle Obama. Let's discuss her savvy choice for the We Are One concert on Sunday.
She decided on one of her American favorites: Narciso Rodriguez. Michelle is quite secretive about her fashion choices — most designers don't know about them in advance and are overjoyed when they see their goods worn by the First Lady on TV. But Narciso created two custom looks for Michelle's pre-inauguration festivities.

This black and camel coat and separate combo was subtly striking. To avoid being too conservative, Michelle wore a bold pair of white gold and diamond quatrefoil Loree Rodkin chandelier earrings with black diamond center. Not surprising, the stunning earrings cost $17,313. But back to her perfectly coordinated Narciso ensemble. It was smart, didn't upstage Obama, and flattered the First Lady. I like that she opted for separates instead of a simple shift; it created dimension. A woman after my own heart, the bejeweled neckline of her black blouse added a touch of pizazz. Michelle polished the look off with patent pumps and black leather gloves but ditched any sort of hosiery — this Lady is modern, indeed.
