Mrs Obama, 45, has already been named a fashion icon by magazine editors, fashion designers and a flurry of bloggers. Her fashion sense first took centre stage when she was photographed by Vogue magazine in autumn 2007. Now that she has become the First Lady of the United States, probably all fashionistas eyes are going to be in everything that she’ll wear.
At the Inauguration day of President Obama, the first lady unveiled her inauguration outfit – a sparkling golden dress and matching coat designed by Cuban-American designer Isabel Toledo. Notice that silver pin at Mrs. O’s neckline during the inauguration ceremony. Some thought it was a necklace; others called it a collar on the Isabel Toledo dress.
Well it turned out to be a necklace. The piece is a Victorian paste brooch,once meant as a sash decoration. It came from Carole Tanenbaum Vintage Collection, who offers a premiere collection of vintage costume jewelry. We love that Mrs. O would wear a historical piece on such a historical day! She is simply a sophisticated and vibrant woman.
