All eyes will be on the Obama Family today as our country swears in President Barack Obama for his second term- marking the 57th Presidential Inauguration in America’s history.
There is no doubt we’ll see an abundance of decadently detailed gowns and handsomely tailored tuxedos at tonight’s ‘Inaugural Ball’- yet we find ourselves most excited to feast our eyes upon the apparel choice of the always-elegant Michelle Obama. In an effort to provide a platform for our predictions of what she will wear- we did a little digging into past First Lady Inaugural fashions…
In 2010, Laura Bush proved simple can be stunning as she radiated in red alongside her husband, George W. Bush. The dress was designed by fellow Texan, Michael Faircloth.
Michelle Obama was all about embellishments in 2009, as she sparkled in a stylish one-shoulder gown from Jason Wu.
In 1993, Hilary Clinton chose a brilliantly-beaded royal blue dress designed by Sarah Phillips for Ball honoring her husband, Bill.
While each fashion figurehead has their personal opinion of what Michelle Obama would look most-magnificent in, we’ve compiled three looks we’d love to see her sporting…

Rebecca Taylor Frayed & Fitted Strapless Gown, Nissa Jewelry Gilda Cuff, Nine West Sheryl:

Only time will tell if the red, white and blue ball-gown theme holds up, yet if history tells us anything- the First Lady will be looking fabulously flawless. Cheers to tonight’s Ball and our President’s inauguration!
