    First lady Michelle Obama wears Thom Browne coat and dress

    by Associated Press | January 21, 2013 at 9:26 AM

    First lady Michelle Obama is wearing a navy Thom Browne coat and dress on the morning of her husband’s second inauguration.

    The fabric for her Inauguration Day attire was developed based on the style of a man’s silk tie. The belt she is wearing is from J.Crew, and her necklace was designed by Cathy Waterman. She is also wearing J.Crew shoes.

    Her daughter Malia is also wearing a J.Crew ensemble. Sasha Obama is wearing a Kate Spade coat and dress
