Beauty and Fashion at President Obama’s Inauguration!

Not only was I blown away by Beyonce singing, “The Star Spangled Banner,” (even if it was prerecorded and lip synched!)  I was also blown away by her manicure!  The orange hued was so vivid it was nearly red!

I loved looked Michelle Obama‘s Inaugural Ball look!

She wore a red Jason Wu custom design paired with Jimmy Choo pumps and Kimberly Macdonald for Forevermark diamond jewels.

And while we may not all have regular opportunities to wear designer dresses and sashay to a live performance by Jennifer Hudson, there’s bound to be a big night when you may just want to channel your inner Obama!

1. Embrace a bold shade of red: This ravishing chiffon halter evening gown is sophisticated and ladylike for a special occasion. (JS Boutique dress available at select Nordstrom locations.)

2. Bring out the bling: A sparkling set of bangles adds a touch of excitement to any formal look. ($60 at

3. Kick up your heels: A polished pair of satin pumps pulls the lovely look together beautifully. (Michael Antonio ‘Love Me’ heels, $30 at


Michelle even knows how to rock a coat and gloves!  She wore a Thom Brown navy-silk, checkered-pattered coat and dress, a belt and shoes from J. Crew, necklace by Cathy Waterman and a cardigan by Reed Krakoff.  She later wore Reed Krakoff boots, and added J. Crew gloves to her look.
