It's a big day for the Obamas.
While watching President Barack Obama be sworn in publicly for his second term in office, Michelle Obama
and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, looked on proudly from the platform in front of the Capitol.
But not all eyes were on the Commander in Chief, who officially started
his term on Sunday. Many Inauguration watchers have been eager to see what the women in his life would be wearing.
The First Lady, who is sporting a new do
, dressed in a navy Thom Browne coat and dress with the fabric inspired by the textures of a man's silk tie.
She accessorized with Reed Krakoff boots and a jeweled belt and gloves from J. Crew and earrings designed by Cathy Waterman. At the end of the Inaugural festivities, Michelle's entire outfit will go to the National Archives.
Malia, 14, also wore an ensemble by J. Crew, including the Double-cloth Lady coat in plum. And her sister Sasha, 11, wore a Kate Spade coat and dress.
