17. Thanks.

Aww she can't keep it - The National Archives gets it and all her accessories as soon as the ball is over. Sort of like Cinderella.

22. That was a beautiful gown, but presented some challenges when dancing together.



Glad to see that was remedied this inauguration.

20. Rachel Maddow was so funny, uncomfortably reporting that Michelle was wearing

Jason Wu and her shoes were Jimmy Choos, LOL.

24. Very striking couple

that seem to look better and better with the passage of time. I'd even amp it up and say they are quite glamorous - got their own Camelot going.

26. Love her hair that way. Love the dress (but it's not that flattering, IMO...all those gathers)

All those gathers at the waist aren't that flattering. But I love the color, the mix of velvet & chiffon, the top part, and I love her hair that way.

27. I agree.

Okay, I don't usually comment about Michelle's attire, but I think she should really emphasize her long torso, rather than trying to make it look shorter. That dress is gorgeous, but yeah, not flattering on her. IMHO, o' course.
