wore a bright solid color to the swearing in ceremony, but it was by Cuban designer, Isabel Toledo, not Maria Pinto. It was a vibrant gold/green color that you don’t see very often, but Michelle definitely has the confidence and complexion to pull it off. We also really liked that she wore a slightly darker shade scarf and opted for a completely different shade of green for her shoes and gloves. Those dark green pumps were a bold choice!
For the inaugural balls, Michelle wore an asymmetrical gown by Jason Wu, an emerging designer Michelle is familiar with. We could have sworn it was Marchesa at first, though! It was lovely to see Michelle in a color we haven’t really seen her wear before…cream…and again, it was her quiet confidence that really allows her to pull any silhouette off. She looked comfortable and completely at ease with how her figure looked in the dress. We thought it was magical and we can’t wait for better photos of the dress to hit the web.
