Skip to comments.Michelle Obama wore Isabel Toledo for the Inauguration

Michelle Obama was expected to wear either Maria Pinto, Thakoon, or Oscar de la Renta for the Inauguration ceremony, but the First Lady surprised us in a good way, when she chose a striking Isabel Toledo design.
The champagne yellow ensemble consisted of a gold-embossed coat and a yellow brocade shift dress with diamanté neckline. The coat was made of wool lace in a silk net, with silk radzimir underneath and a layer of pashmina for warmth.
Mrs Obama paired down her outfit with green patent Jimmy Choo Glacier pumps and olive green gloves from J. Crew.

As the wife of the messiah, would that be holy Toledo?
Didn’t do a thing for her. She walks like she’s got a corncob stuck between her legs. A freight train could run between her legs and never touch either leg.
Did they say how many bolts it took to cover?
How much did it cost? We heard all about the cost of Sarah Palin’s wardrobe.
We’ve been told how Michelle Ma Belle is the new Jackie O’Kennedy and that women will be buying things based on her fashion sense.
So what’s the price tag?
If they can criticize Sarah Palin for what the Republican campaign paid for clothing, we can at least keep a running tab on Michello Obama's spending. And if the designers are just giving clothes to the first lady, then I would count that as a bribe.
I don’t care for the color but the design is nice. Why isn’t she wearing it proudly though? She’s stooped over and looks angry on a very happy day for them.
how many articles do we have to have about her freaking dress!!!!
Looks more like “Derelicte” by Mugatu.
Heck if I know. She looks like obozo just told he wanted a divorce.
till we have eeked out the last laugh we can get from that hideous dress...........
till we have eeked out the last laugh we can get from that hideous dress...........we will keep posting.
They used the spare drapes from the Oval Office.
$2,000 to $3,000.
how many articles do we have to have about bread and circuses?
And that goes for the MSM, not just at FR.
CindyDawg, while I'm not making any excuses for Miss “...for the first time I am proud of my Country...” Michelle, I think she is a very insecure woman. Not only does she have a body the size of an average man, she also has that ethnic portion made even larger by her ‘pear shape’. She seems to try and make herself disappear (or appear smaller) with her posture, which only accentuates the protrusion of her lower body. While her arms are quite beautiful, the bad posture only dwarfs the better part of her figure.
Just an observation.
well that has happened yesterday.
I’ve never heard the color of baby poo described as champagne-yellow.
we all need our laughs.....I was on a news blackout yesterday......I am enjoying all the threads....let me have my laughs
BIG. F’N. DEAL.
Besides, she looked like a frumpy old bag that had drapes on her. And look at that crabby face on her in that pic!
i’d rather have an obama free zone until he does something. enough of the bad speech analysis , michelle’s dress, obama’s blackberry. this is the kind of stuff fox and friends discuss since they have no real talent.
Till we’ve all vented our loathing for that inappropriate Mother of the Bride dress. Besides, we’ve got nothing else to do.
I have to agree with you....she leans her head down in a very unattractive posture that a lot of tall women have....add in the big butt and the bow legs and she looks awkward in a lot of clothing. Even her facial expressions are of an odd, insecure nature. Only when she is angry does she seem true to form.
He has done something. He’s punked this country.
These designer threads just aren’t doing it. Never seen someone who looked this bad in near everything she wears. She should try normal clothes off the racks.
I have no talent so I'm gonna laugh at his ugly old lady. Don't intend to do it in public that much cause it's too easy of a target.
I think she realizes they have bitten off more than they have the energy to chew.
The inauguration outfit was too sparkley, especially the rhinestones at the neckline. It looks like she's wearing a tiara around her neck. It would make a nice grandmother of the bride suit for a Spring evening wedding.
What ever she paid, it was WAY too much. I wish these morons would tell her the truth about how she looked. Both dresses were an embarrassment. On the bright side, the children looked adorable.
The outfit at the Lincoln Memorial was lovely and very becoming on her, and much more appropriate for yesterday than what she wore. That outfit yesterday was more appropriate for a dinner party than a daytime event of this importance. The evening dress was beautiful fabric but poorly constructed.
She is very ungainly and not in the least graceful.. she is basically a large-boned woman and thin-heels are not becoming in the least, she should wear the more chunky high heel IMHO... she needs to work in her posture. I suspect being tall she grew used to hunching over and has yet to overcome that habit.
I wonder if she could pull of the “Magnum”?
Man is she ever dragging him. It looked like she was leading when they danced as well.
Punked? Interpret, please! I haven’t caught up with this jargon.
“Only when she is angry does she seem true to form.”
Now that you mentioned it, that seems to be the only time she gets her head above her shoulders (and moving left to right). ;D!
