What Will Michelle Obama Wear: Inauguration '09

It seems that every fashion designer on the face of the Earth has submitted a design for Michelle Obama to wear to the Inaugural Ball, and rightfully so.  Our next First Lady has been stylistically compared to the likes of the legendary Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis which is a huge honor and creates high expectations for Mrs. Obama.  The fashion world is on pins and needles as we anxiously await the huge decision.  The First Lady To Be's choice will make a statement, and it will likely guide the course of American Fashion over they next few seasons.  If she sticks with her usual M.O. the dress will be elegant but not overly extravagant. With designers from Karl Lagerfeld to Betsey Johnson submitting designs, so tough decisions must be made but I'm sure Mrs. Obama won't disapoint.  Some of my favorites include a boatneck, cap sleeve Marc Jacobs, the asymetrical, belted waist Michael Kors and Monique Lhuillier gowns, and the more elegant play on the traditional DVF rap dress.  Fashion First...Muah!
