Former First Lady Michelle Obama has never been one to skimp on styling, but for the 59th presidential inauguration, Mrs. Obama turned every head in the nation.
Obama, 57, stunned in a plum suit and trench coat, created by a young black designer named Sergio Hudson.
Although you may not know his name, chances are you’ve seen his work on many of your favorite celebs and business moguls.
Hudson rose to fame as the winner of Bravo TV’s “Styled To Rock” and has designed for Amal Clooney, Issa Rae, Tracee Ellis Ross, Zendaya and Beyonce, to name a few.
The South Carolina native also styled Vice President Harris’ liquid sequin cocktail dress with and floor-length silk tuxedo overcoat for the “Celebrate America” television event.
“We kept the silhouette very structured and tailored, because that’s who the vice president is,” Hudson told Harper’s Bazaar. “But the liquid sequins give her glamour and shine, because her influence and the way she’s broken barriers is a light for so many of us. She shines so we can all shine.”
Now that Harris is in office, it’s nice to see her step up her fashion game and we look forward to seeing her collaborate with more edgy pieces.
As for Mrs. Obama, she came to slay as usual and gave us everything we thought she would and more.
