Since this is the gayest inauguration in the history of the country (“Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law” was a fist-pump, FUCK YEAH of a moment), let’s indulge in that grand gay tradition of oohing and ahhing over someone else’s clothes.
In this case, it’s coat porn for the ladies:
U.S. President Barack Obama is sworn in during the public ceremonial inauguration on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC.
Michelle Obama wears a Thom Browne coat accessorized with a J. Crew belt and gloves and Reed Krakoff boots.
THAT. Is simply STUNNING. What a gorgeous coat. The belt is to die for and we love the pop of raspberry with the gloves. Beautifully done, FLO.
And because the little Obama ladies are growing up right in front of our eyes, Sasha and Malia displayed rather enviable (for the grownups) coats themselves:
Sasha Obama wears a Kate Spade coat and Malia Obama wears a J.Crew coat.
We realize we say this every time we mention her, but my god, Malia is a CLONE.
