While all eyes were on First Lady Michelle Obama during the inauguration ceremony, Jill Biden dressed-to-impress too.  She made it clear she is not playing second fiddle when it comes to style.  The Second Lady was absolutely radiant all day and night.  She made a brilliant choice for the evening with a poppy-red strapless chiffon evening gown designed by Reem Acra, a Hollywood favorite.  Biden clearly understands that red is a stand-out color for her.  It compliments her vibrant, high-spirited personality.  This woman is clearly comfortable in her own skin, unencumbered by her age or status.  At 57-years-old, Biden still maintains a youthful vivaciousness and dresses in a manner that belies her age without crossing the line.

Jill Biden’s choice for the daytime inauguration ceremony was wonderful too.  She wore a bright red coat (and knee-high black boots) helping her stand out amongst the ubiquitous black coats sweeping across Capitol Hill.  Her bold, yet elegant and age-appropriate fashion choices sent a strong message to the fashion world, who will no doubt pay more attention to her.

I would give an honorable mention to Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.  She was elegance personified in a mauve ensemble accessorized with a string of large, pink and purple-hued Tahitian pearls.

This was truly an historic moment in world history.  As far as fashionistas are concerned these ladies rose to the occasion.  The White House now boasts a bevy of smart, attractive women who can play the part of muse for the fashion industry.  Michelle Obama made a subdued, elegant choice with her sunny yellow coat and dress, designed by Cuban-American Isabel Toledo.  I must admit, I expected more glamour from the First Lady who made a rather conservative choice, perhaps due to the current economic crisis?  Daughters Sasha and Malia were stunning and adorable (an interesting combination) in their bright J. Crew coats.
