Inauguration Dresses: Michelle Obama

08Dec08

Looks like Michelle Obama won’t be short of options for the upcoming Inauguration Ball. Dozens of designers have submitted raw sketches of their bid to dress First Lady-elect. Check out the submissions:

Betsey Johnson…. needs to cut it out…. now.

Karl Lagerfield for Chanel

mobama-koi-suwannagate

mobama-marcjacobs

Marc Jacobs… this could work, but I’m still rooting for the big homie Carolina Herrera

mobama-michaelkors

Michael Kors… this sort of straddles the casual-evening fence.

mobama-monique-lhuillier

Monique Lhuillier…. and it’s definitely one of my picks. I won’t be surprised if Oprah pops up in this

mobama-nicole-miller

Nicole Miller… one of my picks as well

mobama-oscar-de-la-rents

Oscar de la Renta… knowing Oscar de la Renta, the flowers on top of the dress are probably in foil/gold embroidery

mobama-peter-som

mobama-peter-som1

Peter Som

 mobama-rachel-roy

mobama-rachel-roy1

Rachel Roy…. my girl! Love her

mobama-reem-acra

mobama-reem-acra1

Reem Acra…. I have a feeling these would look much better once completed. Reem Acra has amazing choices in fabric!

mobama-rodarte

Rodarte… love the dresses for the girls, not loving the one for Michelle though

mobama-tracy-reese

Tracy Reese… can you see the glitz and the glam that will be happening up top, once a finished product? Or is it just me?

mobama-tuleh

Tuleh

mobama-zac-posen

mobama-zac-posen1

Both Zac Posen

I love the Carolina Herrera, Monique Lhuillier and Reem Acra choices. The Reem Acra sketch is a little raw and doesn’t fully display the potential of the design, but if you are familiar with Reem Acra, you’ll know what I mean and see what I see.

    Great minds must think alike, because I just blogged about Michelle O’s sketches too :). I really like Monique Lhuillier’s, Karl Lagerfield’s, and Badgley Mischka’s second pic. LOL at your Betsey Johnson comment, the dress is a bit much. But I love her individuality though. The dress, not so much.

    i love carolina herrera, DVF, ellie tahari, isaac mizrahi, marc jacobs, oscar de la renta, and rachel roy. i like a lot of the other ones, but i feel these are most appropriate.
