Own a Piece of (Designer) History with Inaugural Collections
Tory Burch, Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan and other major designers have created pieces especially for the inauguration. Tory Burch and DVF each did a canvas tote ($70) with their individual interpretations of President Obama. Zac Posen, Donna Karan and Derek Lam all created T-shirts ($45) and Alexander Wang has created a $40 scarf. The collection is available at the Presidential Inaugural Store located at 625 E Street NW in Washington, DC, or at the PIC Online Store.

What Should Michelle Obama Wear?
WWD.com asked that question of designers and got 35 sketches of proposed outfits to cover the inaugural ceremonies. I hope she'll pick a New York-based designer like Michael Kors (love the one-shoulder blue dress) or Peter Som (the winter white cashmere is fabulous). And I really hope that she skips the dreadful dress Zac Posen sketched (what was he thinking?) and go with something grand like the Monique Lhuillier red dress. What do you think?

You Decide: Michelle Obama's election night dress.
She's been named the best-dressed woman in the world, but Michelle Obama's election night dress left some fans wondering if the First-Lady-to-be could still lead the style world. My vote's in for Michelle Obama to still set a wonderful fashion vibe (in fact, many of the dress styles she wear work for most women); the red and black Narciso Rodriguez (thanks to Fashiontribes for digging up that one) that she wore on election night was simply ruined by a black cardigan. Take the poll to vote on this look.
