Everyone on the blogosphere has been anxiously waiting to find out what First Lady-to-be Michelle Obama will be wearing to the Inauguration and the answer is from Cuban-born designer Isabel Toledo! The above picture is Barack Obama and Michelle Obama departing Blair House for private church services before the inauguration ceremony. Our First Lady-to-be never fails to surprise us, always looking classy! Obama needless to say is always looking good as well. Its a beautiful day today and I can’t wipe the smile off my face, I should have been in DC! Do you like Michelle Obama’s outfit?

First Lady-to-be Michelle Obama will wear an outfit by Isabel Toledo at the swearing-in of her husband Barack Obama as the nation’s 44th president on Capitol Hill this morning, her office said today. There were no details of the outfit provided by Michelle Obama’s office, which has been tight-lipped about her fashion choices for the historic events today. Toledo is a Cuban-born designer who has worked under her own name for more than 20 years and briefly served as creative director for Anne Klein. Michelle Obama has worn her designs in the past during the presidential campaign. Her choice continues a penchant for the First Lady-to-be for designers of Cuban heritage – Michelle Obama wore two outfits by Narciso Rodriguez to the pre-inaugural events on Sunday. via WWD
