Inauguration Fashion I:

Michelle Obama In Isabel Toledo
For The Daytime

Michelle-obama2 There's really only one thing people are interested in today, so we'll get back to our usual reporting tomorrow.
We still don't know who is making The Big Gown, but the Today Show reports that Michelle Obama's sunny yellow coat and dress were designed by Isabel Toledo, the Cuban born, New York based designer who briefly served as creative director for the Anne Klein label.
Toledo is a favorite of The Shophound, so we are always happy to see her get worthy attention.
We're sure more details will emerge, but the textured wool ensemble appears to have a matching cardigan or scarf.
So far, so good.
UPDATE:
A closer shot on TV reveals the coat fabric to be a heavy, intricately patterned floral lace (!?) perhaps attached or embroidered on a heavier wool backing.
