Ever since Jackie Kennedy walked out in her inaugural ivory gown and cape, the First Lady's style has become a talking point around the world. And with Michelle ‘can she save the US fashion industry' Obama taking up that position now, something tells us it's only going to get bigger. So to celebrate the new First Lady's seriously iconic choice of a chic asymmetric Jason Wu number, we've taken a look back over the inaugural wardrobes of four of the big-hitters. From Hillary's disastrous velour hat that she wore in 1993 to Laura Bush's 2005 Oscar de la Renta tulle gown, we've searched high and low for the all things inaugural fashion. Have a look below and tell us who you think gets it right and wrong.
Former First Ladies' inaugural outfits
Hmmm, not sure about this ensemble Hillary. Frumpy anyone?
Gorgeous colour as Mrs Clinton dons this number by young unknown designer Sarah Phillips at the Inaugural Ball in 1993.
Effortlessly chic as ever. We love...
This stylish First Lady helped design this cape and gown ensemble, not bad for a first-timer...
Laura's 2001 red-beaded Chantilly lace gown was not met with delight by the fash-pack...
Um, no. Really not sure about this. Really not sure...
That's better. The ex-First Lady looks classic in this piece back in 2005.
Love the colour, love the accessories. So unsure about the hat...
Sparkling at an inaugural ball at the Pension Building in Washington in 1981. Pure old-school glam...
