Former First Ladies' inaugural outfits

21 January 2009


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.
