What they wore on Inauguration Day

Posted By on Thu, Jan 22, 2009 at 3:28 PM

Now that I'm back in the office — after burning up the road to D.C. for a trip that didn't go exactly as planned (read about it here: Straight From D.C. to the Q.C.) — I can take the time again to peruse random fashion and shopping blogs. What were people saying about fashion on Inauguration Day? It's a tired story now: What did Michelle Obama wear? The pretty greenish-goldish-yellowish ensemble from lesser known Isabel Toledo for the swearing-in ceremony and a one-shouldered, off-white gown from Jason Wu for the evening extravagancies. Blah, blah, blah.

Then of course there was Aretha Franklin's hat. I have to admit, it did kind of steal the show.

But what about the millions of people who crowded the Mall and the city's streets, though? What were they wearing?


I'll tell you what they were wearing: Anything to keep them warm, and anything with Obama on it.
