Obama attended the 59th presidential inauguration wearing a raspberry-hued look designed by Los Angeles-based designer Sergio Hudson. The former first lady wore a matching coat, turtleneck and trousers with Hudson’s signature gold belt. Obama finished off the look with a silk face mask by Christy Rilling and Stuart Weitzman shoes.
To create Obama’s inauguration look, Yene Damtew consulted with Obama’s wardrobe stylist Meredith Koop and makeup artist Carl Ray. Since Obama was going for a monochromatic look, Yene Damtew says she knew “the hair would stand out a lot on its own.”
