Black Celeb Style: Inaugural Elegance

Black Celeb Style: Inaugural Elegance

The fashion was on a high note as stars celebrated President Obama's second term

January 25, 2013


Celebs and notables high tailed it to Washington D.C. to attend the 57th Presidential Inauguration to celebrate President Obama's second term.

First Lady Michelle Obama attended the official Inauguration Ball in a beautiful crimson gown custom made for her by Jason Wu. Beyonce’s "controversial" performance of the National Anthem was as beautiful as she was in her Emilio Pucci gown. Earlier that day, little Malia Obama rocked a coat so hot that J. Crew is discontinuing the color out of respect for her family.

Jay-Z, Boris Kodjoe and (surprisingly) 2 Chainz all caught our eyes, looking the most dapper of them all. Angela Simmons dared to be different, as she took a risk and revealed quite a bit of skin. 

The Hip Hop Ball featured the Look of the Week via Lala Anthony, who was ravishing in her vintage Lillie Rubin gown.

Let us know who's look made you want to wave your American flag, and who made you want to wave your red one!
