Always fashionable, Michelle Obama got a lot of attention for her inaugural outfits—both her yellow daytime ensemble and her ivory evening ball gown. "I think Michelle Obama deserves a medal for walking in high heels in a parade," Oprah says. "Toward the end of the evening, the president was saying, ...

The president's daughters, Malia and Sasha, also stood out in their brightly colored, matching J.Crew coats.
