First women Melania Trump, Michelle Obama, and Hilary Clinton were all looking stylish on Friday, January 20th, at the inauguration of Donald Trump. Each First Lady arrived in elegant looks that represented their own personal style.

The United States’ most recent First Lady, Melania Trump attended the inauguration of her husband in a custom baby blue cashmere midi length dress by Ralph Lauren. The dress had a cowl neck and a wrap effect on the bodice. Melania paired the dress with matching baby blue gloves and pumps.

Melania made an outfit change and let her hair down in preparation for the inaugural ball that was held later on that evening. Mrs. Trump’s evening gown was creme colored and off the shoulder with a thin red belt and a slit to show off her legs. The dress was a collaboration between herself and French designer, Hervé Pierre. Pierre was the former creative director of Carolina Herrera and this is where he and Melania met and also where he created looks for Laura Bush and Michelle Obama.

Michelle Obama radiated elegance in her dress that she wore to the 45th inauguration. Michelle’s dress which was made of red and black tweed was created by Jason Wu, one of Michelle’s favorite designers. Michelle even wore a matching coat dress that was also by Wu. Michelle loves the designer so much that she actually wore his designs to both of her husband’s inaugurations, as well as other events. This boosted buzz about the designer significantly during the years that her husband was in office.

2016 Presidential Candidate and former First Lady, Hilary Clinton was also in attendance at the swearing in ceremony. Hilary is known for her stylish pant suits and she opted in to wear another one this past Friday. Hilary’s ivory three piece suit was by Ralph Lauren, which she paired with a nude clutch and nude kitten heels. It’s said that Hilary’s choice in designer and color was a representation of her pledge to women. There is irony in the outfit choice of these first women as they all wore an individual color from the American flag. Melania in all blue, Michelle in all red, and Hilary in all white. One might even think the three women called each other to plan this arrangement.
