Just hours after finding out that First Lady Michelle Obama had chosen an outfit of his design to the presidential inauguration, fashion designer Thom Browne shared his reactions and inspirations.

He said the inspiration for the coat in navy silk textured tie jacquard fabric with a fitted bodice and undulated skirt over a dress of navy, loden, gray, pink and white jacquard based on a men's silk tie jacquard fabric, was the first lady herself.

    I think she looks Beautiful! A very nice outfit for a very nice lady! :)

    Oh, and that "Winterlynn" person needs to shut her mouth because I bet she's just mad she can't afford such a pretty dress and that SHE has no manners.

    Ya,well sometimes when ya let them taste what they spew they get a chance to feel what it's like to be hated on.

    good idea... nice

    Strictly speaking fashion here, forget what I think about her personally. I don't believe this outfit is "inaugural" stuff, but looking at it for a few minutes I have to say it's not a bad design. As I said, though, I don't think it's dressy enough for the occasion. But then I haven't been to a dress-up function in many years, so I'm really out of touch with fashion norms.

    One really bad, bad things, though: those gloves. they are hideous. Bad choice of style, bad choice of color, bad choice period.

    You shouldn't let your hatred rule your life. You're just going to make yourself sick(er).

    Girl,u know u can find a great outfit if u want .U can't stand having a democrat in office.That's sucks for u. romneys in the kitchen
    see,i can find an awful pic of the Romneys. mrs bush
    Here is an awful choice of color.Poop color. mrs bush
    What's w/ the pearls all the time?Think she was hiding her wrinkled neck.To much sun can turn a person into a prune.I mean,my grandma is almost eighty nine but does not look like a prune.Think Mrs. Grandma Bush should have gotten a little laser treatment or a bit of cosmetic sx.She can afford it.At least, a little botox like the rest of them.

    You chose to only look at the best of the Republican party.You only want to look at what you perseve is ugly in the Democratic party.I am telling u that I too can find the ugly photos of you're party.I'm not picking on the elderly.It is an observation which is a fact.Don't think Mrs Romney and Mrs Bush W don't Botox.If you don't think so you are nieve.Sorry,but your party is not immune to perfection and I pointed that out.If u don't like it to bad.

    Vast majority of America, for that matter the vast majority if the world consider Michelle Obama to be a beautiful, eloquent, fashion plate. All she has to do is wear a designer's fashions to make his carrier.

    You have let your hatred for the President and his policies warp your views and you spew your hatred at the First Lady.

    If you really don't even realize how much hate you spew, it is really sad.

    Well I'm glad that you are finally owning up to your hate mongering. Now if you can work toward a rational position where you have thoughtful disagreement rather than spewing irrational hate, you can start on a path to recovery.

    I wasn't hating on Romney--it really doesn't look like Obama. Plus Romney gets spray tan right?

    My party?! I'm not Democrat.

    You would not be attacking Michelle Obama if it weren't for your hatred of the President and his policies. Go back and read your vehement, venomous posts, then ask yourself if they are rational criticism or if they are hate-filled rants.
