Michelle Obama Wore Glorious Wide-Leg Trousers to the Inauguration

I've already explained why Vice President Kamala Harris's striking purple outfit for Inauguration Day made such a statement, but she wasn't the only well-dressed woman of style and substance today. Former First Ladies Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton appeared to coordinate in varying shades of purple and maroon, with the former opting for Sergio Hudson and the latter wearing Ralph Lauren. 

Meanwhile, Lady Gaga made quite an entrance in a full-skirted custom Schiaparelli Haute Couture look with a dove insignia to sing the National Anthem. Also in attendance are Senator Elizabeth Warren, Harris's stepchildren, sister, and nieces, and members of Congress. Scroll down to see what everyone wore to Inauguration Day.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
