America's First Lady, Michelle Obama, 49, aptly went with an American designer Thom Browne when she chose her ensemble for Inauguration Day's public festivities, which commenced with her husband, President Barack Obama's, speech on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol Building, followed by a parade, a luncheon and a seemingly endless schedule of meet-and-greets.

Everyone was wondering what Obama and her daughters, Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11, would opt to wear for the historic occasion, and the fashionable family did not disappoint onlookers. Obama took on the day clothed in a long, sleek, navy blue silk coat and dress that were inspired by the material of a mens' necktie and were designed specifically for the first lady.

The ensemble was stylishly accessorized with a high-waisted J.Crew belt, high-heeled black boots and the perfect accent — a pair of fuschia leather gloves that matched the coat/dress duo of her older daughter, Malia, which was also designed by J.Crew. Sasha was decked out in a periwinkle coat/dress pairing by Kate Spade.

It was reported that Browne didn't know that Obama would choose to wear his dress until he saw her step out in it, an experience he described to the New York Times as "overwhelming."

"It's one of those humbling experiences in life," Browne also told the Los Angeles Times. "With all the American designers she could have chosen from, the fact that she chose mine was overwhelming and one of those experiences that you can never really put into words other than just [to say] 'truly humbling' and I'm so proud that she chose it — and I'm also so proud that she looked so good in it."
