Class Act

I've got to hand it to you Mrs. Obama, on Tuesday you didn't disappoint. I'm in agreement with those who think you'll bring the White House a new and original sense of style, unmatched by the majority of previous first ladies. You are really something special, and I'm so excited for the qualities, ideas, and passions you'll share with us in the coming years.

Love the lemongrass brocade coat and everything that was going on with your outfit during the day. Your ball gown grew on me too throughout the evening and I appreciate that you chose less-well-known designers. Beyond your wardrobe choices on Tuesday (which were just the icing on the cake), I'm a huge fan of your accomplishments, the character you display, your outlook on life, and so much more about you. I think you'll be a wonderful role model for women all over the world. Truly, you're a class act.

Her clothes aren't things I would choose, but I love that she is confident in her own style. Also, definite agreement with her accomplishments, etc. She is one classy lady.

Whoop whoop! SO nice to have a woman in the white house who represents the modern woman! Career, family, class...Not to mention she's a looker! She's got it all and I'm so glad she's our first lady.

Seriously. Love her. What I think I really love, though, is that you get a sense that her and Barack are a team. That they are in this together.

She is going to be like Jaqueline Kennedy...whatever she wears is going straight to the top. Sweden Shop Note: Marimekko received a re-birth in the 60s because Jackie bought eight cotton dresses from them. Same idea.

I can't wait to see what the next four years hold for this family - beautiful and inspiring souls, each in their own right. I watched the President and First Lady share their first dance the other night with tears in my eyes. They both have such class, intelligence, compassion, tenderness, confidence..it's overwhelming to take in.

And by the by...it takes a class act to know one, and you surely are just that. ;)

I couldn't agree more. I also loved the colors worn by their daughters. I am excited of what she will bring to the white house- a real forward thinking/modern woman.

She is amazing in many, many ways. I can't wait to see what she's going to do (and wear) for the next eight years (I hope!)

Let's hear it for the Obama girls!!

I love her style, too, and can't wait to watch the three of them in the next four years (or more!).

Many people I work with don't like Obama and the Mrs. but I agree, she looked fab! Its nice to have a younger modern woman as first lady!

I could not agree with you more! I also think she and Barak make a good team. It is like we got a two for one special with this president. I am excited all around!
