Michelle Obama Switches From Pumps to Boots for Inauguration Festivities

Michelle Obama has made many powerful fashion statements during the past eight years, and the former first lady stepped out in style once again for her final day at the White House.

Obama wore a belted maroon print dress with black suede pumps to greet President Donald Trump and Melania Trump, the new first lady, at the White House on Inauguration Day. Obama added an elegant coat to the ensemble and changed into tall black boots before leaving the White House for the final time — and traveling to the U.S. Capitol for the inauguration ceremony.

There’s no question her favorite shoe brand has been Jimmy Choo, and Obama remained loyal to the British brand, wearing it for both of her own inaugural balls.
