's fashion parade for Monday's inaugural festivities was led by Michelle Obama in a navy-silk, checkered-patterned coat and dress by Thom Browne.

The rest of her outfit included a J. Crew belt, a Cathy Waterman necklace and a cardigan by Reed Krakoff, whose ensemble she also wore to yesterday's intimate, indoor swearing-in ceremony.

President Barack Obama wore a blue tie with his white shirt, dark suit and overcoat. Malia Obama had on a plum-colored J. Crew coat with the hemline of an electric-blue dress peeking out, and Sasha had on a Kate Spade coat and dress in a similar purple shade.

Mrs. Obama has worn Browne's designs for other occasions, including a gray dress with black lace overlay to one of the presidential debates last fall.
