Our new First Lady cemented her reputation as a sophisticated follower of fashion when she chose this sunny yellow ensemble from designer Isabel Toledo for her husband's swearing in ceremony (she ordered the dress and matching coat from Ikram, one of her favorite Chicago boutiques). On her feet? Jimmy Choos, natch. At Stylelist, we love Michelle's taste but, with no history making events on our social calendar, we can't really justify any splurges. So we asked Amber Rodriguez to show us how to steal her style.
