  • A very funkadelic Obama supporter and other engaging Instagrams of the day. (Daily Beast)
  • What did John Boehner say that made Michelle Obama give the eye roll seen around the world? Alas, we shall likely never know. (Yahoo)
  • What a couple of cute kids. (HuffPo)
  • A quick Q&A with designer Thom Browne  in which he discusses the coat-and-dress ensemble he designed for Michelle Obama, and the exact moment on inauguration day that he found out she was actually wearing it.  Can you even imagine? (The Cut)
  • And here—in a rundown of everything FLOTUS wore yesterday and (sort of) what it meant—is Jason Wu on being just as shocked as anyone that she went with him yet again for her (stunning, I thought) inaugural ballgown. (WWD)
  • Check out all the lady Secret Service agents. (Daily Mail)
  • What the fancy folk wore. (The Cut)
  • And here’s just about everyone who busted out a tune, from Sweet Baby James to Beyonce. (Billboard)
  • An inaugural poem is a tricky thing, but Richard Blanco’s “One Today” worked nicely, no? Here’s its entire text, along with a brief look into what made it resonate so well as public poetry. (EW)
  • On a historical note: Abraham Lincoln’s inaugural ball turns out to have been something of a free-for-all. This cultural history of the menu alone is fascinating. (Smithsonian)
  • And finally: This far-ranging liveblog of the day made for rather entertaining reading at the end of it. (Atlantic Wire)

    I liked the red dress a lot too.

    I loved all of the FLOTUS’s choices, although I would have liked to have seen the dress under Thom Browne’s coat (maybe there’s a photo somewhere online). I’m not digging the bangs as much. It looks fine, but her previous style of long side-swept bangs was more elegant. But I know what it’s like to want something new.

    The poem was too long and overdramatic at points. I miss rhyme and structure in poetry, said this one-time English major.

    Beyonce was way overdressed compared with everyone else – we get you’re rich!
