As bits of information had begun to surface this week - Mrs. O's official hair stylist for the Inauguration, the family's official White House decorator - we had hoped that it was a sign of things to come. Specifically, that an early announcement would be made with details on what and who Mrs. O will be wearing throughout next week's Inaugural festivities. (In the past, first ladies have sometimes announced such details in advance.)
But according to Stephanie Green of The Washington Times, the waiting game continues. She reported yesterday that "an aide to Mrs. Obama who asked not to be identified confirmed that 'an announcement may not be made until Tuesday.'" There's nothing like mounting suspense. Wait on, we must. Update: To help bide time, the Today Show ran another First Lady fashion segment this morning, touching on Inaugural fashion of first ladies past, while adding another round of speculation on what Mrs. O might wear next week. Cindi Leive, Editor-in-Chief of Glamour, weighed in with thoughtful and well-researched commentary.
