The mum-of-two curled her hair so that it sat loosely on her shoulders and the audience caught a glimpse of her earrings.

A matte complexion, a smokey eye and natural coloured glossy lips completed the first lady’s beauty look for the Commander-In-Chief’s Inaugural Ball.

Michelle also looked stunning at the Inauguration Ceremony of Barack Obama in Washington DC earlier in the day.

The First Lady wrapped up warm in a custom-made Thome Browne navy coat, which she accessorised with an embellished belt, purple gloves and grey kitten heels.

Fashion critics were surprised to see Michelle donning Jason Wu after she wore Michael Kors for many public appearances.

Most recently, Barack's wife donned a black sequinned dress for Barack's inauguration reception - proving that sequins aren't just for Christmas.
