Two million watch Obama take the oath

Barack Obama made history this afternoon as he was sworn in as America’s first black president.
Over a million watching people crammed into the streets of Washington - with over a billion watching on television around the world - as the 47-year-old junior senator from Chicago became the most powerful man in the world.

The First Lady’s first dress Michelle Obama

The eyes of the world were on Barack Obama as he was sworn in as President of the United States today, but while they may have been listening with rapt attention to his inaugural speech, wife Michelle also found herself in the spotlight.
As future First Lady taking her place on the world stage next to her husband, Michelle was aware that some of the focus would fall on her - and her fashion choice.
And now we can report that the woman who looks as effortlessly stylish in a chain store dress as she does in a catwalk creation has chosen a pale gold dress by Cuban-American designer Isabel Toledo for the first leg of inauguration day. Source
