Michelle Obama’s inauguration look was such a show stopper that people are still talking about it. The former First Lady stunned when she arrived at the ceremony with former President Barack Obama last Wednesday wearing a gorgeous Sergio Hudson look.

As they walked in holding hands, Twitter went wild over with the Becoming author’s hair styled in sleek voluminous curls and her entire ensemble - the deep plum coat she wore over a turtleneck tucked into flared trousers in a berry hue that were cinched with a matching purple and gold statement belt.

Michelle's stylist, Meredith Koop, completed the look with Stuart Weitzman suede boots, a black Christy Rilling Atelier face mask, and black leather gloves.

We loved it too - and found a lookalike for her coat for a fraction of the price on Amazon. The wine-colored trench coat ranges in price from about $60 - $66 depending on coat size.

Michelle’s look wasn't just the epitome of girl boss glam, it also had a special meaning behind it. She, along with Vice President Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton, wore purple to the inauguration. The color is one of the official colors of the suffragist movement (purple, white, and green are the colors of the flag).

For the suffragettes, purple represented "the color of loyalty, constancy to purpose, unswerving steadfastness to a cause," according to the National Park Service. It also stood for “royalty and the royal blood that flows in the veins of every suffragette, the instinct of freedom and dignity."


Wearing purple is also used to indicate bipartisanship for Inauguration Day, considering that it’s a mix of Democrat blue and Republican red.
