Michelle Obama – are you reading this? Green your gown for Inauguration!

It is with much anticipation that we are waiting to usher in this era of change with President-elect Obama’s inauguration on Tuesday, January 20. All eyes will be on the Obama family (new puppy included) as they begin their reign in Washington, D.C. and beyond. Some of us are hoping for a bountiful organic garden [2] on the White House lawn, thanks to The WhoFarm.org [3], or a newly-created green collar job. Michelle Obama [4], First Lady to-be, is already under close scrutiny in terms of how she will spend her days at the White House and balance her poised lawyer self with diplomatic demands. Global fashionistas have been speculating about what Michelle Obama will be wearing to the inaugural festivities, and given her maverick attitude, we, too, are excited to see if she opts for some eco-chic sparkle for the historic day. Below we’ve picked out some stunning eco outfits for Michelle – read on and let us know which you think would look best on her!

We have no doubt that Michelle Obama will be an amazing asset to the day-to-day White House team and a stylish trendsetter to boot. The nation’s new fashion icon has been known to support up-and-coming designers like CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund [5] participants Thakoon [6] and Jason Wu [7]. We thought it would also be pretty fabulous if she started stocking her carefully-curated wardrobe with some eco-chic pieces that would look totally stunning on her.

Sustainable style [8] will continue to be all about eco-friendly choices and informed use of the pocket-book as we move forward collectively. Given the new First Lady’s high-profile role and a watchful international audience, eco-fashion would be a great style choice for her not only for Tuesday’s historic inauguration day, but as a bold new look for a woman who exemplifies change and solution-focused thinking for the challenges that lie ahead.

So what eco-friendly fashion ensemble would you most like to see Michelle Obama wear on Inauguration Day?

Vote below and maybe together we can encourage Michelle to go glamorously green!
