What will the new first lady wear?

What will Michelle Obama wear to the inaugural ball? The frequency with which I'm being asked this question has increased the closer we get closer to Jan. 20.

The answer? I have no idea.

And I have a feeling we're all going to find out at the same time: when we see her in it at the event.

What I do know is that what ever she decides on, it will be dissected and critiqued to death by the armchair fashionistas (and political pundits) around the world.

And, given the visceral reaction to her election night dress, I don't fault her for keeping the details secret.

What do you think she should wear?
