It's been a big week for coats. Like the rest of us, if you too were glued to your screen, taking in the fashion at the US Inauguration Day (which, let's face it, you were), the stunning outerwear is bound to have caught your attention. The attendees really did dress up to the nines and it was safely the coats that stole the show. Of course, not to forget that former First Lady Michelle Obama emerged as one of the best dressed at the ceremony, her plum-hued, power-packed attire sending the internet into a frenzy.
And now, we found out that her choice of designer and what she wore for the event had a little something in common with Priyanka Chopra. Intrigued? We don't blame you! Continue to scroll to find the details. `
To recap, for her Internet-breaking look at the Inauguration Day, Michelle Obama chose to keep it monochrome in a chic turtleneck, wide-legged pants, a belt to highlight the fit and a long coat layered on top. Styled by Meredith Koop, her outfit came from Sergio Hudson, a Los-Angeles based designer.
Launched in 2014, the designer's eponymous womenswear label is known for its statement pieces that work with colour and silhouette. In the past, the Black American fashion designer has dressed celebs like Miley Cyrus, Rihanna and closer home, Priyanka Chopra.
Speaking of the latter, the actress donned a Sergio Hudson outfit way back in 2017 and other than the designer himself, her look had a lot more in common with the former First Lady. Styled by celebrity expert Ami Patel, Priyanka Chopra had also decked up in a tone-on-tone look, using head-to-toe colour to her advantage when attending an event. A crossover blouse with a slightly plunging neckline was tucked into wide-legged trousers, all of it layered with a matching pink coat that the actress draped lightly across her shoulders.
Power-dressing like pros, monochrome leaning, similar outfits and of course, the very same designer. See the similarities between Michelle Obama and Priyanka Chopra's outfits yet?
