What will first lady Laura Bush and her twin daughters wear to the inauguration?
Mrs. Bush has chosen a silver and blue V-neck evening gown of embroidered tulle, made by American designer Oscar de la Renta, to wear to the inaugural balls, topped by an ice blue satin coat.
To the ceremony on Capitol Hill in which President Bush takes the oath of office for a second term, Mrs. Bush will wear a winter white day suit and coat, like the evening ensemble by de la Renta. The coat is embroidered cashmere and the matching dress is boucle wool with embroidered trim.
Jenna Bush's inaugural ball gown is by Badgley Mischka. It is emerald silk crepe with metallic leather banding and jeweled insets. Her twin, Barbara, will wear a Badgley Mischka to the Texas State Society's Black Tie and Boots Ball the night before the Jan. 20 inauguration. That dress is aquamarine silk chiffon, with a plunging neckline and a very low drop in the back, jeweled spaghetti straps and a ruffled skirt.
