Holy Toledo!Michelle is wearing Isabel Toledo....
Obama's choice of a warm golden-yellow coat and dress ensemble that appeared to be brocade with a bejeweled collar is significant on at least two counts. First, the color. Since the Elizabethan Era, shades of yellow have symbolized renewal and hope, a platform on which Obama based his campaign. Also, President-elect Obama has been vocal about his desire to improve relations with Cuba, and some wonder if Michelle Obama's choice of Narciso Rodriguez for the "We Are One," concert -- another Cuban-born designer, and now Toledo, also of Cuban descent -- has meaning.
