inauguration ball gowns

Caroline Harrison and Pat Nixon's Inaugural Ball dresses

Jacqueline Kennedy and Maime Eisenhower's dresses

Some say that the dress the First Lady chooses for the Inaugural Ball sets the tone for her term. I don't know about that, but I certainly love to look at the different gowns chosen by the First Ladies throughout history. The Smithsonian has an exhibit of gowns worn by the First Ladies to the Inaugural Balls. You can see more Inaugural gowns here, here or here. Enjoy!
