True, Monday's Presidential Inauguration is a major historical event, but it is also a major fashion event—which means the entire fashion industry is placing bets right now on who Michelle Obama will wear for the big day. Adding fuel to that fire, WWD claims to have a list the designers in the running based on sample requests from East Wing staffers. Names include tried-and-true FLOTUS favorites like Prabal Gurung, Narciso Rodriguez, Tracy Reese, and Jason Wu, who's white one-shoulder gown MObama wore last time around. There are also some surprises, including Bibhu Mohapatra, Laura Smalls, and Zero + Maria Cornejo. Not sure who to put your money on? Give our magic eight ball above a shake.
