(CBSLA.com) — Whether it be a designer dress or an inexpensive accessory, whatever the First Lady wears has a big impact on who makes it.

The J Crew heels and jeweled belt Michelle Obama wore to the 2013 Inauguration Day ceremony were such a hit that they’ve already sold out online. She paired those items with a navy Thom Browne coat. The choice had fashionistas abuzz and many women coveting the ensemble.

The First Lady chose to wear another stunning Jason Wu creation, a crimson chiffon and velvet gown, to this year’s Inaugural balls.

Her outfits were consistent with her tendency to pair big name labels with more affordable products.
