Today's the day the world has been waiting for. Yes, of course we are talking about the inauguration, but the fashion world is biting our nails in eager anticipation of Michelle Obama's sartorial choices this monumental Tuesday. She just showed up at church in this yellow coat and dress ensemble, and we now know it's by designer Isabel Toledo (and Cathy Horyn reports it's made of fancy Swiss wool lace). We also hear there's a pashmina lining in the coat – whose color is officially lemongrass – to keep her warm while sitting outside with her J. Crew gloves. But we're still wondering what Michelle will choose for this evening's festivities.

By the way, she's also wearing Jimmy Choo Glacier Pumps – which must be insanely comfortable since she's on her feet all day – and J. Crew leather gloves. We found some similar options on eBay

To honor the occasion, we have come out with our Style Guide to Michelle Obama, which will help you and your wardrobe keep up with the iconically stylish First Lady. As we count down the minutes, here's a recap of SheFinds' favorite Obama moments in style history – which one was your favorite?

Want to score some Toledo of your own? We found some classics on eBay. Or mimic Michelle's Tuesday morning look with a budget-friendly yellow tweed coat and a pair of hunter green kitten heels.

On Sunday, Michelle appeared at the We Are One concert in Washington in a classic camel ensemble by Narciso Rodriguez.

For her first visit to the White House, she dressed in a fiery red Maria Pinto that showed she was not intimidated by her newly acquired post.

On election night, the soon-to-be First Lady caused quite the stir in another Rodriguez ensemble, dubbed the Black Widow dress by those not so keen on her decision.

Michelle donned J. Crew for her appearance on Leno where she proudly declared that she bought a lot of her "stuff" online.

Her purple Maria Pinto first put Mrs. Obama on the map as a true fashion icon.
