Michelle Obama showed off her new bangs and a royal blue dress by American designer Reed Krakoff at Sunday’s swearing-in ceremony.

The first lady and daughter Malia matched President Barack Obama’s blue suit, while younger daughter Sasha wore a lacy pink dress with a wide belt in a style her mother helped popularize.

It’s not the first time Mrs. Obama chose a design by Krakoff, who in recent years started his own label after designing for Coach.

Her hairdo, however, is a change — and it has been the subject of online chatter since its debut on Thursday in a photo taken at the White House.
