When you visit D.C. in the winter, the coat you wear is just as important as the clothes you sport underneath it. Remember how all eyes were on Michelle Obama's Thom Browne topper and Sasha and Malia's pretty purple coats during the chilly inauguration?
So, when Katy Perry and Jenna Elfman hit the nation's capital to schmooze with President Barack Obama, the two chose their outerwear very carefully—and both reached for Rodarte's colorful fall 2012 coat with a cozy shearling collar.
Perry stood out at Obama's inauguration in the black-and-orange striped coat, pairing it with a trendy black fedora and stylish sunnies. And in a classic Perry move, she accessorized with a quirky accessory: a tiny version of Aretha Franklin's 2009 hat.
Elfman went for a more classic look, matching a white Victoria Beckham zipper clutch and sleek Jimmy Choo pumps with the coat's luxe collar for a 1600 Penn photo shoot outside the White House, followed by a meet-and-greet with the president.
We think both looked perfectly poised for their political engagements in Rodarte's eye-catching coat, especially since they each styled the stunning striped piece to fit their personal styles.
But we want to know what you think. Which D.C. darling gets your vote for best dressed in the designer topper?
