While trying to find an online betting shop with odds on for Michelle Obama's Inaugural Ball dress, Fashionista recaps the past 50 years of FLOTUS Inaugural Ball fashion.

From Jackie Kennedy's collaboration with Bergdorf Goodman's Ethan Frankau in 1951 to Rosalynn Carter's store-bought blue chiffon gown by Mary Matise for Jimmae in 1977 and Hillary Rodham Clinton's purple gown by her hometown designer Sarah Phillips, first ladies have chosen fashion-forward designers for their night on the town.

So far, fashion handicappers point towards Prabal Garung.
