It's been a busy week for First Lady Michelle Obama, and we know she'll have a weekend full of continued preparations for the upcoming inauguration and Inaugural Ball. We've been chomping at the bit to see what she'll wear, and we know we're not the only ones!

WWD explains that several designers were asked to sketch potential dress ideas for Michelle to wear on Monday, and some even sketched dresses for Malia and Sasha! We were able to dig up some sketches from back in 2008 as well, where designers such as Carolina Herrera and Peter Som dreamed about what the First Lady would wear to the ball. It's hard to forget Michelle's first inaugural dress, designed by Jason Wu which propelled the young designer to stardom.

Click through the gallery above to see sketch ideas for this year's Inaugural Ball, and also those ideas from 2008! What do you think Michelle should wear?
