Being a FLOTUS is not an easy job. It requires strength of character to boost the morale of a country and start initiatives for the welfare of all. It also requires impeccable styling on the first lady’s part for all the public appearances she has to make in the next 4 years. While we are talking about style quotients, it would be sartorial treason to not mention Michelle Obama. She is indeed the fiercest First Lady, not just in her demeanour but her fashion sense as well. Obama made sleeveless and flared dresses really famous – also, a few gorgeous form-fitting numbers. Remember the custom rose gold Atelier Versace chainmail gown she wore to her final White House State Dinner? The lady held her ground for eight long years.
Her farewell has evoked a myriad of emotions but looks like she isn’t going anywhere! Looking ethereal in a white Carolina Herrera gown, Michelle is the epitome of beauty, elegance and grace on the cover of Vogue. Aptly named America’s ‘Mother-in-Chief,’ the feature follows her in the months leading up to Election Day.
Michelle says, “I could have spent eight years doing anything, and at some level, it would have been fine. I could have focused on flowers. I could have focused on decor. I could have focused on entertainment. Because any first lady, rightfully, gets to define her role. There’s no legislative authority; you’re not elected. And that’s a wonderful gift of freedom.”
The commendable lady used her time well, advocating for education, promoting healthy lifestyles and becoming a darling of the fashion industry and we couldn’t be any happier. Even Barack Obama is smitten. He summed up her personality as, “Who you see is who she is. The brilliant, funny, generous woman who, for whatever reason, agreed to marry me. I think people gravitate to her because they see themselves in her—a dedicated mom, a good friend, and someone who’s not afraid to poke a little fun at herself from time to time.”
