US First Lady Michelle Obama scored a rare accolade for a political spouse by being named on celebrity magazine People’s annual list of the world’s 100 most beautiful people.

Obama,who has been hailed as a style icon by fashionistas around the world since her husband was elected President,was named in the list alongside A-listers such as Angelina Jolie,Halle Berry and Christina Aguilera.

“I had a father and a brother who thought I was beautiful,and they made me feel that way every single day,” Michelle Obama told ‘People’.

“I grew up with very strong male role models who thought I was smart and fast and funny,so I heard that a lot. I know that there are many young girls who don’t hear it. But I was fortunate.”
