Michelle Obama is no doubt a stylish First Lady, she featured the 3rd time and final moment on Vogue cover as First Lady. She spoke on her style and choosing what she wears.
Michelle: “It all boils down to comfort level: If I’m going to make you comfortable, then I have to be comfortable first,” she said in the December issue of Vogue. “So my first reaction isn’t ‘Who made this?’ But ‘Let’s try it on. What does it look like?…There are definitely designers that I love, people I love to work with. And who they are as people matters. Are they good people? Do they treat their staff well? Do they treat my staff well? Are they young? Can I give them a boost? But! When all of that is equal . . . is it cute?!”
She added: “Everything we do is by choice,”speaking of her role. “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.”
She also spoke about her departure from White House with about three months until Donald Trump’s inauguration.
“You know, there are little . . . moments. Even today I was looking out at this view here…looking out on the South Lawn and the Washington Monument and it had just rained and the grass was really green and everything popped a little bit more. It’s soooo beautiful. And for that moment I thought, I’m going to miss waking up to this, having access to this anytime I want,” she told the magazine.
