With her time as our First Lady quickly coming to an end, Michelle Obama’s third Vogue cover and accompanying story are not something you want to miss.
For the cover of the December issue, Michelle donned a sleeveless, white Carolina Herrera gown that perfectly complements her natural makeup and flowing hair. And inside, she models two Atelier Versace ensembles to remind us that her fashion sense is just as stunning as the work and inspiration she’s been dishing out for the past eight years in the White House, including her two education initiatives – Reach Higher and Let Girls Learn.
Michelle admitted that she could have “spent eight years doing anything, and at some level, it would have been fine.” She continued with saying, “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.”
Even when she leaves the White House for a new humble abode, the First Lady said she’ll always be engaged in public service and public life. And we can only assume she’ll still be making jaws drop with her fashion statements too.
