In the final days of the First Family, the Obamas in the White House, Michelle Obama gave an interview at Vogue with Jonathan Van Meter and graces the cover of the December 2016 issue. Mrs Obama looks stunning in images by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. Mrs Obama has had incredible style as our First Lady, while taking the tasks of the role very seriously, working to internationally improve education for girls and women, domestically raise awareness of good nutrition. We’ll miss her.
“But on the flip side . . . it’s time. I think our democracy has it exactly right: two terms, eight years. It’s enough. Because it’s important to have one foot in reality when you have access to this kind of power. The nature of living in the White House is isolating. And I think Barack and I—because we’re kind of stubborn—we’ve maintained some normalcy, mostly because of the age of our kids. I go out to dinner with my girlfriends; I go to Sasha’s games; Barack has coached a little basketball with Sasha’s team.” – Michelle Obama
“Kids are watching us,” she says. “I experience it every single day. They hang on my every word, what I wear, what I say. They are writing papers about us.” – Michelle Obama
