She's a bold, intelligent, self possessed woman. Woman of color.

I really like how they used Michelle's blue dress against a green background. The old saying is Blue and Green should never be seen, but that is not true at all if you choose the right blues and greens, it's beautiful.

not sure I really like her hair all that much (but then again, if her self-esteem needs my approval for a hairstyle, something is horribly wrong in the world), but very pretty. I wonder where she got those earrings? I think my mom would like those (they probably cost more than my car, though).

They look like dangling disks. I just want to say that Michelle isn't known for buying silly, expensive designer items, so those earring may well be within your price range and would be a lovely gift for your mother.

40. She just doesn't look like the First Lady that I remember

 

It must be the airbrushing, the make up or the bangs, I'm not sure what. Her nose seems too long, her eyes seem too wide apart and her arms look too perfect. She looks a bit plastic in the cover shot. I remember her with kind eyes and a warm smile, a genuine person, a person I could meet and like.

Not that she looks mean or anything but it just doesn't look like her. The photo of her and the president is a little better and the one in the gown is terrific.

60. I just wish she'd wear pants, as Hillary does.

Always wearing dresses sends the wrong message to young women...that this is the only acceptable way to dress in business/public. Women fought long and hard to be accepted wearing pants, and it saddens me that our First Lady isn't taking that torch and running with it. Dresses are all right, but wearing them constantly sends a message that pants aren't acceptable.

Aside from that, I love Michelle and her new hairstyle!

it is how you act and what you know and how you speak not whether you have a dress or a pants suit on.
