Michelle Obama, 52, has had probably her most fashionable moment and it appears to be on the cover of the ‘New York Times Style’ magazine. The United States First Lady was in a black and white portrait which features Michelle’s skin looking flawless. She also just received one of seven covers for the New York Times Style ‘Our Greats’ issue.
“To the First Lady, With Love” features a series of beautiful black and white and color photos of Mrs. Obama accompanied by four love letters crafted by some of her biggest supporters. Written by African novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, executive editor of Random House Jon Meacham, feminist icon Gloria Steinem, and actress Rashida Jones, the letters “pay testament to Obama’s historic tenure as First Lady.
Chimamanda Adichie’s letter touches on the Michelle’s sense of style and how her fashion embodies a sense of authenticity and “full female selfhood.”
“She had become an American style icon. Her dresses and workouts. Her carriage and curves. Toned arms and long slender fingers. Even her favored kitten heels, for women who cannot fathom wearing shoes in the halfway house between flats and high heels, have earned a certain respect because of her. No public figure better embodies that mantra of full female selfhood: Wear what you like,” Adichie wrote.
