Michelle Obama just celebrated her 53rd birthday this week and that reminded us of the two reasons for which we absolutely love the FLOTUS!
Firstly, for being a commanding First Lady, who has been in the spotlight not just as the spouse of the President, but also for launching programs aimed at children’s welfare, education, healthy eating and for getting young people lead more active lives.
Secondly, for giving us some serious style inspiration and for being a top contender for best dressed first ladies! And by the term ‘best dressed’ we are referring not just to her designer gowns and stand by classics, but her more relatable fashion moments in which she stepped out wearing a go-to label for fashion-conscious working women: J.Crew.
And because of that, we decided to take a look back at all the J.Crew Michelle Obama wore through her past eight years in the White House.
