Michelle Obama's Vogue Cover: Our First Priority Is to Make Sure Our Family Is Whole
Mobama's bangs got their Vogue cover! First Lady Michelle Obama graces the April cover of Vogue. For her second time gracing the preeminent fashion magazine, the 49-year-old shows off her now-trademark second-term hairdo as well as her long-admired, toned arms in a sleeveless blue dress featuring a a center maroon panel.
Although Mrs. Obama and her husband of 20 years, President Barack Obama, certainly have a lot on their plate, but FLOTUS tells Vogue that it all comes back to their little girls Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11. "Our job is, first and foremost, to make sure our family is whole. You know, we have small kids; they're growing every day," Obama explains.
"But I think we were both pretty straightforward when we said, 'Our No. 1 priority is making sure that our family is whole.'"
The First Lady points out in the interview that most of the couple's friends, socially speaking, are parents as well. "The stresses and the pressures of this job are so real that when you get a minute, you want to give that extra energy to your 14- and 11-year-old," Obama mused.
What has she learned from her man, who just happens to be the leader of the Free World? "Well, patience and calm I'm borrowing. Or trying to mirror. I've learned that from my husband, that sort of, you know, ability to not get too high or too low with changes and bumps in the road," she says of the President, 51. "To do more breathing in and just going with it. I'm learning that every day. And to the extent that I’ve made changes in my life, it's just sort of stepping back and seeing a change not as something to guard against but as a wonderful addition. . . that can make life fun and unexpected."
The April issue of Vogue hits stands March 26.
