A First Lady In Full

First Lady Michelle Obama has modernized First Lady-dom and become a cultural icon in the process — by daring to  wear a sartorial and culturally diverse cadre of designers who were previously known only or mostly to the fashion (and fashion watching) set, championing the cause of the kitchen garden and joining the conversation about exercise and healthy natural food, and raising along with her husband two self-confident, lovely and well adjusted girls (quite a feat when you’re doing it from the White House, as former first daughter Jenna Bush attested on Inaugural Day), and simply by being the first African-American woman to occupy the First Lady spot in the cultural pantheon. Is it any wonder she was live-streamed into The Academy Awards?
