PhotOH! Michelle Obama's beautiful new portrait


Until now, this has always been my favorite photo of the First Lady:

But the new official White House portrait of Michelle and her "mid-life crisis" bangs is such a winner that we may have a tie:

The photo was taken in the Green Room of the White House just over a week ago. At left is her official portrait taken during her husband's first term in 2009.

Michelle Obama's outer beauty, however, is not the only attractive thing about her. That goes hand in hand with what's inside, how she thinks, how she expresses herself, what she does for others, her intelligence, her integrity, and her warmth. I haven't been this enthusiastic about a First Lady since... well, I can't remember when. It's nice to have this much pride in someone who so clearly cares about so many causes and so many people.

And don't get me started on Sasha and Malia:

    She is so beautiful.
    I tend to like the pic with the full bangs...only because she has such an amazing smile.
    Love how the girls are so close...and just being girls.

    Why do I get misty eyed at that pic of the girls? Oy.

  • She looks good in all of them. That %^&*$#!!!!
