Cover Girl | More Michelle Obama

5 08 2008

Whether she’s giving her husband a victorious fist-pump, being a mother to her two girls or being named one of the most stylish women in the world, Michelle Obama‘s biggest and most important role is being the “rock” in her husband’s life.

The potential first lady graces the cover of the September issue of Ebony Magazine. In the issue, Michelle discusses family life, some of the friendships that keep her grounded and the family’s vision for moving America forward.

Drawing comparisons to former first lady, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis, Michelle is very frank when discussing her style. “I do think what you wear is a reflection of who you are. I love to look glamorous when there’s a wonderful, purposeful event that is appropriate. But when I’m in Iowa campaigning with the girls, I am in Gap shorts and a T- shirt.”

While maintaining such a hectic schedule, both Michelle and her husband make sure to let their girls know that they still come first. “My first job in all honesty is going to continue to be mom-in-chief,” she says, “making sure that in this transition, which will be even more of a transition for the girls…that they are settled and that they know they will continue to be the center of our universe.”

But it is the subject of her husband, the presumptive Democratic nominee that makes Michelle beam. “Barack and I—as partners, as friends and as lovers—we accessorize each other in many ways,” she said. “The best thing I love having on me is Barack on my arm and vice versa, whether it’s having him standing there smiling at me, or watching him mesmerize a crowd or talk to some seniors in a senior center.”

The epitome of grace and style, Michelle Obama continues to make us proud!

The issue will be on newsstands on August 12.
