Happy birthday to my love, my partner, and my best friend. Every moment with you is a blessing. Love you, Miche. pic.twitter.com/BrtH0vwKk4— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) January 17, 2021
Happy birthday Michelle Obama! The former first lady turns 57 years old today.
Throughout her time in the public eye, the Chicago native created her own legacy that includes numerous campaigns like Let’s Move!, encouraging children to embrace a healthier lifestyle, and the Let Girls Learn initiative, which is dedicated to increasing access to education for girls. Beyond her endless charitable actions and positive influences, the “Becoming” star also turned into a style icon across her eight years in the capital.
As her birthday and inauguration day both approach this week, you can’t forget about her memorable looks from both of Barack Obama’s inaugurations in 2009 and again in 2013.
For her husband’s first swearing-in, Michelle layered an Isabel Toledo dress and coat with a Nina Ricci cardigan, and J.Crew leather gloves, topped off with Jimmy Choo heels. In 2013 for President Obama’s second term, the then-first lady stunned in a Thome Brown jacket dress with Reed Krakoff leather suede boots.
Throughout the years that followed President Obama’s first inauguration ceremony, Michelle continued to make headlines for her classic yet bold style — think her bright yellow Balenciaga knot-dress paired to the brand’s glimmering boots from her 2018 interview with Sarah Jessica Parker!
