What is there not to love about Mrs. Michelle Obama? A gutsy, smart, bold and determined woman equal to her husband (ahem, the former president), she is a true symbol of femininity and strength. She has shown girls that they can be equals if they first see themselves as equals. Michelle has undoubtedly become an idol to so many girls and women by instilling hope and the idea that self-determination enables you to rise above obstacles to achieve your dreams.
A quote from her final speech as first lady states, “Don’t be afraid. Be focused. Be determined. Be hopeful. Be empowered. Empower yourselves with a good education. Then get out there and use that education to build a country worthy of your boundless promise. Lead by example and never fear.”
Already an accomplished lawyer, loving mother and public service advocate before her husband was elected the 44th POTUS, it is no surprise Michelle was able to master the FLOTUS position, lead multiple initiatives and make us all shake our heads in admiration with her rousing speeches. I mean, she first met Barack when she was assigned as his mentor at a law firm - ‘nuff said. (drop the mic)
But even with all her fame and success, Michelle is a woman that people feel they can relate to. She can deliver a speech with fierce conviction, and then sing carpool karaoke with James Corden, hang in a blanket fort with Stephen Colbert, dance onstage with Ellen DeGeneres and publically tease her husband about the size of his ears - all while filling our hearts with warm fuzzies.
And, she loves fashion. Even better, we could wear some of the ensembles she is rockin’! Michelle became a notable trendsetter while being FLOTUS and we couldn’t help but point out the many times she rocked a necktie. See the gallery of photos below and shop our Michelle Obama inspired necktie called FLOTUS with the MOSTUS (inventory available within weeks!).
