Donning a sleeveless Reed Krakoff creation, Kimberly McDonald geode-and-diamond drop earrings and her oh-so-chic bangs, Michelle Obama is picture perfect in the April issue of Vogue magazine.
The interview, conducted just ten days after President Obama‘s inauguration in January, gives readers yet another glimpse into the high-powered (yet surprisingly normal) lives of our First Family. Check out a few tidbits from mag’s sit-down with the First Lady, including her fashion choices and the process behind “upgrading” her husband, as well as the entire photo spread after the jump!
Michelle on making her family a priority, rather than being “social” in Washington…
“Our job is, first and foremost, to make sure our family is whole. You know, we have small kids; they’re growing every day. But I think we were both pretty straightforward when we said, ‘Our number-one priority is making sure that our family is whole.’ [...] The stresses and the pressures of this job are so real that when you get a minute, you want to give that extra energy to your fourteen- and eleven-year-old”
