Michelle Obama covers Vogue for the last time as 1st Lady

 


The outgoing American first lady covered the latest edition of Vogue where she talked about her duties as first lady and what life after the White House would be like for her. Excerpts......

On her role as First Lady: “Everything we do is by choice. I could have spent eight years doing anything, and at some level, it would have been fine. I could have focused on flowers. I could have focused on décor. I could have focused on entertainment. Because any First Lady, rightfully, gets to define her role. There’s no legislative authority; you’re not elected. And that’s a wonderful gift of freedom.”

On life after the White House: “I will take the same approach leaving as I did coming in. I won’t know until I’m there. I’ve never been the former First Lady of the United States before… but I will always be engaged in some way in public service and public life.”

On her fashion choices: “It all boils down to comfort level: If I’m going to make you comfortable, than I have to be comfortable first. So my first reaction isn’t ‘Who made this?’ But ‘Let’s try it on. What does it look like? Oooh, that’s cute. Oh, wow. I never thought of wearing something like this. let’s put a belt on it. I feel gooood in this.’ There are definitely designers that I love, people I love to work with. And who they are as people matters. Are they good people? Do they treat their staff well? Do they treat my staff well? Are they young? Can I give them a boost? But! When all of that is equal…is it cute?!”
