In the aftermath of Donald Trump’s victory, possibly one of the biggest political upsets in American history, Vogue blessed many leftist and pro-Obama enthusiasts with this amazing cover story of beloved First Lady Michelle Obama.  This time the direction for her cover was all glamour, a departure from Mrs. Obama’s previous Vogue covers that were more “buttoned up.”

The title for this issue was so needed as we can all recall how Michelle Obama had trouble defining her role Washington when she and President Obama first entered the White House.  The funny thing about those reports is that most black women could probably relate.  Eventually, she began to define things on her own terms, as many black women do in the end.

She was the subject of style and grace for this illustrated cover for the New Yorker.  A suitable departure from the nonsense the New Yorker first displayed of the first couple, depicting them as fist bumping terrorists the previous year

We are looking forward to seeing what her first post first lady cover story will be.  Or will Mrs. Obama take time away from the limelight?  Time will tell.
