Pregnancy rumours

In an interview for the O: The Oprah Magazine, Michelle has set the record straight and confirmed she is not pregnant and that she is not planning on it.

Food

Michelle loves Burger and says shes in the best shape ever, but admits she works really hard to stay in shape.

Dressing, Clothing & Hair Style

Commenting on Michelle’s dressing, Ann Coulter slamed Michelle’s clothing style a freakish Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis imitator. Ann said the flipped-under hair, the sleeveless A-line dresses, the short strands of fake pearls - would have been laughable if done by anyone other than a media-designated saint. Fashion experts however say Michelle’s classic fashion sense would be much sought after this year. Her inaugural gown designer Jason Wu said that he didnt expect selection for his design for the historic occasion.Barely two days after the inauguration, copycats are already at work to make their own versions of her inauguration day dress.

Michelle’s Chicago-based makeup artist Grimes-Myles admires her beauty as the ‘beautiful woman with gorgeous skin’ and explained Michelle’s look as ‘not an avant-garde look’ and is not a ‘fashionista or Vogue-spread type of thing’.

In February 09 she appeared at the Department of Transportation with new hair-do - a pulled back look which she used in very few occasions before.

Obama appeared in $10 T-shirt to lunch with ex First Lady Nancy Reagan.

In June 09, Michelle pledges never to wear fur, a day after French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy told PETA that she no longer wears real fur.

Fashion designer Maria Pinto, who came into the limelight after Michelle wore her dresses, has come out about why she had to close down her West Loop boutique.

Victoria Beckham says she would love to dress like Michelle.

In May 2010, her evening gown at the State dinner in White House has sparked off a controversy over the description of the dresss colour.

As First Lady

Michelle began her advocacy as the First Lady in March 09 when she met the families of the military sholders. She is seen emotional and said she is ‘distressed by the plight of many military families who are struggling to keep their heads above the poverty line’.

In September 09, it is revealed that Michelle prevented Hillary Clinton from becoming her husbands vice-presidential nominee and favored Joe Biden.

In June 2010, she joined parents at Camp Pendleton to discuss healthcare services for military children with disabilities.

Michelle may look like one set to usher an era of change but she is as traditional as her predecessors, says an American academic.

Campaign against childhood obesity

In January 2010, she kicked off an official drive against childhood obesity when she opened up about a warning from the First Family’s doctor that her own daughters were gaining extra pounds. In February 2010, she got all set to voice her concerns about childhood obesity with an appearance on Mike Huckabees Fox News program. In May 2010, she succeeded in getting US food manufacturers to cut 1.5 trillion calories from their products for her anti-obesity campaign.

On 27 October 2012, the flight of the first lady Michelle Obama was delayed in Nevada due to mechanical problems. The aircraft was held up for three hours but departed at about 9 p.m. PDT. The first lady was in Las Vegas campaigning for US President Barack Obama for the 2012 Presidential Election.

High school graduation speech

Michelle Obama is scheduled to speak at a high school graduation at Topeka, Kansas on 17 May 2014. Her plans to speak at the graduation ceremony was hit with criticism from some of the families in the area as they fear that her presence could mean limited seating and taking away the attention from the graduates themselves. Topeka Public Schools responded to the criticism promising at least six tickets to family members of the graduates. The ceremony will be held for 800 graduates at a local expo center than has a capacity of 10,000.
