10 Moments That Solidified Michelle Obama as the Best First Lady Ever

FLOTUS is the best we've ever had!

  1. 2016 Democratic National Convention Speech

    Michelle Obama shows us that she is a role model not only for the young ladies and women of America, but also for her beautiful daughters. She teaches them "when 'they' go low, we go high" and embraces taking the high road over stooping to the level of others. 

    We can all do better with a role model like Michelle Obama.

  2. #GimmeFive Fitness Challenge

    Michelle Obama encourages celebrities and non-celebrities to join the challenge to showcase five ways that they're staying healthy. Celebrities such as Beyoncé, Nick Jonas and Ellen DeGeneres  have supported the Let's Move campaign.

  3. Imitation Is the Best Form of Flattery

    How can we forget the time Melania Trump delivered a speech jarringly similar to a speech Michelle Obama delivered in 2008? We're all for taking notes from the current first lady... but don't get crazy!

  4. Carpool Karaoke

    What's cooler than carpool karaoke? Carpool karaoke with Missy Elliott! Michelle Obama took a ride around D.C. with Missy Elliott rapping "This Is for My Girls."


  5. Beyoncé Writes You Letters

    Honestly, what's better than Beyoncé telling the first lady that she looks up to her?


  6. 'Southside With You'

    Her #BlackLove story with husband and President Barack Obama is so beautiful that it deserved its own movie. See the trailer for Southside With You starring Parker Sawyers as the future President Obama and Tika Sumpter playing lawyer Michelle Robinson, who is now our FLOTUS. The movie takes us on a journey of the couple's first date in the summer of 1989.

  7. She's Hip To the Current Slang

    Being super health conscious, it's no surprise Michelle Obama put her own health-inspired twist on things while answering the question, "How many calories does she burn when she turns up?"


  8. Black Girl Magic At Its Finest

    Michelle Obama gave a riveting speech to introduce the M.A.D. Girls (young Black girls making a difference in their community) at Black Girls Rock presented by BET. 

    Her attending the show to present to these young ladies is a true testament to how much she is invested in supporting young women of color.

  9. She Slays, All Day

    Michelle Obama pulled out all the stops at the White House State Dinner, in an exquisite custom rose-gold Atelier Versace fitted gown with drapery. But honestly, on any occasion you catch FLOTUS, she looks absolutely ravishing.

  10. Festival Vibes

    FLOTUS was a keynote panel speaker at the SXSW festival this year to discuss her Let Girls Learn initiative, which aims to break barriers for the 62 million girls around the world who are not in school today. 

    With all the knowledge she's imparted to us, we almost wondered if she would save our country and run for president, but, alas, our dreams were dashed once she announced that was not in her plans. Regardless, the panel was very memorable and worthwhile. We still wish Michelle Obama would run for president. It's not too late!
