This is Michelle Obama’s second cover on Vogue Magazine and she looked stunning as usual, hard to believe that she is 49 years old. She spoke about raising teenagers and how President Obama is as a father.
On their job as parents:
“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 No. 1 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 14- and 11-year-old.”
On their daughters growing up:
President Obama joked in the Vogue interview that he and the first lady might start hitting the town, now that their daughters are older and have less time for them.
“As I joked at a press conference, now that they want less time with us, who knows? Maybe you’ll see us out in the clubs,” Obama said.
Michelle On Obama as a father:
“He’s doing it while still dealing with Syria and health care. He’s as up on every friend, every party, every relationship,” the first lady said. “And if you’re out to dinner every night, you miss those moments where you can check-in and just figure them out when they’re ready to share with you.”
Michelle on women’s fashion:
“I always say that women should wear whatever makes them feel good about themselves. That’s what I always try to do. I also believe that if you’re comfortable in your clothes it’s easy to connect with people and make them feel comfortable as well. In every interaction that I have with people, I always want to show them my most authentic self.”How living in The White House has affected their style choices:
“There is one thing that changed,” said The President”What’s that?” asked Michelle Obama.
“Which is, I used to only have, like, two suits,” he said.”Thank god,” the First Lady said. “Let me tell you: This is the man who still boasts about, ‘This khaki pair of pants I’ve had since I was 20.’ And I’m like, ‘You don’t want to brag about that.'”The President added: ‘Michelle’s like Beyoncé in that song, “Let me upgrade ya!” She upgraded me.”
And the girls have their say too:“The girls and I are always rooting when he wears, like, a stripe. They’re like, ‘Dad! Oh, you look so handsome. Oh, stripes! You go!’” said Michelle Obama.
