Michelle Obama's Official Portrait

Michelle Obama Is a First Lady With a Portrait

The White House released First Lady Michelle Obama's official portrait today. The role of America's leading lady sure looks good on Michelle! So does the black sleeveless Michael Kors dress she's wearing.

Michelle's portrait unveiling is the latest headline maker for the first lady. Sunday, she walked the White House red carpet, as a cohost for the president's first state dinner. And Wednesday she and Barack welcomed Stevie Wonder to the White House to award him the Gershwin Prize for Popular Music.

Take a look at Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush's official portraits. Reading-advocate Laura has a book in hers, and Hillary's rocking the pantsuit! How do you like Michelle's compared to theirs?

I like Michelle's, but it does look like it was taken in a bit of a hurry, and there doesn't seem to bit much care for details. However, she still looks beautiful!<img src=http://thefamilybiz.org/ezboard/emoticons/storm.gif>

I liked all three portraits/pictures of the first ladies. I can't believe that is Michelle's picture however. It looks like they took it in 30 seconds before she had to run off to make a speech or something. She looks gorgeous of course but it just seems very hurried and poorly thought out. I think Laura Bush's portrait looks very thoughtful and planned. It shows off her love of books (although those bell sleeves were not particularly fashionable). Same with Clinton. I wish they had shown a bit more care with Michelle!

She looks like she is steadying herself with that hand, she is standing strange so one hip looks bigger than the other, she is positioned awkwardly....the black dress and white pearls are boring, and she looks demented. They could have done her more justice than this! As Tyra would say "she needs to smile with her eyes"

Agreed that all three look great! But yeah, I think my school yearbook photo was better composed.

@Granpa, you are right and Bill has to worship the grounds that Hilary walks on. To add to my previous comment, I admire Hilary for forgiving Bill,and moving on by his side...

Michelle looks beautiful as usual, but the picture itself is not very well laid out or planned.

Unfortunately, Bill does not have that same sense of honor, or loyalty.

personally I heart all 3, and I just adore the look in Mrs.O's eyes and her smile...elegance should be her middle name.Something about Michelle reminds me about what they say about great men...behind every great man there is a woman and I admire Mrs.Clinton for sticking to her Bill during tough times ( Monica Luwinski scandal )...now that's an example of the oath we take when we marry...and I admire her strength for getting into politics. Ah gr8 women of our times...

It's a bit fuzzy, but is that a portrait of TJ (the big slaveowner) in the background of Michelle's picture?

Democrat or Republican, there is no denying that Mrs. Obama is a beautiful, strong, and elegant woman.

I am the first to admit all my taste is in my mouth, but of the three picture presented she probaly come off the best with the bearing of a First Lady

I want to know why it isn't painted like the others. And why is there a First Lady portrait? (just curious) Michelle does look very nice though.

This story's details are a little shakey. This is the official photo portrait that everyone has while in office. The painted portraits are not made until after they leave office. Also sometimes there is an official portrait for the National Gallery and the White House. She will have a painted portrait later.
