First Lady Michelle Obama turns 49 today. She's an accomplished woman who has achieved success in her academic and professional life. But most importantly, she adorns her body with fabrics.
Born in 1964, Michelle Obama graduated cum laude from Princeton with a major in sociology and a minor in African American studies. Here, the dress she's wearing is purple.
Obama then attended Harvard Law School, where she stood out as a strong proponent of ethnic diversity in the faculty. This dress has pretty flowers on it.
While at Harvard, Obama put her intellect and empathy to good use by working on housing cases for low-income tenants. Her dress in this picture only has one strap (!).
After graduating, she worked on marketing and intellectual property law for the Chicago firm Sidley Austin, and she still holds her license to practice law today. This dress makes her arms look soooo good.
Michelle Obama went on to hold various public-sector positions, including Assistant to the Mayor of Chicago. She sure looks happy in this dress.
She even joined the faculty of the University of Chicago, eventually serving as the Vice President for Community and External Affairs for the University of Chicago Hospitals. Did you know Michelle Obama wears dresses?
