Michelle Obama has landed another cover: TIME Magazine.

The issue, which tries to define the “Meaning of Michelle,” features a striking photograph of the First Lady’s face. While we hated how uncomfortable she looked on the cover of Vogue in March, we’re really wondering how much airbrushing this photograph’s been under?

“I’m pretty much who I’ve been for a long time. So that … I just think that people have the opportunity to see all of who Michelle Obama is over a longer period of time,” she says. “And hopefully they like what they see. And I think they actually … to the extent that they saw all of me … liked what they saw then.”

Satirical magazine The New Yorker has given First Lady Michelle Obama sleeves for their Style Issue.

The illustration by Floc’h, titled “Michelle O.”, depicts the First Lady on a runaway in a colorful array of full-length sleeved frocks.

New York Times columnist David Brooks, who criticized Obama’s much-debated sleeveless frocks to fellow columnist Maureen Dowd on Sunday, will certainly be elated to see that Obama’s “thunder and and lightning” have been “put away” to his liking.

Queen of all media Oprah Winfrey has stepped aside and giving half her cover of O magazine to First Lady Michelle Obama.

In the April issue of O, Oprah interviews the first lady from the White House.

“Say what you will about books—people do judge a magazine by its cover, which is why it’s important to me to keep the cover of this one looking fresh,” says Oprah. “And right now nothing—and I mean nothing—is fresher than the family that moved into the White House in January, sparking a national spirit of renewal the likes of which I’ve never seen.”

First LOOK: Fashion Designers Call Michelle Obama ‘Our Shining Hope’ in New Style Book

First Lady Michelle Obama has caused an uproar with her fashion sense–even her choice of sleeveless dresses ruled headlines last week.

And now the first lady’s trademark, contemporary, all-American style is being spun into a book–like a love letter to the style maven from the fashionistas who have (and hope!) to dress her.

“Our shining hope for the future!” says designer Isaac Mizrahi in the Michelle Obama style guide (due out May 5). But Glamour has a few pages from Michelle Style: Celebrating the First Lady of Fashion, which features sketches, interviews and style tips from fashion heavy-hitters like Carolina Herrera, Catherine Malandrino, Tommy Hilfiger, Behnaz Sarafpour, Isabel Toledo, and Jason Wu.

“Michelle Obama is a true independent,” explains Nicole Miller. “She isn’t locked into wearing couture or super expensive clothes.

Color on the Cover: First Lady Michelle Obama on Malia & Sasha’s White House Chores

First Lady Michelle Obama has a new look, a new home and some new rules–which she shares with People magazine.

Malia and Sasha may be the world’s most famous kids, but the First Lady doesn’t let them get away from their chores: making their own beds, cleaning their rooms and clearing their dishes.

“People want to make your life easy, and when you have small kids – I’ve explained this to the staff – they don’t need their lives to be easy,” Obama says. “They’re kids.”
