GIMME FIVE: Tyra Banks’ Big Political Guests (Who Says Jay Leno Gets All the Scoop!)

tyra-banks-michelle-obama-photo Sure, Jay Leno became the first Late Night host to get a sitting president to visit his show last night, but Tyra Banks is the first Day Time host to get campaigning candidates to do some pretty idiotic things on The Tyra Show. So in tribute to Tyra's political side, Blindie pays homage to Miss Banks' Top 5 political guests: tyra-barack-obama-tyra-show 1. Sen. Barack Obama: In October 2007, the presidential hopeful was asked by Tyra to gaze into her crystal ball and tell her what he sees. "I see the White House," he replied, before revealing that his girls Malia & Sasha don't approve of the Hilton sisters! tyra-hillary-clinton-tyra-show-tissue 2. Sen. Hillary Clinton: In January 2008, Tyra asked the New York senator to answer questions printed on tissues (in reference to her crying on the campaign trail). One question was about Bill's affair with Monica. “I never doubted Bill’s love for me ever," she told Tyra, "and I never doubted my faith and my commitment to our daughter and our extended family.” tyra-john-edwards-wendys 3. John Edwards: In January 2008, the now-philanderous Edwards explained to Tyra how he and his wife Elizabeth eat at Wendy's every year on their anniversary--and Tyra made sure he shared Wendy’s with her on her show. tyra-mike-huckabee-tyra-show-guitar 4. Mike Huckabee: In February 2008, the former Arkansas governor gave Tyra bass guitar lessons. "I'm so pumped about being here." But of course Tyra had to make it about her: "I took guitar before ... well for two months but I remember nothin. My fingers used to hurt really bad when I played guitar. I stopped because of it." tyra-banks-inauguration-tyra-show 5. Inauguration Obama Cutouts: In January 2009, Tyra couldn't get her former guest on the show--now that he was running the country and all--so she settled for the next best thing: cardboard cutouts of the first family during President Barack Obama's Inauguration!

Color on the Cover: The New Yorker Gives Michelle Obama Sleeves

michelle-obama-new-yorker-cover-sleeves.jpgmichelle-obama-sleeveless 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.

PHOTO Special: Alicia Keys, Chanel Iman & Paula Patton Are American Icons (Michelle Obama! Billie Holiday!) for Glamour

In an effort to celebrate American icons of the last seven decades, Glamour magazine has recruited "some very-2009 young talents" to reenact their greatest achievements.

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.

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."
