Olympians might be role models themselves, but the athletes have people they look up to as well. Yahoo Lifestyle asked 13 athletes competing at the 2018 PyeongChang Games who inspires them and the common theme: moms, Michelle Obama, and Serena Williams. Serena Williams is a huge inspiration for me.
Melania Trump hosted her first event at the White House Kitchen Garden on Friday, inviting members of the Boys and Girls Club to help her harvest fruits and vegetables.
Only when she does it, it breaks the Internet thanks to her glorious natural hair texture. "That picture is recent!" Johnny Wright, Mrs. Obama's trusted hairstylist, exclusively confirms to Refinery29.
To kick things off on inauguration day, Melania Trump stepped out in a light blue coat with matching gloves. The future first lady, who accompanied her husband President-elect Donald J. Trump to St. John’s Episcopal Church before heading to the White House Friday morning, paired a custom Ralph Lauren Collection Sky Blue Double Face Cashmere Mock Turtleneck Dress with a Ralph Lauren Collection Sky Blue Double Face Cashmere Cropped Cutaway Jacket.
Being the first lady comes with a lot of responsibility. And while being a trendsetter certainly pales in comparison to the weight of attempting to curb the childhood obesity problem in the United States or getting kids moving, dressing fashionably is part of the job. A few years into her husband’s presidency, Michelle Obama has already set herself apart from her predecessors, bringing a modern edge — and even J. Crew — to the White House. She’s also a political dresser, conscientiously picking labels to fit with occasions, from wearing a custom Vera Wang gown for a state dinner hosting Chinese President Xi Jinping and Tadashi Shoji when Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie Abe came to Washington to Missoni in Italy and Preen in England.

It will be the end of an era when reigning FLOTUS Michelle Obama packs up her fashion-filled suitcases and heads out of the White House next year, but the close of her husband’s term isn’t slowing down our girl’s style game one bit. There was the Bryan Rafanelli stunner she donned while showing off the […]
Michelle Obama won the week. For her last state dinner at the White House, she looked incredible in a gold gown entirely made of chainmail just for her by Italian designer Donatella Versace. FLOTUS wasn’t the only one to slay in Versace — Rachel McAdams wore a custom piece from the Italian brand too for the premiere of her new Marvel movie Doctor Strange. At their respective film debuts, Alicia Vikander, Anna Kendrick, Cobie Smulders, and Jessica Biel all put their best high heels forward for the special occasions. ...
Michelle Obama is going out with a bang — sartorially speaking, that is. During the final state dinner hosted by the Obama White House for Italy, the first lady dazzled in a firework of a dress. Custom made for her by Atelier Versace, the rose gold gown’s made entirely of chain mail and features an off-the-shoulder strap as well as bodice ruching and flattering draping.“I am humbled and honored to have had the opportunity to dress the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama,” Italian designer Donatella Versace wrote on Instagram. “Thank you, Michelle, for all the things you have done for America and for the world, and especially, for empowering and inspiring women everywhere.”The Versace gown isn’t the only amazing gown FLOTUS has worn to host state dinners in Washington, DC.

Everyone loves a fashionista, and we love her even more when it comes to being someone who does so much, for so many different causes. She’s cool enough to be FLOTUS and she she has her Carpool Karaoke game on point. From the most recent State Dinner hosted by President Obama along with his First Lady, Michelle Obama, we couldn’t help but love her look! Looking stunning in an ivory number by Brandon Maxwell, we think Lady Gaga’s stylist has got his edgy-meets-chic tone on fleek!Apart from the rock solid outfit she picked for the look, FLOTUS had her hair in the perfect faux bob, making her look seem more composed and futuristic than ever. The back of the outfit had most people confused though: was it a gown? Did it also have pants inside? Well, it seems the latter might be true. Coming in from the same line as Lady Gaga’s Oscars 2016 outfit did, we think this whole look creates the perfect ensemble for the occasion.The laser sharp details on the front, going all the way down to the sides, where they met the waist cinch were the elements that pulled this look together brilliantly!For the finishing touches: let’s not forget those gorgeous hoop-in-hoop earrings with the pink lippy! We’re giving this look an 8 out of 10, what about you?
It’s one of the best feelings in the world to have your special someone found in life, and it gets even more special when wonderful things happen to you, together and individually. Now when you’re the most powerful man on the planet, or his First Lady, we’re sure everything gets even more magnified! But does that keep them from feeling like a teenage couple that’s so in love? Definitely doesn’t seem like it! At the most recent State Dinner for the Prime Minister of Singapore, hosted by Barack Obama and FLOTUS, we couldn’t help but sit back and go ‘awww’ at how adorably this couple shares its cute little moments amidst so much chaos. Little moments that capture them looking into each others eyes are definitely giving the rest of us career junkies some massive goals! Who doesn’t want a partner you can have serious as well as fun chats with, right? Perfectly dressed in black and white, they make the ideal Power Couple that’ll make you sit back, observe and get green with envy!
After bringing her Let Girls Learn initiative to Europe last summer, Michelle Obama is continuing to draw attention to adolescent education. Her latest efforts involve a three-nation trip to shed light on the millions of girls around the world who are not in school. On Monday, the first lady, who brought along her daughters, Sasha, 15, and Malia, 17, and mother Marian Robinson, landed in Libera. “This is the special girl-power unit of the Obama household,” she said. “We left the president behind because he’s a boy.” Wearing an abstract floral print dress, the family was welcomed to the Western African country with a red carpet and traditional dancers. Following the announcement that the United States would be providing $27 million in aid for the expansion of the Let Girls Learn Peace Corps program in the country as well as meeting with Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the first elected female head of state in Africa, the Obamas moved on to Morocco.On the second leg of the first family’s tour, they were met by Frieda Pinto and Meryl Streep for a panel discussion moderated by CNN’s Isha Sesay in Marrakesh and delivered even more money to help some of the 62 million girls worldwide lacking access to formal education.The last part of the six-day trip will be in Spain, where FLOTUS will deliver a speech. The message she’s trying to get across is this: “You have the power, right now, to step up and be a champion for those 62 million girls who aren’t in school. You have everything you need right now to raise awareness about their stories and to support their efforts to get an education.”Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
Yesterday, Barack Obama attended a baseball game with his family and Cuban President Raul Castro, opting for a casual look in a crisp white shirt and khaki pants — in stark contrast to the rest of his family, all wearing vibrant color and patterns. At the baseball outing — the first MLB exhibition game to be played in Cuba in nearly 20 years — Obama didn’t take off his Oliver Peoples sunglasses once (not even for interviewers). Despite the steep price tag, Obama looked great in his sunnies: The boxy acetate frames fit his face perfectly, and there wasn’t a flashy logo, which provided for a stylish, but not-too-trendy look.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was given a state dinner at the White House, at which Sasha and Malia Obama made their state dinner debut as well.
To welcome Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, his wife Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, and their three young children to the United States, it only makes sense that the first lady and the president would invite their coolest Canadian friends to a state dinner. On Thursday, Michelle — dressed in a custom navy blue and floral strapless gown from Jason Wu, the designer who made her inauguration dress in 2008 — Barack, Sasha, and Malia Obama welcomed Sara Bareilles, Sandra Oh, Michael J. Fox, and more prominent people from the Great White North to the White House. Blake Lively, who wore a silk robe-like design from Ralph & Russo, accompanied her Vancouver-born husband, Ryan Reynolds (clad in Burberry), to the event. Mike Myers shocked by showing off, well, his shock white hair, and Nancy Pelosi glowed in a light-blue gown.

Kris Jenner might’ve been the coolest mom at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, but Michelle Obama takes the prize for chillest in the nation. The first lady claimed her title on Thursday when a video of the 51-year-old rapping to promote higher education was released.
The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, sat down with Stephen Colbert on the The Late Show Monday night and, with just over a year left in the White House, dreamt of what she’ll do when it’s time to go. Being able to open windows, which she apparently doesn’t have the security clearance to do.
Hail to the chief? How about bow down to the first lady? At the state dinner in honor of Chinese President Xi Jinping on Friday night, all eyes were on Michelle Obama, who was a vision in a custom Vera Wang gown. “It is such a privilege, as an American of Chinese heritage, to have dressed First Lady @MichelleObama for this state dinner honoring President Xi Jinping and First Lady Peng Liyuan, of the People’s Rebublic of China,” Vera Wang tweeted. Wang’s most recent collection shown at New York Fashion Week featured similar characteristics, which was mostly all black and very voluminous. In attendance were many high-profile guests, including Empire creator Lee Daniels, who brought his chic mother as his date, Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Dr. Priscilla Chan, American Ballet Theatre Principal Dancer Misty Copeland, and more. Everyone dined on Maine lobster poached in butter and served with traditional rice noodle rolls embedded with spinach, shiitake mushrooms and leeks made by guest chef Anita Lo, a former Top Chef contestant. Ne-Yo, who accessorized his tuxedo with a fedora and gold chain, performed for the distinguished — and stylish — attendees.

Today Beyoncé turned the ripe ol’ age of 34, but it might as well been her 40th or 50th with the way the world has reacted. Michelle Obama thanked her for being a role model in a tweet and Gwyneth Paltrow posted the picture above where she is splayed out on a carpet next to GP’s daughter Apple. Meanwhile the September Vogue cover star’s family and closest friends collaborated on a playlist together. While Jay Z chose “Yellow” by Coldplay (bringing it back to Paltrow & co) because it “reminds him of going on vacation” with his wife, baby girl Blue Ivy opted for the song that shared her name, “Blue,” from The Little Mermaid.
