Just when I thought I couldn't love Glamour anymore, they go and put Michelle Obama on the cover of the December issue. Yayy! The December issue of Glamour has their annual "Women of the Year"recipients and, of course, Michelle Obama is one. Glamour honored her not for her style, which is impeccable may I add, but for her role in mentoring young women. She is also the first First Lady to ever appear on the cover of Glamour magazine.
Cindi Leive said she was thrilled to go and photograph Ms. Obama in the white house and was even more excited to ask her a few questions readers wanted to know.
When asked about mentoring young women, she went on to say:
“I think that mentoring is such a critical part of the role I can play in this position. I see how little bits of exposure and big bits of exposure really change my girls significantly, and I want that for more girls around the country and the world.”
She also goes on about her style and the hype it gets:
“People are always going to have opinions, and people have a right to their opinions, particularly when you’re the First Lady; you’re representing the nation. So I can’t be surprised that people are interested. But I’ve tried to be at peace with the choices that I make first, and then be open to everyone else’s reflection.”
She even gets into details about guys!:
“Cute’s good. But cute only lasts for so long, and then it’s, Who are you as a person? Don’t look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul...When you’re dating a man, you should always feel good...You shouldn’t be in a relationship with somebody who doesn’t make you completely happy and make you feel whole.”
Bravo Glamour. I can't wait to get this issue when it comes out next week :)
