President Barack Obama joked at the White House Correspondents' dinner this weekend that an alarming percentage of poll respondents prefer his better half.

Self-deprecation aside, First Lady Michelle Obama more than holds her own, and not just when it comes to besting Ellen at pushups or being a fashion icon.

For Saturday's Hollywood-meets-Washington bash, President Obama's wife, 48, looked regal yet flirty in a strapless paisley organza gown by Naemm Khan:

Beautiful Michelle Obama Photo

The mother of two accentuated the dress by wearing her hair in loose, tousled waves, accessorized with gold hoop earrings. As always, the end result was stunning.

Mrs. Obama cracked up sitting next to the night's host Jimmy Kimmel, who roasted the President and scores of other A-list attendees during a 25-minute speech.

The night's guests included George Clooney, Reese Witherspoon, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria, Anna Paquin, Steven Spielberg, Tony Romo, Candice Crawford, Matthew Morrison, Kate Hudson, Rick Santorum and Lindsay Lohan.

During a speaking engagement to mark the one-year anniversary of her Joining Forces initiative, which helps honor and support America's military families, Michelle Obama brought in a special guest live via satellite:

Ellen DeGeneres!

In addition to discussing this very worthy cause Monday, the First Lady and Ellen rehashed their push-up contest from earlier this year. Take a look:

In the second half of their talk, Ellen spoke with military families, and then delighted the audience by unveiling a photo of Michelle's senior prom dress ...

"That split was a little high," Obama said, laughing. "I don't know if I'd let my kids go out with a split that high, so let's not show this to Malia and Sasha."

It's not what you think of when you think of Michelle Obama photos nowadays, no. Ellen showed off her amazing prom pic too. Check it out below:

She's won Grammy Awards and Country Music Awards. Seen albums go platinum. And double platinum. And triple platinum.

But Taylor Swift will receive an honor this Saturday night that not even she has enjoyed to this point in her career: recognition from the First Lady.

  • Taylor Swift in Hollywood
  • Michelle Obama in Florida

Michelle Obama will present Swift with Big Help Award at the Kids' Choice Awards this weekend, during a ceremony that airs at 8 p.m. on March 31 on Nickelodeon.

Obama - who received the trophy herself in 2010 - will praise Swift for her incredible charity work, including time dedicated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the St. Jude Medical Center and Habitat for Humanity.

If it were up to us, Taylor would also receive an honor just for this Academy of Country Music Awards-themed video with her cat. It's adorable!

Michelle Obama posed for a photo this week with her dog, Bo.

Not particularly newsworthy, we realize ... but CUTE worthy!

"He is my son," the First Lady told David Letterman earlier this week about the adorable Portuguese Water Dog's role in her life. "I have two girls – and a boy."

Michelle Obama has always said that she considers herself the Mom-in-Chief, and in true mom form, she had nothing but praise for her furry "kid."

"Bo is wonderful. He is the smartest dog on the planet."

When Dave expressed doubts about Portuguese water dogs and their allegedly perfect behavior, the First Lady assured him that Bo has nothing but positive qualities.

"He's a very sweet dog. I'm not being biased. He's very well-mannered, he's very even-tempered ... He has a very busy schedule, appearances."

"I'm thinking about getting him an agent."

In a visit to The Late Show with David Letterman Monday, First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama discussed her relationship with her own parents.

An emotional Michelle, who considers herself the mother of Sasha and Malia above everything else, said her parents instilled in her the values she passes on.

They provided "absolute, complete, unconditional love ... the notion that kids really don't need anything but to know that their parents adore them."

She said she and the president have passed that trait onto their children: "Don't make me cry: This isn't Oprah!” she said. “It's supposed to be Letterman!"

Michelle Obama also discussed her recent incognito trip to Target, which was figured out when a woman asked her to help reach something on a high shelf.

The 48-year-old, who stands 5'10", said after she obliged, the grateful woman joked with her, "You didn't have to make it look so easy!"

"That was my interaction, and it felt so good!" she said.

    First Lady Michelle Obama talks the talk and walks the walk.

    When the 48-year-old campaigns for the importance of health and physical fitness, she leads by example, as she proved today on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in L.A.

    Michelle Obama accepted a bold challenge by DeGeneres to see who could do the most push-ups, with both women flinging off their dress coats on the spot.

    Who won? Watch the video here and see!

    “How many was that for her?” asked DeGeneres after tapping out early (but by no means embarrassingly early) and both women had finished. “Twenty five?”

    “I just stopped,” said the smiling First Lady.

    Sorry Ellen. On the bright side, you hung in there for a while, and there's no way Jay Leno (whose show Michelle visited Tuesday) could do even one.

    First Lady Michelle Obama cajoled Jay Leno into eating healthy foods for the first time in ... oh, ever during her visit to the Tonight Show on NBC Tuesday.

    Promoting her “Let’s Move!” campaign to get kids excited about fitness and healthy diets, Michelle brought out some food to make an example out of Jay.

    As both Jay and Michelle joked repeatedly about his eating habits, Leno sampled apples, sweet potato fries and a pizza made with eggplant, peppers and zucchini.

    Could've used some sausage, but even Jay conceded it wasn't bad.

    Michelle Obama encouraged Jay to dip his apple in honey made from beehives in the White House garden: “It will help it go down easier,” she said.

    “'White House honey'? That just sounds bad,” Leno replied, adding, “You know, with a different president that could mean a whole different thing.”

    In California to promote her initiative and attend a pair of fundraising events, Michelle also talked about her daughters and her husband's reelection campaign.

    She even praised Mitt Romney singing at a recent event. Classy woman.
