Melania Trump wants to make a couple of things clear:

She won't say if he's decided to run yet, but that she "will support him no matter what he decides" and says he's not alone in his "birther" suspicion.

"Well I think it's not only my husband that wants to see the birth certificate. I think it's a lot of people who voted for him and who didn't vote for President Obama."

Melania, a native of Slovenia, says people are just frustrated.

"They ask where it is and why he doesn't show it. Does he have it? Where is it? Why not show it? What's the big deal? I'd show [mine]. What's the problem?"

Hawaii state officials swear that they have inspected Obama's original document and a Certificate of Live Birth was released during the 2008 campaign.

Trump has been called out by George Stephanopoulos, Bill O'Reilly and many others for beating what some think is a dead horse, but he persists.

Just today, he called in to Fox News to say "I think I've made my decision" on running and he vowed to continue to talk about Obama's citizenship.

Barack may be a Communist, but Michelle Obama's fashion has won raves the world over, with the First Lady landing on more best-dressed lists than we can count.

Rocking everything from haute designers to H&M, Michelle does it all. But not alone. Enter Meredith Koop, a 29-year-old Vanderbilt University graduate.

This youngster has taken over the role of Michelle's personal stylist.

Koop was sent to the White House to help out with Obama’s fashion needs from Michelle's previous fashion coordinator before taking over the role full time.

A White House spokesperson says Koop is a “personal aide to the First Lady and a member of the White House Residence staff” with duties beyond fashion.

However, Koop’s “responsibilities include advising the first lady on her wardrobe and acting on her behalf in arranging for purchases." So ... personal stylist!

Sounds like a good gig if you can get it, are we right? For more moments in First Lady fashion, browse through our Michelle Obama pictures below:

First Lady Michelle Obama is often lauded for fashion sense, ranging from chic and high-end couture to affordable, practical pieces anyone might wear.

Earlier this week, she appeared on the Today show in $34.95 dress from none other than H&M! The dress also comes sleeveless, and is available now.

Michelle Obama's State Dinner dress won raves from many style scribes last week, but one prominent designer isn't a fan of it - specifically its origins.

Oscar de la Renta has taken the First Lady to task because the gown she donned at the dinner, in honor of Chinese President Hu Jintao, was European.

“The visit was to promote American-Chinese trade," he said. "American products in China and Chinese products in America. Why wear European clothes?”

MADE IN THE UK: Does de la Renta have a point?

The Michelle Obama pictures above show the elegant red-to-black gown, designed by Sarah Burton from the late Alexander McQueen’s design house.

McQueen was British, as is Burton, and de la Renta thought that Barack's better half should have worn an American designer's work for the occasion.

Everyone's a critic. What do you think of Michelle's dress?

The Alexander McQueen dress Michelle Obama wore to the White House State Dinner for the Republic of China marked another fashion risk for the First Lady.

But was it one that hit or missed?

Dressed in a red petal print silk organza gown, Michelle was both fashionably bold and diplomatic, as the brilliant red is a symbol of luck in Chinese culture:

Despite a visiting Chinese President and an A-list guest list, all eyes were on the First Lady, whose impact on the global fashion industry has been unrivaled.

First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama may be our fashionista-in-chief, but that doesn't mean she can't be our resident recessionista-in-chief as well.

Michelle has been recycling outfits lately. Now, that's change we can believe in!

Mya Fashion Choice

Case in point: Here's the First Couple at Camp David recently, with Michelle looking chic in a navy sweater with an open back paired with a floral blouse ...

Then, in Ohio on Sunday,  the outfit was repeated with a twist: The cardigan was now worn the other way, with the lace-up side in the front. How inventive!

Either way, the sweater looks good, as do most things she wears (as our gallery of Michelle Obama pictures demonstrates), thanks to her classy, unique style.

See the flip side of her latest style statement post-jump ...

Brandy quickly emerged as one of the favorites on Dancing With the Stars this season after a strong opening performance. But is she favored in this showdown?

The competition is pretty tough. Earlier this month, the First Lady of the United States wore a bronze and navy Kevan Hall polka-dot shirt dress and blue pumps.

Days later, Brandy attended Macy's Glamorama bash in an identical dress (only with reversed colors) paired with red shoes and bold lips. But who looked better?

Check out the Brandy and Michelle Obama pictures below and vote:

Oprah knows a good investment when she sees one.

Early in the 2008 presidential campaign, she threw her support behind a little-known U.S. Senator named Barack Obama. We all know how that turned out.

The Big O is also high on the First Lady of the United States - specifically her fashion sense. Taking style cues from Michelle turned out to be a wise move.

Yesterday, while hosting J.Crew’s Creative Director Jenna Lyons on a special “Dream Jobs” episode of her show, the media made an interesting admission.

After seeing Michelle Obama pictures showing her in relatively affordable J. Crew cardigans, sweaters and skirts, O went and became a J. Crew investor.

Oprah knows a style star when she sees one.

“The very first time I saw the First Lady, before she became the First Lady, wearing J. Crew - full disclosure – I went and bought J.Crew stock,” she said.

The host also said putting her money on Michelle’s mix-it-up, high-low look was indeed a smart bet, saying, “That [investment] was a very good decision."

Good thing, too. In these troubled economic times, Oprah needs all the financial breaks she can get. Hey, better than her taking advice from Octomom.

If it's somehow inappropriate, offensive or in any way wrong to call the First Lady of the United States sexy ... we apologize. And we don't wanna be right!

Michelle Obama got a makeover over the weekend, as you can see.

Speaking about her Let's Move childhood obesity initiative at Fairhill Elementary School in Philadelphia, Michelle wore one of her traditional ensembles Friday.

But the next day, previewing the Governor's Ball performances, she changed things up with a sexier Jason Wu dress, a crisscross top and sleeker, sassier bob.

What do you think of the First Lady's transformation? Check out the Michelle Obama pictures showing both looks, then vote in our survey below and tell us!

The First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama, also became the unofficial First Lady of Fashion when husband Barack became president in January.

In a new interview with Women’s Health, she reveals not only why she takes her own health (not just universal health care) seriously, but also her style.

“My father had multiple sclerosis, so I never took health for granted, because I saw a father that at the prime of his life was struck with an illness that completely changed everything in his life,” Michelle Obama told the publication.

She says she values both diet and exercise, even if she has a soft spot for fast food. As a child, she said, going to McDonald's with her family was a treat.

The First Lady maintains her figure by eating in moderation.

“We couldn’t afford to go out to dinner, so [it] was a rare treat," Michelle said. "We had theater class on Saturdays, and [afterward] if Dad turned left we were going to McDonald’s, and if he turned right we were going home."

"We’d always go, “Go left, Dad! Go left!”

He rarely did, and she says that was a good lesson.

“Those values - even though they were the result of economic circumstances - were really good, and created some healthy boundaries about food.”

Not that she doesn’t love the occasional diet-breaker.

“I do love a good burger and fries. French fries are my favorite food in the whole world. If I could, I’d eat them at every meal - but I can’t," she says.

"My whole thing is moderation. If I make good, healthy choices for me and for the family most of the time, having what I love once in a while won’t hurt.”

The Obamas eat dinner as a family almost every night, Michelle says, noting that they make time for that whenever they are able, even if things are busy.

As far as Michelle Obama's hairstyles and fashion choices, the First Lady says.

“For me fashion is fun, it’s supposed to help you feel good about yourself."

"That’s how women should focus: what makes them feel comfortable and beautiful. I wear what I love. Sometimes people like it, sometimes they don’t."

"I’m fine with that.”
