"He’s always asking: ‘Is that new? I haven’t seen that before.’ It’s like, Why don’t you mind your own business? Solve world hunger. Get out of my closet."

- Michelle Obama on her husband's interest in fashion

Reporters are not the only ones with a particularly keen interest in what Michelle Obama wears these days. Barack Obama, Michelle says, notices everything.

In fact, Michelle has learned not to wear a certain gray metallic belt when the president is around: "Barack calls it my Star Trek belt,” the first lady said in an interview with the New York Times this week. “He doesn’t understand fashion.”

She teasingly imitated him: “You didn’t need more shoes. The shoes you had on yesterday were fine. Why can’t you just wear that for the rest of the presidency?”

The First Lady breaks ground on the White House vegetable garden.

The First Lady of the United States said she was not naturally thin and, like most other people, Michelle Obama must exercise and watch what she eats.

“I have hips, and I have them covered up with pleats,” she said.

To keep those hips from spreading, she said, she follows an exercise regimen of light weights, calisthenics, jump-rope and a cardiovascular routine.

Up-and-coming fashion designer Jason Wu may have gotten major attention after he created Michelle Obama's inaugural ball gown, but it looks like Michael Kors is running a close second with some non-TV-related press thanks to Mrs. O, too.

Not only did Michelle Obama's White House portrait feature a black Kors ensemble, but she sports an eye-scorching blood orange (red?) dress on the April cover of O.

This is celebrity fashion news in and of itself, as the only person to ever grace the cover of O during its nine year history is, well, the Big O herself. We mean Oprah.

Bruce Weber shot the cover of the magazine, upon which Oprah is wearing Rachel Roy and touting this as the first interview Obama allowed in the White House.

Technically, wouldn't that honor belong to the already-released March issue of Vogue? Either way, do you like the dress Michelle wears on the new cover of O?

The wife of U.S. President Barack Obama has become our de facto celebrity style icon in-chief since he took office in January. She recently became the second First Lady to grace the cover of Vogue (after Hillary Rodham Clinton).

Michelle Obama's first official portrait as First Lady of the United States (and unofficial First Lady of Fashion) was released by the White House on Friday.

She appears in a Michael Kors black shift dress and pearls in the photo, taken in the famed home's "Blue Room." Here she is looking stunning as always:

In an interview with Andre Leon Talley for the new issue of Vogue, she opens up about helping Sasha, 7, and Malia, 10, adjust to life in Washington, D.C.

"I'm going to try to take them to school every morning - as much as I can," she says. "But there's also going to be a measure of independence. And obviously there will be times where I won't be able to drop them off at all."

"I always like to be a presence in my kids' school," the First Mom added. "I want to know their teachers; I want to know the other parents."

Just one month after her husband took the nation's most famous oath of office, the First Lady of the United States has become quite the celebrity style icon.

From various outfits on the campaign trail to January's inaugural ball gowns, Michelle Obama fashion has been a topic of great discussion, most of it positive.

The First Lady of United States, Michelle Obama, is making history again – this time by becoming only the second president's wife to appear on the cover of Vogue.

Michelle Obama was photographed by famed shooter Annie Leibovitz at the Hay-Adams Hotel, where the Obamas stayed before last month's inauguration.

While nearly every first lady – beginning with Herbert Hoover's wife, Lou, in 1929 – has been photographed for the fashion bible, only Hillary Rodham Clinton was featured on the cover, in December 1998, according to a Vogue spokesman.

Michelle Obama's previous portrait in the magazine back in 2007 catapulted her to fashion fame. Here's a look at that photo of "The Natural" ...

Michelle Obama: Vogue

In the March issue of the magazine, the cover of which appears below, Michelle Obama is seen wearing a magenta dress by Jason Wu, who designed her inaugural gown, and also pictured in a black dress by Narciso Rodriguez.

Vogue editor Anna Wintour writes, "Change was the clarion call of Barack Obama's campaign, but I don't think any of us at Vogue initially realized that would include the difference that was going to be made by First Lady Michelle Obama's wardrobe. It's inspiring to see our first lady so serene and secure in her personal style."
