First Lady Michelle Obama is so amazing that we had to have two writers on this Girl Crush. She is the epitome of the perfect woman — she probably has flaws somewhere but to our eyes, we see none. Here is our list of why we have girl crushes on the FLOTUS.
1. She’s a great mother
Well, I don’t know directly if this is true, but from watching her in interviews and reading about her in the newspapers, she seems amazing. She knows to give her daughters limits. She focuses on health and knowledge. She makes it a point to have family time. And she’s “hip.” Watch this video starting at 6 minutes and you’ll see.
2. Her Take on Fashion

She has great style. No, not great, impeccable. She’s sophisticated while keeping up with the latest trends. First Lady, may I please raid your closet? She keeps it real.

She could wear any designer she wants, but one of her go-to brands is J.Crew!
You can literally have what she is wearing — granted that everyone didn’t run to their local J.Crew and buy what she was rocking. And she also picks up-and-coming designers to help out their brand. Hello, Jason Wu got big because she wore his dress to the inauguration. He even collaborated with Target afterwards.

3. She likes to move
With a big concern on childhood obesity, she started the ‘Let’s Move!’ campaign. Her goal is to “solve the challenge of childhood obesity within a generation so that children born today will reach adulthood at a healthy weight.”
Look at her with Disney Channel’s Debbie Ryan and Perry the Platypus. This just made your day better.
I love how she isn’t afraid to sweat or dance crazy in public. She’s been on so many talk shows promoting the campaign, it’s great. I’m so cheesy that I think I actually cried a little when she was on some show and they did a segment with the dancing and kids got to meet her. She was so cool about it too.
4. She’s silly and witty
She and President Obama are not afraid to be silly in public. I think only pictures — and the videos above — can express this:
5. She’s a great support system
When I get married, I want to be the kind of wife to my husband as she is to Barack. Not that I know 100 percent what goes in their marriage, but from what I see, she’s his biggest support system. She never talks ill of him, he keeps his secrets, and you can tell that they are truly in love. I mean c’mon, did you see their dance at the inaugural ball? I think every woman went “Awww.”
There are other little things to that we love about her. Like how she shops at Target, how she’s a dog lover, how she’s a great role model, how she’s a great speaker, etc. But I’m guessing you don’t want to keep reading on.
