Michelle Obama’s New Portrait is Absolutely Stunning

Michelle Obama made her return to the White House on Wednesday to unveil her new portrait. This marks the first time that the former First Lady has been to the iconic residence since the end of her husband’s presidency. Joe and Jill Biden welcomed the forever FLOTUS with open arms. It’s no surprise that former president Donald Trump banned the Obama’s from the White House during his 4-year term. In his speech, President Biden spoke highly of number 44, donning him as “one of the most consequential presidents in history.”

The portrait will hang as a permanent fixture in the White House’s collection. It depicts Mrs. Obama in a gorgeous off-the-shoulder blue gown – reportedly designed by Jason Wu. In a heartfelt speech she talked about the significance of the work of art:

“For me, this day isn’t about me or Barack. It’s not even about these beautiful paintings. It’s about telling that fuller story, a story that includes every single American in every single corner of the country so that our kids and grandkids can see something more for themselves.”

Although, she is a powerful person, she is still extremely humble and respectful. She is the embodiment of class and black excellence!
