Michelle Obama's arms are out. It's all about the bangs now. The First Lady made headlines for her new hairdo before the inauguration, but now that time has passed, we can officially rule that the look is a win — especially in her brand-new official White House portrait.
The loveliest of all the FLOTUSes shows off her not-as-new cut in her official photo for 2013, and guess what? She looks fierce and flawless. Bangin', even, if you're into silly puns like that. (You should be, because they are one of life's simple pleasures.)
In the new portrait for President Obama's second term, taken by Chuck Kennedy, Michelle poses in the White House's Green Room wearing white pearls with a simple, long-sleeved dark dress — all the better to show off her 'do.
What do you think of the portrait? Which style statement is your favorite: Obama's bare arms or her bangs?
