Today is Michelle Obama’s 49th birthday. To celebrate, she gave herself a brand new Twitter account, and then did what everyone else does upon joining social media: She tweeted out a selfie. Holy bangs.
We take back what we said at the end of the year about blunt bangs going bye-bye: Michelle Obama looks so good with these bangs that we’re sure tons of admirers are going to grab their kitchen scissors and start chopping away.
The FLOTUS has had pretty versatile side swept long bangs in the past which she can wear down or pulled back at will. But with these new bangs, she really committed, and the risk paid off. She looks so young, not that she looks anywhere near 49-years-old anyway. (Oh, and the dress is Zac Posen, according to the New York Daily News. We’ve been so distracted by the bangs that we forgot to look at her dress for a sec.)
First Kate Middleton, then Kim Kardashian, now MObama. Leave it to the FLOTUS to get the gutsiest bangs of all.
