Michelle Obama Reveals What She's Looking Forward To After the White House

Michelle Obama takes the cover of InStyle magazine’s October 2016 issue in a beautiful custom Brandon Maxwell dress.

Here’s what the First Lady of the United States had to share with the mag:

On her Let Girls Learn initiative: “Sixty-two million girls around the world aren’t in school, and the first thing that comes to my mind is, ‘That could’ve been me.’ [I think about] how I would have felt at the age of 10 or 11 or 12 if somebody walked up and said, ‘That’s it. Your dreams are over! You’re going to have to leave school and get married to somebody twice your age and start having kids.’”

On what she’s looking forward to after the White House: “My hopes are to recapture some of the everydayness, some anonymity. And we know that will take some time. But I always joke that I dream of opening up my front door and walking out without any notification, without any security…and it will be nice to open up the paper, look at the front page, and know that you’re not responsible for every headline… It’s sort of like, It’s not my job.”

On her personal style: “Very casual. No makeup, no T-shirt, and a pair of ripped jean shorts or workout pants because I’m always on the verge of going to or coming from [working out]. I love color and pieces that make me feel good, but it’s much more informal.”

    Michael Obama looks great actually. How long will it take until the truth is out?

    The truth? The truth is in front of your face and you still can’t see it or just in denial. Her arms are way muscular and they softened her face as well and made her look 20 years younger.
