Mrs. Obama's first official portrait, by contrast, showed the President's Wife standing, and showing off her famously toned arms in a sleeveless black dress by Michael Kors.

"This is my midlife crisis, the bangs," Sasha and Malia's mom explained of the cut on The Rachael Ray Show earlier this week. "I couldn't get a sports car. They won't let me bungee jump. So instead I cut my bangs here."
