Michelle Obama fully endorsed Hillary Clinton in a speech to the Democratic National Convention in July, and she hasn’t stopped there. Since then, Obama has hit the campaign trail in support of Clinton, encouraging the nation to elect her as the next president.
At the DNC, Obama, who opted for a Christian Siriano dress paired with Jimmy Choo’s Romy metallic pumps, talked about Clinton’s lifelong devotion to the country’s children and her unwavering passion over the years. “She never buckles under pressure, never takes the easy way out and Hillary Clinton has never quit on anything in her life,” Obama said.
Earlier this month, Obama spoke to a crowd of Clinton supporters in Charlotte, N.C., wearing bright red patent leather pumps and a floral dress. While onstage, she said, “I do this because I truly believe that this election matters. I truly want for our young people a president that they can look up to.”
In September, the first lady went with another floral ensemble, pairing the dress with classic black power pumps for a campaign rally at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va.
Outside of the campaign, Obama has been working diligently on her Let Girls Learn initiative. On Tuesday, she appeared alongside actress Meryl Streep to present the debut screening of her CNN documentary, “We Will Rise,” which coincided with the International Day of the Girl. Earlier on Tuesday, the first lady was also on hand for a panel conversation with Glamour magazine. She looked chic in black stilettos and a black and white flower dress.
“There is no one reason why girls aren’t educated. It could be that there's a sheer difference in the values that families place in their sons over the daughters. Sometimes girls are married off very early. Some families believe that it's a better investment to have the girls stay at home and take care of household chores. But you all are the ones who are going to change the culture, because you're going to raise your girls with a different understanding of why education is important. And that's how change really happens.” –The First Lady to young girls in Jordan on overcoming obstacles to their education during a conversation with @GlamourMag on #DayOfTheGirl. #LetGirlsLearn
