Michelle Obama Dances in Jimmy Choo to Co-Host Ellen DeGeneres Show

Ellen DeGeneres welcomed Michelle Obama to dance across the stage with her when the first lady — wearing nude heels by Jimmy Choo — co-hosted DeGeneres’ TV talk show on Sept. 13.

DeGeneres opened by saying, “Today I’m co-hosting with the first lady of the U.S. Isn’t this exciting? What an honor for her.” When Obama arrived, the jokes kept on coming from DeGeneres: “You know you’re going to have to squat a little bit; you’re too tall. I think I’m going to regret saying this, but I should have worn heels.”
