Michelle Obama, “the First Lady the world fell in love with,” is featured on the cover of Vogue’s December 2016 issue to discuss her final days in the White House.

The First Lady of the United States, 52, looks absolutely stunning in the photos, shot by Annie Leibovitz. Michelle is wearing a Carolina Herrera dress and Monique Pean earrings on the cover. She is wearing an Atelier Versace dress in the inside image.

Here is what she shared with the mag:

On her role as First Lady: “Everything we do is by choice. I could have spent eight years doing anything, and at some level, it would have been fine. I could have focused on flowers. I could have focused on décor. I could have focused on entertainment. Because any First Lady, rightfully, gets to define her role. There’s no legislative authority; you’re not elected. And that’s a wonderful gift of freedom.”

On life after the White House: “I will take the same approach leaving as I did coming in. I won’t know until I’m there. I’ve never been the former First Lady of the United States before… but I will always be engaged in some way in public service and public life.”

On her fashion choices: “It all boils down to comfort level: If I’m going to make you comfortable, than I have to be comfortable first. So my first reaction isn’t ‘Who made this?’ But ‘Let’s try it on. What does it look like? Oooh, that’s cute. Oh, wow. I never thought of wearing something like this. let’s put a belt on it. I feel gooood in this.’ There are definitely designers that I love, people I love to work with. And who they are as people matters. Are they good people? Do they treat their staff well? Do they treat my staff well? Are they young? Can I give them a boost? But! When all of that is equal…is it cute?!”

      Our very own Michelle Obama screams CLASS!!!

      How did Amelica (in Melania voice)play into the hand of a ball of joke the Trumps? Whose wife of president -elect’s choice to wear a party monostrap body suit for acceptance speech? Low class,very low class, lowest class ever! What ever happened to proper traditional dresses and suits?

      Melania welcome to Amerlica!

      Just stop! There is nothing wrong with melania’s dress. Michelle Obama didn’t wear traditional dresses and suits through her husband’s presidency

    Beautiful pictures, I love this lady so much. I’m feeling depressed knowing that Michelle will be replaced by MeHOEnia.

    I will give cheeto Trump and his family the same amount of respect the people who voted for trump gave Barrack Obama and his family for the past 8 years. Which is NONE

    Not a fan of Melania but as she didn’t ask to be president, I’ll leave her out of my insults. I don’t care if America wants Trump or not as long as the naira gets stronger so I can travel peacefully. So please let’s focus on growing our own economy so we can stop caring so much how the white house impacts us.

    That said…Michelle forever….#firstladyboooflife… i need her bory secrets and absolutely wish her, Barack and their babies a better love story than ever! Mmuah!
