Michelle Obama proved she’s just as stylish as ever, donning a wild blue outfit as she discussed her new book Becoming with American Journalist Michelle Norris in Boston on Saturday.
The former first lady looked sensational in the standout silky ensemble which cinched in at the waist and featured wide-leg pants. Michelle, 54, finished off the striking look with simple silver accessories and wore her brunette locks out in soft waves.
In her memoir Becoming, Michelle opens up about the experiences that have shaped her — from her childhood to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the White House.
During the interview, Michelle took an indirect swipe at the crowd size at President Donald Trump’s inauguration last year, according to The Boston Globe.
She recalled Trump’s inauguration in January of last year, noticing that there were a few things that were different from her husband’s inaugurations in 2009 and 2013.
“Sitting on that stage for that inauguration was so drastically different from our two because our inauguration was more diverse,” Michelle said.
“There were people of all ages and all backgrounds, and, you know, the crowd.”
And it’s not the first time this year Michelle has commented on Trump. During an interview with Oprah Winfrey for Elle magazine in November, the former lawyer touched on her anger at Trump over his ‘birther conspiracy’ about her husband, saying he put her daughters’ lives in danger.
In 2011, Trump peddled false rumours the then-president’s birth certificate was a fake, which would make him ineligible for the presidency. Michelle told Oprah she bit her tongue at the time, but wasn’t afraid to speak out against him now.
“I want the country to take this in, in a way I didn’t say out loud, but I am saying now,” she said. “It was reckless, it put my family in danger, and it wasn’t true. And he knew it wasn’t true.”
Michelle has opened up about many aspects of her private life since the release of her book. Earlier this month, the former first lady shared her harrowing experience of miscarriage and how she had to turn to IVF to conceive her two daughters.
Speaking on American talk show Good Morning America in November, Michelle explained she felt like a failure after suffering a miscarriage 20 years ago.
She expressed concern that miscarriage is not a commonly talked about issue and that young women need to know they are not alone in going through that main.
“I felt like I failed because I didn’t know how common miscarriages were because we don’t talk about them,” she told the host. “We sit in our pain, thinking that somehow we’re broken.”
