We haven’t heard a lot from Michelle Obama since she left the White House in January, 2017, but the former first lady has proved she’s just as fabulous and insightful as ever in a deeply personal interview for Elle magazine. 

The 54-year-old was interviewed by her good friend Oprah Winfrey, who pressed the former first lady on everything from her marriage struggles with husband Barack to her criticisms of US President Donald Trump. 

Accompanying the interview was a very glamorous photoshoot showing the mother-of-two posing in a series of fashion-forward ensembles. 

The former lawyer looked flawless in the cover shoot, as she posed in a striking black-and-white outfit by world-renowned fashion house Dior. The daring outfit features a US$1,350 (AU$1,881) white poplin shirt and matching $4,900 pleated skirt, which is layered under a $2,400 leather corset.

Michelle was surprisingly candid throughout the lengthly interview with Oprah, and spoke openly about the difficulties she and husband Barack have faced in their marriage. She recalled how difficult she found it to manage Barack’s hectic work schedule when he first entered politics and how his long hours away from the family home put pressure on their family.

“Barack Obama taught me how to swerve,” she said. “But his swerving sort of—you know, I’m flailing in the wind. And now I’ve got two kids, and I’m trying to hold everything down while he’s traveling back and forth from Washington or Springfield.

While the couple went to counselling to talk through their struggles, Michelle told Oprah it was a much different experience to what she had anticipated.

“Well, you go because you think the counselor [sic] is going to help you make your case against the other person. ‘Would you tell him about himself?!’ And lo and behold, counseling [sic] wasn’t that at all,” she said. “It was about me exploring my sense of happiness. What clicked in me was that I need support and I need some from him. But I needed to figure out how to build my life in a way that works for me.”

“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.”
