America’s most recent women figure, Michelle Obama, helped her husband Barack take office through her motherly personification. However, once it was clear Barack was going to take the 2008 campaign, Michelle transformed into a fashion icon. With designers insisting she sported their latest looks, Michelle Obama is also transforming the American women. With the First Lady wearing designer clothing, one might say, “of course that’s what she wears; she’s married to the president of the United States.” However, such is not the case. Michelle Obama has proven to American women that they have the time to dress and look nice every morning and excel in the world, while still caring to the family at home. The current First Lady is a symbol among today’s women because she is a walking example of how a woman can conquer any task.
