Inspiring insights, advice, and style for every woman who admires the popular and poised First Lady Michelle Obama

Embodying style, class, and intelligence, Michelle Obama has quickly become an American icon. Rising from modest beginnings, she went on to earn an Ivy League education, a position at a top law firm, and a pivotal role beside President Barack Obama. Yet Michelle still faces the same issues as most women today. As they watch her juggle kids, marriage, and a seemingly nonstop calendar without breaking a sweat, American women are asking, What Would Michelle Do?

Award-winning Newsweek journalist Allison Samuels, who has interviewed the First Lady numerous times, follows the trajectory of Michelle's life to illustrate the determination, intellect, and charm that drove her success-and reveals how women can incorporate those same attributes to get everything Michelle has, from her toned arms to her grace under pressure to her happy marriage. With the 2012 elections looming, Michelle continues to be in the public's eye. Covering a range of lifestyle topics-from creating a distinctive style to conquering obstacles to managing a household-What Would Michelle Do? combines solid advice with a fun package that will appeal to style mavens, soccer moms, and career women alike.

Library Journal
When Michelle Obama was at Princeton and then at Harvard Law School, I wonder if she knew that she would be a fashion and lifestyle icon to millions. An idea book on making the First Lady's sense of style all your own; fruitfully read with Mikki Taylor's Commander in Chic: Every Woman's Guide to Managing Her Style Like a First Lady, coming from Atria in November.
