The magnificent beam of light that is Michelle Obama brought her enviable brainz to Eastern Kentucky University this past weekend to deliver the 2013 commencement address, and as usual, the First Lady DOMINATED.
Cue to 5:05 and watch Mrs. Obama's inspiring speech (above)!
As is her custom, Michelle's address is peppered with personal examples as a means to strengthen her arguments: arguments of perseverance, community, creativity, compassion and hope.
She challenges the graduates to really consider themselves — who they were as college students, who they are now, and who they want to be in the future.
Oh it makes us feel like we're graduating all over again, sniff!
Prince Harry couldn’t be more swoon-worthy. Seriously, you guyz!
During his visit to the White House yesterday, the Royal attended a tea party in the East Room hosted by Michelle Obama in honor of military families.
Upon the prince’s grand entrance, the First Lady exclaimed:
"Well … Surprise!"
And this is why Michelle Obama is a BOSS!
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started the trend 'Kaepernicking' last December, which is a touchdown celebration that consists of leaning your head down to kiss your biceps, and even though the trend simmered down after the season came to a close, FLOTUS is bringing it back!!
Yesterday, Colin tweeted:
Could there BE a bigger powerhouse duo at the Democratic National Committee LGBT gala than Jason Collins and Michelle Obama??
We think not!
Not only is Michelle one of our favorite people on this planet, but she's being joined by a history-maker! Jason just became the first gay player actively still in the NBA, having chosen to come out while he's a free agent so as not to distract any team he was a part of! Even the President Barack Obama called him on the same day to congratulate him!
Tickets are starting at $1,250 per person and go up to $32,400 per couple to chair the event. That's SUPER expensive, but the night is gonna be worth it!
We can't wait to hear how it goes!

The Move Your Body event took place yesterday in New York and Los Angeles, as well as other major cities across the country!
Oh wait, you're not sure what that is?? How did you miss the video we made for it?? It has over 700,000 VIEWS AND COUNTING!
During the event brought to you by the WAT-AAH! Foundation, celebrities performed and danced with over 500 students at the Avenues of The World School in support of Michelle Obama's 3rd annual Let's Move! initiative. It didn't stop there, though! 250,000 kids danced all around the world in support!
The best part about this is that we DON'T have to keep it a one-day thing! We can all get out and move every day of our lives! THAT's how you experience the world and stay healthy at the same time!!
So fab! Check out the amazeballz recap video (above)!!
Fashion peeps simply cannot stop talking about Michelle Obama's style, and Simon Doonan is the latest to offer up his two cents.
The Barneys creative ambassador-at-large was recently asked if he thinks FLOTUS is chic. He replied:
"She dresses appropriately. I don't think of her as being chic. As a public servant you can never appear to be chic. You need to look kind."
Though he certainly has a point about dressing appropriately as a politician, we just can't believe he doesn't think MObama is chic. She may not be a fashionista/clotheshorse like Sarah Jessica Parker or Anna Dello Russo (that would be WILD!), but she is always stylin'.
If anything we'd say she's very chic, but in an understated way.
Ch-ch-check out some of the first lady's chicest looks in the gallery (below)!
Do U agree with what Simon says???

It's obvious that Michelle Obama and Jennifer Aniston have gorgeous arms, so we're not entirely surprised that they have inspired many women to get upper arm plastic surgery.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the procedure called brachioplasty, which gets rid of loose skin in the upper arm, increased by 4,378% last year as 15,000 women decided to go under the knife.
And even though the procedure leaves a visible scar from your elbow to your armpit, the ASPS said:
