First Lady Michelle Obama strikes a pose on the cover of Ebony's May issue in what is quickly becoming THE color of the month: BLUE!
In the special Mother's Day issue, FLOTUS opens up about parenting, her mom and of course hubby Barack Obama.
Here are some HIGHlights from MObama's interview:
On raising Sasha and Malia:
“Barack and I feel that our greatest responsibility is to raise two productive, respectful, kind empathetic young women.”
On counteracting negative depictions of women in pop culture for the girls:
"My husband talks to our girls about how he expects men in their lives to treat them, and he offers examples by how he treats me and how he treats them."
On the benefits of her mother Marian Robinson living at the White House:
"Anytime I need to go and plop on her couch and just talk, she’s always there."
Aww! Mrs. O sounds so down to earth, especially for someone who wears jeggings. Ha!

Barack Obama is getting some help for the 2012 Presidential election from a group of fashion designers.
The new campaign, called Runway to Win, features 22 designers which will create items to help raise funds for the election campaign.
Some of the designers
Taylor Swift officially launched her first fragrance, Wonderstruck, on Thursday night.
The country songstress made an in-store appearance at
Oh boy, another 70s inspired collection.
Tracy Reese is keeping the days of disco alive her fall 2011 offerings.
The designer said of her inspiration:
"A shot of metallic, antique copper and silver, or a vibrant pop of raspberry, aqua or amber. Breathing new life into muted neutral tones of toffee, black, brown and gray."
As much as we're over the whole 70s era, at least Tracy's designs are wearable.

Looks like Kelly Osbourne picked up some blond extensions while runway hoping around New York Fashion Week.
The Fashion Police co-host showed off her new tresses while sitting front row at Tracy Reese on Monday.
We're all for experimenting with new looks, but that fake hair is not doing her any favors.

Last week marked the 9th annual Tulips & Pansises: The Headdress Affair at Gotham Hall in New York.
The event benefits the VillageCare, a nonprofit which helps provide healthcare for those living with HIV/AIDS in New York.
The charity benefit mixed fashion and floral couture to create an elaborate catwalk full of flowery headdresses.
The City star Whitney Port even made an appearance. And Miz Kell on Earth, Kelly Cutrone, co-chaired the event with Ariana Rockefeller.
"There are so many people having a really hard time and so few organizations that can directly affect their lives on a daily basis. VillageCare is a direct-to-client model."
Designers who participated included Betsey Johnson, DKNY, Tracy Reese, and The Blonds.
Hopefully no one who attended was allergic to pollen.
What do U think of the designs?
