Barack & Michelle Obama Unveil Their Official Portraits — Leaving Twitter With A LOT Of Feelings!

obamas unveil portraits

So beautiful!!

Barack and Michelle Obama have officially revealed the portraits commemorating their time as President and First Lady of the United States — and it just makes us miss them even more. *Wails loudly*

These portraits have been the most anticipated presidential/FLOTUS paintings, mainly due to the artists the Obamas tapped to complete the pieces. For his portrait, the former Commander-In-Chief selected queer, black artist Kehinde Wiley to undertake capturing his likeness. The Yale University-trained painter is the first African-American artist to take on an official presidential portrait for the National Portrait Gallery.

Leave it to Obama to make history with his artist choice. AH-Mazing!!

Unsurprisingly, 44 was blown away by Wiley's work, who painted the Hawaii-born politician sitting against a colorful backdrop. During his speech at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, Barack noted:

Just like during her visit to Paris, she gifted us with another spectacular dress, this time a deep green lace number with long sleeves and a scalloped layer. What a lush, gorgeous color on her!

She paired the dress with a cream clutch and open-toe sandals, with her hair holding an extra amount of bounce!

Seriously, those curls have maybe never been shinier!

Get a closer look in the gallery (above)!

Elizabeth Hurley Fluffs Up Her Look For The Portrait Gala Fundraiser! Bill Clinton Rumors Be Darned!

Elizabeth Hurley attends an art fundraiser in London!

Elizabeth Hurley may have been involved in some SRSLY scandalous rumors of late, but that hasn’t stopped her from living her life!

The falsely accused Bill Clinton sex partner attended the Portrait Gala 2014: Collecting to Inspire fundraiser at the National Portrait Gallery in London on Tuesday, and was sure to dress for the occasion!

Miz Hurley wore a floor-length gown featuring ring details at the neckline, which she fluffed up with a fuzzy white shawl.

While we get the glamorous appeal she was going for, we’re not really loving the dress on her. Especially when it was wrinkled and styled with a metallic gold clutch!

She still looked beautiful, though!

Kate Middleton Debuts Fancier & Sparklier New Look At The National Portrait Gallery

Longer hemline? Check. Sparklier jewels? CHECK.

This must be the new Kate Middleton look as decreed by the Queen herself!

Which is almost exactly like the old Kate Middleton look except for that GIANT Nizam of Hyderabad diamond necklace on loan from Queen Elizabeth II!

Those diamonds are not messing around!!!

The Duchess wore the impressive piece to the National Portrait Gallery today for her first official outing of 2014, but slightly tempered the ostentatiousness of the jewels by repeating a dark blue Jenny Packham off-the-shoulder gown that she wore back in October.

Borrowed jewels, recycled gown…it's like she's not even royalty! LOLz!

What do U make of Kate's fancy makeover???

Kate Middleton Is A Work Of Art At The National Portrait Gallery In London

Kate Middleton morphs into a Disney princess at the National Portrait Gallery

Observe that preternatural grace, that poise!

There's just no denying at this point that Kate Middleton is a real life Disney princess!

She even rocked that half-up/half-down hairdo Belle was so fond of during a visit to The National Portrait Gallery in London on Wednesday.

The Duchess attended a reception for The Art Room charity looking like a work of art herself in a powder blue, empire-waisted Emilia Wickstead dress and gray suede Rupert Sanderson heels.

How can one person always look so naturally elegant and perfect?

What kind of voodoo is this?!

We just can't wait until July when the baby is born and Prince William presents him or her to the world on the Buckingham Palace balcony, like Rafiki did with Simba on that cliff in The Lion King.

That would be BOSS.
