The First Lady and her mom Marian Robinson will appear on the May cover of Essence magazine. Once again, went for an affordable all-American brand. The First Lady posed with her mother Marian Robinson in a $126.75 Talbots‘ rose print silk dress.
Interviewed by Essence in the first lady’s East Wing office at about a month after the Inauguration, the mother-daughter team discuss family, life in the White House and the importance of good role models. Robinson, 71, says her role model is her daughter:
“Michelle has always been Michelle. And she has always accomplished whatever it was she set out to accomplish,” Robinson says in the interview, which is not yet posted online. “I have always looked up to Michelle because she has been able to do things that I couldn’t do emotionally, psychologically or physically. I think she is amazing.”
