Update: Michelle Obama Got Bangs, & Her Husband Loves Them

mobama
UPDATE: During a speech to supporters yesterday, Barack Obama issued a proclamation regarding one of the most talked-about (style) moments related to the inauguration. He said: "First of all, I love Michelle Obama. And to address the most significant event of this weekend, I love her bangs.... She looks good. She always looks good." Bam. The President has spoken. (NY Mag)
Everyone knows getting bangs is just about the most exciting, wonderful, newsworthy thing a celebrity can do. In fact, we have a special computer set up in our office with a Google news alert for the word "bangs" and every time it goes off, a giant siren starts blaring, and confetti falls from the ceiling. Red alert. Red alert. Presidential bangs.
Our very own FLOTUS is the latest entry in the celebrity bangs book. Like we always say — new term, new hairstyle, right? MObama will be center stage with the president this weekend for his inauguration, so we can hardly blame her for making a trip to the salon (or, more likely, having the salon make a trip to her). Plus, it's her birthday, so this is an extra-special, super-important presidential haircut. That's a technical term.
