Thank you so much for offering this book.

This book does a great job in giving you insights on the First Lady's style of dress,hair and makeup.

On and on she goes about make-up and hair regimens; all very tedious to this feminist.

I purchased this book because I am so proud of Mrs. Obama as the First Lady. She is an inspiration to me and I hope that I can share this book with young (at risk) teens to give them encouragement to believe in themselves. Thank you so much for offering this book.

Frankly, I wasn't interested in the story itself. I love Mrs. Obama's style, and I wanted to copy some of her looks. These fantastic color pictures allow me to do just that. I wasn't so interested in the hair, nails, and make up tips, but that is part of her style, so it was fair to include them in the book.

This is a very well done book about Michelle Obama's style. She is in a class all by herself. Mrs. Obama is a fresh breath of inspiration for all women who strive to balance family, career, life, and self. She let's us know that you too can have a life while looking stylish too. Thank you Mikki Taylor for sharing Mrs. Obama's style with us through this fantastic book. This book is a great tool that lets women realize we can have it all and finding our own signature styles is a part of the journey.

The book jacket cover stays true to its promised of 'class' contents...The book jacket cover is a winner .The book contents show Mrs Michelle Obama being able to show style while not allowing her attention to style to take away her thoughts and mannerisms from the importance of her position as "1st Lady".... The author, Mikki Taylor's had many "Mikki-isms"(guides in managing personal styles) adding to the excellence of the book....abj

Format: Hardcover
I hate it when authors insert themselves into a book and this author does it extensively. She is an editor-at- large of Essence magazine and indeed, the book reads like a magazine. There are photos & commentary about Michelle Obama including her clothing, her hair, her attitude, her workouts, etc but then in each section, there's extensive talk from the author about how you can pull off something similar. On and on she goes about make-up and hair regimens; all very tedious to this feminist. When discussing workouts the author detailed special exercises by age group; it ended with hints for those in their fifties. I guess us sixty-somethings might as well forget it. I was somewhat surprised that the book was so nonchalant about the First Lady straightening her hair; no one seems to want to discuss that. What happened to the African-American woman with a natural?

Great book. Lots of colorful pictures and information about the first Lady. I would recommend this book to anyone, who
loves reading and looking at history in a different way. It also gives you ideas about how to dress for success.
