Michelle Obama came into the White House with great expectations. On the eve of the 2009 inauguration, which also happened to be Martin Luther King Day, The New York Times said Obama had “power to influence the nation’s sense of identity, its fashion trends, its charitable causes and its perceptions of black women and their families.” She rose to the occasion.

Beyond being the country’s first black first lady, Michelle Obama brought other unique and powerful qualities to the symbolic role. She projected confidence, a modern sensibility, and approachability. Undoubtedly knowing the press would report on her every outfit, Michelle used her fashion choices to express her values.

“Her legacy is all about style and substance,” said Kate Betts, author of 2011’s Everyday Icon: Michelle Obama and the Power of Style. “She understood right away that she could use style to transmit a message of confidence and strength to young women who were watching her, young women who understood that Michelle Obama had worked hard and used her brain to get to a place very few people thought she could get. Her style is a way of standing out, letting people know what she stands for.”

She projected confidence, a modern sensibility, and approachability.

Using her fashion to communicate sometimes meant choosing an unknown designer over a safer mainstream choice for major events. She traded her heels for Converse sneakers so she could garden or jog across the White House’s South Lawn during a Let’s Move! event. She wore off-the-rack designs from places like J.Crew and H&M for press appearances, which made her more accessible to everyday Americans. “She wanted young women to see that being first lady was attainable, something you could work for and achieve,” Betts explained. “It was no longer this mythical, inaccessible post. And she also wanted to use her position to speak about the things that matter most to her, like health, education, healthy eating, and supporting young girls.”

One of Obama’s favorite designers, Naeem Khan, agreed that her approach to fashion made her relatable: “She is so normal when it comes to wearing what she wears. She can go from wearing J.Crew to dressed in my things, which are super glamorous.” Khan pointed out that as first lady, she didn’t go for a name itself, but instead for what she liked. “It’s important how she has actually cultivated and put the designers in front.”

Nothing Michelle Obama does is an accident, she told us during an interview at the White House in October. Speaking about her television appearances, the first lady said, “We always know why we do Ellen and the message points we’re trying to get out. The fun part is just the hook, but if you really listen to all the appearances, if you follow closely, there’s an underlying message and it’s powerful how it actually resonates, even through the jokes.”

We can assume that this thoughtful approach applies to the first lady’s fashion choices, too — she’s not the type to choose a dress simply because she thinks it’s pretty. With each designer, brand, or style she chose, Obama sent a message, which makes it hard to choose her most important looks. But we’ve tried, selecting six that represent how she made her mark on the fashion world and American culture. Now let’s look back at the most powerful messages Michelle Obama sent through her style these past eight years.

Jason Wu at the Inaugural Ball, January 2009

The Moment: The Obamas’ first Inaugural Ball. After appearing on stage, the couple danced to a rendition of Etta James’s “At Last” performed by Beyoncé Knowles.

The Outfit: A one-shouldered white silk chiffon gown embellished with organza flowers and Swarovski crystals.

The Designer: Jason Wu, then 26 years old and based in NYC. Relatively unknown at the time, he had no idea the new first lady had chosen his design until he saw it on television.

The Impact: Hope was the message of the 2008 Obama campaign, and this white gown — reminiscent of a wedding dress — echoed it perfectly. Young and proud, the Obamas looked like a newly married couple ready to stick it out for better and for worse in the White House. It made them relatable and also acted as a symbol for America’s desire for a fresh start.

Just like American voters took a risk on relative newcomer Barack Obama, Michelle Obama chose to elevate Jason Wu with her inaugural gown, straying from first lady standbys like Oscar de la Renta (worn by both Hillary Clinton and Laura Bush at inaugural balls). Instead, Obama gave new faces a chance throughout her time as first lady. “Sophie Theallet, Thakoon Panichgul, Isabel Toledo, Jason Wu — none of these designers were well-known globally,” Betts explained. “She really reached out to a diverse group of talent and gave them an incredible global platform. No other first lady in my memory has done so much to support young designers.”

Naeem Khan at the First State Dinner, November 2009

The Moment: The Obamas’ first state dinner, thrown for India’s prime minister. The evening offered the first lady a chance to define her formal style.

The Outfit: A gold strapless dress with a print inspired by Andy Warhol.

The Designer: Naeem Khan, 50 years old at the time and an Indian immigrant to America. Khan moved from India to NYC when he was 20 and worked for Halston. While he had enjoyed success in the fashion industry, the state dinner made him a household name. “I was actually super shocked,” he recalled. “It was just before Thanksgiving. The whole thing went viral. It went so global, it was crazy.”

The Impact: This dress signaled Michelle Obama’s desire to be a modern first lady. It had a glittering Andy Warhol-inspired print. It showed off her arms and hugged her figure. She wasn’t going to hide behind taffeta.

Her choice of designer was also significant. “Me being an Indian-American designer, it was politically important,” Khan noted. “There is a great interaction between the first lady and the designer to send the message.” Khan explained that he used the opportunity to blend the best of India and America. “The shape of the dress was super simple. It was totally American.” But for the embroidery, he employed a traditional Indian technique. “When I was a little boy, I would go up to my grandfather’s factories and they used to make sequins of 24-karat gold and sterling silver by hand. So I embroidered the poppies with those techniques that were going around India for hundreds of years.”

Converse at Let’s Move! Event, May 2010

Image Source: Getty / Tim Sloan

The Moment: Shortly after launching her Let’s Move! campaign in January 2010, the first lady kicked off the South Lawn series by exercising with local school children at the White House to promote physical activity.

The Outfit: A sleeveless printed top, loose black pants, and Converse sneakers.

The Designer: Converse sneakers with a patent leather flair.

The Impact: By trading the traditional pumps for a pair of Converse, Obama used her fashion choices to get her message across. For one, Converse is an American brand, as a subsidiary of Nike.

Betts recalled a similar moment when the first lady actually kicked off her shoes during a healthy-living event in 2009. “To see the first lady running barefoot across the South Lawn, engaging in this very energetic way, was wonderful,” she recalled. “It wasn’t about what she was wearing so much as it was about her attitude and her energy and her charisma. That to me is style.”

“It wasn’t about what she was wearing so much as it was about her attitude and her energy and her charisma.”

It’s those moments that Michelle believes will define her legacy. When we asked, “What will be the lasting image of your time as first lady?” she replied, “It will probably be me doing push-ups, sit-ups. It will be me in some physical form, dancing, jumping, laughing, surrounded by kids.” Obama changed the game by flooding popular culture with images of a first lady we had never seen before.

Thom Browne Coat With a J.Crew Belt at Inauguration Day, January 2013

Image Source: Getty / Chip Somodevilla

The Moment: President Obama’s swearing in for his second presidential term.

The Outfit: A custom fit-and-flare coat from Thom Browne belted with a sparkly find from J.Crew.

The Designer: Thom Browne, 47 at the time and an American menswear-turned-womenswear designer based in New York. Also, J.Crew, the all-American retail store.

The Impact: By pairing a bespoke designer coat with an accessory most Americans could get at their local mall, Michelle Obama signaled that she didn’t fit into a simple box. She was letting her sense of style, not dedication to high-end fashion labels, drive her fashion choices.

If you can find something in common with the first lady, you might be more willing to listen to what she has to say.

Of course, there was also a political advantage to choosing an accessible brand. As Betts points out in her book, Obama’s style changed significantly during the 2008 presidential campaign. She retired the power suits from her time as a healthcare executive and lawyer and instead began to favor everyday “mom” labels. While this was surely a calculated move, it also made her more relatable to modern American young women. She chose brands like J.Crew and H&M that many of us have in our closets. If you can find something in common with the first lady, you might be more willing to listen to what she has to say.

Tracy Reese at the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington, August 2013

Image Source: Getty / Alex Wong

The Moment: A ceremony to commemorate 50 years since Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington and “I Have a Dream” speech.

The Outfit: A flared, sleeveless black dress with large scarlet flowers with beaded centers.

The Designer: Tracy Reese, 49 at the time and a successful American designer based in New York. Known for her use of colors and graphics, Reese is one of the many black designers worn by Michelle Obama.

The Impact: Michelle Obama chose a black designer for the important civil rights anniversary. The print was bold and elegant, just like Obama, and allowed her to stand out against the backdrop of the Lincoln Memorial. The juxtaposition of the gray statue of the president who emancipated American slaves with the vibrancy of the first lady’s dress gave the impression of bringing history to life.

Narciso Rodriguez at State of the Union, January 2016

Image Source: Getty / Mark Wilson

The Moment: President Obama’s final State of the Union address to Congress.

The Outfit: A sleeveless wool crepe marigold dress.

The Designer: Narciso Rodriguez, then 54, a Cuban-American designer who famously designed the dress Carolyn Bessette wore to marry John F. Kennedy Jr.

The Impact: Standing out in a sea of dark suits, Obama shined in marigold. At the lectern, her husband said he had a sunny outlook for America, and the first lady backed that message of hope with her fashion. She also wore Narciso Rodriguez at Barack Obama’s election night victory event in 2008 and his first address to a joint session of Congress in 2009. The designer’s Cuban roots helped highlight the president’s work reestablishing diplomatic relationships with the country, potentially an important moment in his legacy.

Image Source: Getty / Saul Loeb

The dress also showed off Obama’s much talked-about feature: her arms. In 2009, when the first lady wore a sleeveless dress to the same occasion, the choice got much attention. The New York Times wrote: “It is February and Washington is freezing, but in appearance after appearance, the first lady displays her long, muscular arms. She is sleeveless on the cover of the new Vogue, she was sleeveless when she discussed menus on Sunday in the White House kitchen, and last night she was sleeveless again, in the House chamber for her husband’s first address to Congress. (All of the other women in the room seemed to be wearing long sleeves; a few even wore turtlenecks).” Fast-forward to 2016: Michelle hadn’t given into convention, and it was now no big scandal to see some arm skin in Congress.

Michelle Obama’s Lasting Legacy

Michelle Obama’s style choices will go down as an important part of her legacy. She used clothes to express confidence. “She gave women permission to dress for themselves, to be feminine and powerful at once,” Betts acknowledged. As one of the most photographed women in the world, she also demonstrated the power of style to draw attention to issues important to her. As Betts concluded: “She showed us that style is about much more than what we wear — it’s about how we present ourselves, what we say, what we stand for.”

“She gave women permission to dress for themselves, to be feminine and powerful at once.”

Naeem Khan thinks she stands up to other political fashion icons. “Michelle Obama is up there. She is more than Jackie Kennedy.” He goes on: “I feel that Mrs. Obama had so many more resources than Jackie did. Jackie was wearing two designers, three designers. Mrs. Obama has access to the internet and more. The global power that she has and the impressions she’s made with fashion are far more impactful.

lyrics: Steffany Gretzinger – Out Of Hiding (Father’s Song)

Come out of hiding You’Re safe here with Me
There’s no need to cover what I already see
You’ve got your reasons, but I hold your peace

You’ve been on lockdown, but i hold the key

‘Cause I loved you before you knew what was love
I saw it all, still I chose the cross
You were the one that I was thinking of
When I rose from the grave
Now rid of the shackles, My victory is yours
I tore the veil for you to come close
There’s no reason to stand at a distance anymore
You’re not far from home

I’ll be your lighthouse when you’re lost at sea
I will illuminate everything
No need to be frightened by intimacy
Just throw off your fear and come running to me

chrous

Cause I loved you before you knew what was love
I saw it all, still I chose the cross
You were the one that I was thinking of
When I rose from the grave
Now rid of the shackles, My victory is yours
I tore the veil for you to come close
There’s no reason to stand at a distance anymore
You’re not far from home

You’re not far from home keep on coming

Oh as you run, what hindered love
Will only become part of the story 4x

baby, You’re almost home now
Please don’t quit now
You’re almost home to Me
Baby, you’re almost home now
Please don’t quit now
You’re almost home to Me

Drake – The Motto (Remix) Lyrics

[Drake:]
I’m the fuckin’ man, you don’t get it do ya?
Type of money everybody acting like they knew ya
Go Uptown, New York City bitch
Some Spanish girls love me like I’m Aventura
Tell Uncle Luke I’m out in Miami too
Clubbing hard, fuckin’ women there ain’t much to do

Wrist blang, got a condo up in Biscayne
Still getting brain from a thang, ain’t shit changed
How you feel? how you feel? how you feel?
Twenty five sittin’ on 25 mil uh
I’m in the building and I’m feeling myself
Rest in peace Mac Dre, I’mma do it for the Bay, okay
Getting paid we’ll holler whenever that stop
My team good, we don’t really need a mascot
Tell Tune “light one, pass it like a relay”
YMCMB you niggas more YMCA
Me, Franny, Marley Marl at the crib-o
Shout goes out to Niko, J and Chubbs, shout to Gibbo
We got Santa Margarita by the liter
She know even if I’m fucking with her, I don’t really need her
Aoh, that’s how you feel man?
That’s really how you feel?
‘Cause the pimpin’ ice cold, all these bitches wanna chill
I mean maybe she won’t
Then again maybe she will
I can almost guarantee she know the deal,
Real nigga what’s up?

[Drake:]
Now she want a photo
You already know though
You only live once: that’s the motto nigga YOLO and
We bout it every day, every day, every day
Like we sittin’ on the bench, nigga we don’t really play
Every day, every day, fuck what anybody say
Can’t see ’em ’cause the money in the way
Real nigga what’s up?

[Lil Wayne:]
One, time fuck one time
I’m calling niggas out like the umpire
Seven, grams in the blunt
Almost drowned in her pussy so I swam to her butt
It’s Eastside, we in this bitch
Wish a nigga would like a tree in this bitch
And if a leaf fall put some weed in that bitch
That’s my MO add a B to that shit
I’m fucked-up, tore-down
I’m twisted: door knob
Talk stupid, off with your head!
Nigga money talks and Mr Ed! Yea!
I’m so Young Money got a drum on the gun
Energizer bunny
Funny how honey ain’t sweet like sugar
Ain’t shit sweet niggas on the street like hookers
I tongue kiss her other tongue
Skeet skeet skeet: water gun
Oh my God, Becky, look at her butt! Tunechi

[Drake:]
Now she want a photo
You already know though
You only live once: that’s the motto nigga YOLO and
We bout it every day, every day, every day
Like we sitting on the bench, nigga we don’t really play
Every day, every day, fuck what anybody say
Can’t see ’em ’cause the money in the way
Real nigga what’s up

[Tyga:]
T Raw, skinny nigga big balls
Fuck around get dragged, Ru Paul
You a funny little nigga, Duval
Out of this world, Total Recall
Call a bitch raw dick let her see-saw
Sorta like a donkey like an ass nigga he-haw
Riding round in the ‘rari with the top off
While you in the window man I’m probably on my next car
Ay! Mighty duck with the ice on
Real L.A. nigga trucks with the gun drawn
Drawing on your face you a clown jack in the box
Boy that’s your bop she my new poom poom star
Stars in the back and my homies they don’t act
Acting brand new fuck her never call her back
Matt Forte got the bitch running back
Man that’s the motto you ain’t know it’s like that?

[Drake:]
Now she want a photo
You already know though
You only live once: that’s the motto nigga YOLO and
We bout it every day, every day, every day
Like we sitting on the bench, nigga we don’t really play
Every day, every day, fuck what anybody say
Can’t see ’em ’cause the money in the way
Real nigga what’s up what’s up what’s up
Real nigga what’s up what’s up what’s up
Real nigga what’s up what’s up what’s up

Drake – Talk Is Cheap Lyrics

[Drake (Static Major):]
(Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah)
Yeah, hey there, help me
I’ve been away too long and I know you’d agree
I’m so tired, but I can’t sleep
My door’s open and that don’t mean leave
Know what I mean?

[Aaliyah (Drake):]
Don’t let me fool yah
Boy, you don’t know me (oh shit)
Suppose I said I want you
This very moment
Come here and let me school yah
This is how it’s done
Boy, you gotta push my buttons
The ones that turn me on, turn me on
Turn me on, turn me on
Turn me on, turn me on
Turn me on, turn me on

[Static Major:]
Don’t rush, but don’t wait
Don’t talk ’cause it’s gettin’ late
Sit right here, next to me
What’s up? Your talk is cheap

[Aaliyah:]
Don’t let me fool yah
Boy, you don’t know me
Suppose I said I want you
This very moment
Come here and let me school yah
This is how it’s done
Boy, you gotta push my buttons
The ones that turn me on, turn me on
Turn me on, turn me on
Turn me on, turn me on

[Drake:]
You know I gotta ask, what’s up with the friends that you bring?
Know you got some other cool friends that you never bring
New stories for you every time the phone ring
They don’t understand, girl if anything you’re everything
Oh lord, good lord, smoke a little, then record
You know Papi on the vocals, 40 on the boards
Call me when you feel inspired, never when you’re bored
And have a real conversation with your fuckin’ boy
With the fuckin’ man, Mr. Lover-Lover-Man
How come everything is on the other hand?
How come you ain’t never busy when I’m busy
But the moment that I’m free you always end up with some other plans?
How you make a good dude wait so long?
I don’t understand why, that’s some girl shit
And what you doin’ in the bedroom with your clothes on?
I want you wearin’ what you came into the world with

[Aaliyah (Static Major):]
(This is your chance to prove that you got the skill)
Don’t let me fool yah
Boy, you don’t know me
Suppose I said I want you
This very moment
(You said you could give me the chills)
Come here and let me school yah
This is how it’s done
(Well it’s all up to you)
Boy you gotta push my buttons
(But you don’t know what to do)
The ones that turn me on, turn me on

[Aaliyah (Static Major):]
Turn me on, turn me on
Turn me on, turn me on
(Hey, woo!
Girl this very, very moment, yeah
Yeah, yeah)

She keep giving me looks
She keep giving me looks
I need you right here beside me
If you oblige me, I’ll hang it up, and I’ll never come out of retirement
You should just sleep on it, you shouldn’t doubt me
It would be different without me
What is it without me
Don’t go do nothing without me
This is a blessing, mashallah, wallahi
I swear my life story’s better than stories they telling about me
They got it twisted
Ride the pipe like a bike, make sure you’re going the distance
And if he wasn’t with it, then why were you with him?
Maybe you just had to realize
That knowing the difference can make all the difference
She wanna ride me that adanunana
Yeah she keep giving me looks
