Michelle was joined by students from Girls Inc and Young People's Chorus of NYC to celebrate Saks' commitment to net proceeds of a capsule collection of merchandise.

"As part of the event, Saks unveiled Girls Opportunity Alliance-inspired holiday windows to showcase the importance of championing girls all over the world," the org added.


Michelle looked fabulous

Mom-of-two Michelle has arguably become one of the most important First Lady's in American history after her husband Barack Obama was sworn in in 2009.

Her legacy will be detailed along with the personal and political lives of Betty Ford (Michelle Pfeiffer) and Eleanor Roosevelt (Gillian Anderson) in new Showtime series, The First Lady.

The series will trace "their journeys to Washington through an enlightening intimacy".

Speaking to EW about her role as Michelle, Viola Davis – who is also an executive producer on the show – revealed that she spoke with Michelle and read her memoir, Becoming, before signing on to the anthology series.

"I feel very protective of Michelle," she said. "It's our job as actors not to judge whoever we are portraying, but I ended up thinking she's just dope."

Other cast members joining the star-studded drama include Aaron Eckhart, who stars as President Gerald Ford, and Dakota Fanning as first daughter Susan Ford. Kiefer Sutherland will star alongside Gillian as President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
