Michelle Obama

You must be doing a good job as First Lady when the public's biggest complaint is that you wear too many sleeveless dresses. Michelle Obama made headlines early in her first term as First Lady for exposing her arms in her official White House portrait and on numerous public appearances. All arms aside, Mrs. Obama was born Michelle Robinson before attending Princeton for her Bachelor of Arts. Her and Barack met while working at a law firm and their first date was to the Spike Lee movie "Do the Right Thing".
