The First Lady and Mrs. Robinson fashioned clothes from their personal wardrobes for the shoot. ESSENCE magazine Beauty & Cover Director Mikki Taylor explains: “We wanted to portray a portrait to remember of mother and daughter, the warmth and the love between them, and capture the image of spring and joy. They each have their own personal style that expresses the season—the layering and the bright colors."
The First Lady admitted that decorating the grounds is still a work in progress. With such a keen eye, Mrs. Obama is sure to add her own personal style to the White House.
