Michelle Obama, one of the most powerful personalities, has time and again proved that she will continue to win hearts and lives with her big beautiful smile. She might not be behind the claustrophobic walls of the White House but she definitely is living the time of her life along with former President and husband Barack Obama. She recently graced the cover of Elle magazine wearing a black leather corset, her charisma and her million dollar smile. Needless to say, the inside story is just as explosive!

For the uninitiated, the 54-year-old is currently keeping herself on her toes promoting her new memoir, Becoming, which debuts today. For this she earned her part of $65 million in advance and had a sit-down interview with TV mogul, Oprah for an explosive interview. Donning a $2,400 worth leather corset along with a ruffled $4,900 skirt and a $1,350 blouse, all from Dior, Michelle looked chic and happy. Check out some of the coolest pictures of Michelle Obama from her intriguing photoshoot with Elle.

Living in the White House for eight years, @MichelleObama had staffers providing everything she could have possibly needed, except for time. "What I came to realize is that there was absolutely no time to reflect in the White House,” she tells @oprah for ELLE’s cover interview. “We moved at such a breakneck pace from the moment we walked in those doors until the moment we left. It was day in and day out because we, Barack and I, really felt like we had an obligation to get a lot done.”⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Now, with time to process two terms in office—a historic run of accomplishments and struggles—Obama has released her highly anticipated memoir, “Becoming.” Ahead of her book release, the former FLOTUS gets real about her marriage to Barack, the threats made against her children, and life after the White House.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ELLE December 2018 credits:⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Editor-in-chief: @ninagarcia⁣⁣⁣⁣ Photographer: @millermobley⁣⁣ Stylist: @meredithkoop⁣⁣ Hair: @yenedamtew⁣⁣ Makeup: @carlraymua⁣⁣ Wearing: @Dior Chief photography director: @alixbcampbell

@MichelleObama knows you think she and #BarackObama are #RelationshipGoals, but she insists, “marriage is hard.” During a candid conversation with @oprah for ELLE’s December issue, Michelle reveals she and Barack underwent marriage counseling. ⁣ ⁣ “You go because you think the counselor is going to help you make your case against the other person. 'Would you tell him about himself?!' And lo and behold, counseling wasn’t that at all. It was about me exploring my sense of happiness."

@MichelleObama on embracing vulnerability: “I feel vulnerable all the time. And I had to learn how to express that to my husband, to tap into those parts of me that missed him—and the sadness that came from that—so that he could understand. It was an important part of my journey of becoming. Understanding how to become us." #MichelleObama talks her marriage to #BarackObama, her new memoir #Becoming, and why she still feels optimistic about America in our December 2018 cover story.

@MichelleObama says she will "never forgive" Donald Trump for spreading the birther conspiracy against #BarackObama. “For [Trump] it was a game,” she tells @oprah for ELLE’s December issue. “But the threats that you face as the commander in chief are real. To think that some crazed person might be ginned up to think my husband was a threat to the country’s security; and to know that my children, every day, had to go to a school, and soccer games, parties, and travel. It was reckless, it put my family in danger, and it wasn’t true." Link in bio for more from our cover story.

Things have changed since the Obamas moved out of the White House. From living in the White House for around eight years to settling down in Washington DC's exclusive Kalorama neighbourhood in a house worth $8.1 million, a relaxed and retired life is a good life. In her interview, she recalled what it was like when the Obamas moved out of the White House.

She said, "...I made myself toast. Cheese toast," and added, "Then I took my toast and I walked out into my backyard. I sat on the stoop, and there were dogs barking in the distance, and I realized Bo and Sunny had really never heard neighbour dogs. They're like, 'What's that?' And I'm like, 'Yep, we're in the real world now, fellas.' Stay tuned for the full interview!
