I’m a great admirer of Madame Obama, I just prefer her without bangs because it doesn’t cover her face. But if she wanted to do it for her fiftieth birthday then I like it.
––Karl Lagerfeld, always good for an offensive soundbite, is backing off his previous comment that Michelle Obama’s bangs make her look like a news anchor. In France, that’s apparently an insult. Krazy Karl hit up the French news channel La Chaine Info, found his manners, and thwarted the world’s first hairdo-related international incident. (Except he got her age wrong: she’s 49.)

Our First Lady, everyone. Michelle Obama dropped by “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” last night to show off her dancing skills and raise awareness for her “Let’s Move!” campaign. Love this — love her – so hard.
“This is my midlife crisis, the bangs. I couldn’t get a sports car. They won’t let me bungee-jump. So instead, I cut my bangs.”
–Michelle Obama has a “Stars: they’re just like us!” moment on “The Rachael Ray Show,” revealing that, like millions of women before her, she decided to cut her bangs on her 49th birthday, in the midst of a midlife crisis. Her sassy new do appears in her latest official White House portrait, shown above. As someone who has made some really terrible hair decisions as a result of various existential crises (I once got an impulse pixie cut at a salon called “The Hack And Wack”), I applaud her restraint, and I think she looks great.

The fragrance, inspired by “the softness of baby skin, the freshness of baby breath, a mother’s sweet hug, [and] the first smile” will contain notes of citrus, honey, and melon. Now I’m hungry. Not for babies. [BuzzFeed]

We’ve long been a fan of quirky, sort of out-there American designer Thom Browne, so it’s pretty great to see him get pop culture recognition — on the presidential inauguration stage, no less. The outrageous sportswear designer has been a fan of putting models dressed as lobsters on the runway in the past, but is versatile enough to design clothes that the FLOTUS loves, too. Take a look through his most recent collection, and tell us if you’d wear Thom Browne, too.
