This cover has got us wow—ed!

This issue of the New York Times Style Magazine features First Lady Michelle Obama, who has spent the past eight years quietly and confidently changing the course of American history.

Michelle Obama’s feature, “To the First Lady, With Love,” includes four heartfelt and personal thank you letters to the FLOTUS. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Gloria Steinem, Jon Meacham and Rashida Jones contributed their personal letters which all detail specific moments that Obama absolutely inspired them.

In the October 23 issue, the first lady is celebrated in a piece called “The Greats” where the magazine has chosen to honour seven iconic people. Along with Obama, the issue will feature Lady Gaga, Junya Watanabe, Zadie Smith, Kerry James Marshall and several other visionaries.

My anxiety rose and swirled, watching and willing her to be as close to perfection as possible, not for me, because I was already a believer, but for the swaths of America that would rather she stumbled.
