Each week Silkarmour chooses an influential woman and will suggest an outfit inspired by her.
The second woman of this series is Michelle Obama, a Harvard graduate who balances her commitments as the First Lady of the United States, a wife and mother of two teenagers with promoting education for young girls and serving as a role model for women world-wide.
Michelle always looks chic and frequently wears colourful clothes with an empowered confidence we can all aspire to.
The saying that behind every great man there is a great woman holds true for the Obama power couple: following her graduation from Harvard Law School, Michelle joined the Chicago office of the law firm Sidley Austin and was asked to mentor a summer intern named Barack Obama. We are assured that the future Mrs Obama did reject the romantic advances of the future Mr President until the end of their professional relationship.
Today Michelle is heavily involved in different charity organisations, with a heavy focus on equal rights to education. This year she launched the association "Let Girls Learn" to open the doors of education for girls around the world.
