That darn wind can always get the best of us. Especially when you’re wearing a flowing skirt.
Such was the case when First Lady Michelle Obama was making her way off and onto Air Force One in Houston, Texas this week. A strong wind gust caught the Obamas off guard, blowing the First Lady’s skirt in the air. Luckily, President Obama was there to save the day and avoid a First Lady ‘Marilyn Monroe moment.’
The Obamas were on their way to Austin to visit the Lyndon B. Johnson Presidential Library where POTUS delivered the keynote speech to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
Mrs. O wore a blue and black striped full skirt with a cream top and white bolero.
The First couple capped off their week with a date night in New York City where they watched A Raisin in the Sun on Broadway, starring Denzel Washington, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, Sophie Okonedo, Anika Noni Rose, Sean Patrick Thomas and David Cromer. The president and Mrs. Obama went backstage to greet the actors at intermission, reports the Associated Press.
