While in the White House, she had made many headlines for her style choices and she finally spilled all the details. During the event, Obama addressed the choices behind her outfits as the first lady.

Her eight years as the first lady, saw Obama establish herself as a powerful influence in fashion. The dresses she wore would often sell out hours after she wore it.

Obama revealed, "I did know that my clothes were making a statement, I knew that was the case. 'So we decided why don't we use this platform to uplift some young new designers who normally wouldn't get this kind of attention, because you can change their lives, which is one of the reasons why we chose Jason Wu for my inaugural gown."

She has clearly continued her fashionable trend. Her stunning outfit for the last stop was not the only head-turning outfit donned by the mum-of-two.

Earlier in her book tour, she stunned fans by donning a custom white satin tuxedo and designer caged booties. 

“If people flipped through a magazine primarily to see the clothes I was wearing, I hoped they’d also see the military spouse standing next to me or read what I had to say about children’s health,”  said Michelle when asked about her style once.
