is it a bird? is it a plane?

Nope: it’s Michelle Obama on the December cover of DC magazine

“When the first lady first sought to engage the nation’s creative community, she traveled straight to the heart of U.S. artistic endeavors: New York. In May 2009, she met with the country’s cultural elite at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Some argued that visiting one of Manhattan’s headiest outposts was a predictable move. But Mrs. Obama was on a mission. During that closed-door session, she gained inspiration for the White House series on music and dance. … From the first installment of the series, launched a month after the meeting, the jazz, classical, country, Broadway, Latino and civil-rights-focused music and dance events have paired celebrity talent with schoolchildren for daylong workshops and evening performances. The efforts have garnered coast-to-coast coverage. Diplomatic efforts with countries such as Russia have grown from relationships established through these East Wing undertakings.”
