During Sunday night's reception with suporters, President Barack Obama addressed one of the most talked about subjects of 2013's inaugural weekend, his wife's new haircut.
"First of all, I love Michelle Obama," the President began. "And to address the most significant event of this weekend, I love her bangs."
The first lady debuted the new hair style on her birthday, Jan. 17 via a photo tweeted from her office's new handle @FLOTUS, prompting reactions from all ends of the Twittersphere.
The new look came in perfect time for the inauguration festivities which began Sunday with the President's swearing in ceremony.
Michelle's flirty bangs were, like the rest of herfashion statements, well received by everyone because, like the president said, "She looks good. She always looks good."
