The White House unveiled Barack Obama's second-term portrait before the inauguration, so it's about time we saw the first lady's official look for the next four years. Like her husband, Michelle Obama took a more casual approach to her new photo -- just one string of pearls this time -- and of course, there are the bangs.

Obama, who was photographed standing in a sleeveless Michael Kors dress four years ago, wore a dark blue and purple dress and sat down for the new portrait. The first lady's much-discussed bangs, apparently the result of a looming mid-life crisis, are front and center.
