What about those FIRST LADIES? Here's some interesting first lady trivia (at least it was interesting to me).
**George Washington’s wife, Martha Washington, was the first to be given the title “lady” by the press, as in “Lady Washington,” and the first wife of a president to appear on U.S. postage stamp.
**John Adams’ wife, Abigail Adams, urged her husband to “remember the ladies” when he was writing the nation’s Declaration of Independence in 1776. She also was the first woman to be both a president’s wife and the mother of a president, and the first to live in the White House.
**Abraham Lincoln’s wife, Mary Lincoln, was the first to hold séances in the White House, to be attacked in the press for lavish purchases during wartime and to fight for the abolition of slavery.
**Warren G. Harding’s wife, Florence Harding, was first first lady to vote, fly in an airplane, operate a movie camera, own a radio, and invite movie stars to White House. She also was accused of poisoning her husband, who died during his third year in office.
**Barack Obama's wife, Michelle Obama, is the first First Lady to have given birth in the 21st century.

She definitely knows how to dress for her body shape. I love style stalking her!
