Let's Move with Jimmy Fallon


Official White House Photo by Chuck Kennedy

A new addition to the White House Flickr feed: Mrs. O and Jimmy Fallon in a "Let's Move!" tug of war during a taping for “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon." The accompanying video clip is a must watch:

Over the next three days, Mrs. O will make stops in Iowa, Arkansas, Texas and Florida to celebrate the second anniversary of "Let's Move!" Stay tuned!

Update: Thanks to reader Meg for spotting Mrs. O's top: the lululemon run: switch back long sleeve top in heathered black, available here.

Now there's not disputing it: She looks good in a potato sack. That should give the designers heart attacks. It's not about them but the person inside the clothes.

You forgot to mention that she's wearing Lululemon! Her top is the run: switch back ls (http://shop.lululemon.com/products/clothes-accessories/pack-and-go/Run-Switch-Back-Long-Sleeve)

This is sooooo cool, as Mrs. O and Jimmy said. Way to make the White House come alive!

Well worth watching -Michelle is the perfect combination of brains, humour and hard work towards whatever she undertakes. She is also featured in the recent Prevention magazine.

Here's proof that clothing (And dare we add designers?) is moot. Mrs. O looks great in a potato sack .The optics of the table behind Mrs. O also adds the illusion of thigh-high warrior-woman boots. Very funny.

Top Picture in the Diplomatic Reception Room:
I love how the table top behind Mrs. Obama makes it look like she is wearing
Super Hero Boots!!! Had to do a double take on that one! :)

Great! For the people who are concerned about dignity: The potato sack is in fact a dutch mail bag worn by dutch Royalties too see: http://www.lindamagazine.nl/2012/01/26/prinses-maxima-het-modemeisje/

How cute are the potato sacks with the red, white and blue stripes!!!

Thursday, February 9, 2012 at 8:37 PM | Registered Commenterboazwife

Love how Mrs. O is getting into theatrics! She really plays along and is so cute about it.

These are dutch post bags.

This FLOTUS is something else! I just saw the video and I'm still smiling. I cannot keep up that Kool Aid grin for too long, my Tony Little Gazelle and BodyTrac Rowing Machine awaits. I'm still at it.......keep striking matches and something's bound to catch fire! Our Michelle reminds me of a cartoon that I recently saw on a CrossFit website. It has a Doctor talking to his obviously overweight patient. The Doctor says to the patient, "What fits your busy schedule better, exercising one hour a day or being dead 24 hours a day?" A no brainer!

@Elizabeth, that's a great link! Who knew that a mailbag would make such a cute jacket? But I hope the FLOTUS-bashers don't get on Mrs. O for not using an AMERICAN sack!

I really like her casual outfit and the "antics" performed with Mr. Fallon, but will someone please mention to the White House staff to replace that hideous brassy fireplace accessory...yuck!! Talk about antiquated!
