Michelle Obama, 56, stunned on the “One World: Together At Home” global special! The former first lady rocked her natural curls as she shared an inspirational message alongside Laura Bush, 73. “Laura and I want to express our overwhelming gratitude to the medical professionals, first responders and so many others on the front lines risking their lives on our behalf,” Michelle said in her segment, showing off her chic shoulder length cut and gorgeous volume. “The coming days will not be easy. But this global family of ours is strong. We will continue to be here for one another, and we will get through this crisis together,” she continued. The Becoming author kept her style simple in a bright blue top and diamond earrings, opting for a natural makeup look that highlighted her picture-perfect complexion.
“Over the years, Laura and I have traveled across this country and around the world. And we’ve had the profound privilege of getting to know you and your families. Your hopes, your struggles, and your triumphs,” Michelle continued in her incredibly moving speech, echoing the theme in her later tweet. “Thank you to all the essential workers who are getting up every day and risking their lives on our behalf. @LauraWBush and I were honored to show our support for their heroic efforts during tonight’s @GlblCtzn’s One World: #TogetherAtHome Special,” Michelle posted.
Laura also took the opportunity to share an uplifting message during this difficult time. “Michelle and I are thrilled to join you in your homes for this special program,” the Spoken from the Heart author began. “The spirit and courage of the American people is most evident in times of crisis. And during this difficult period of physical separation, we’ve never been closer. Not just in our brave country, but tonight we stand with the people of the world,” she continued, going on to express her gratitude to those working hard on the front lines.
