The First Lady wore a sleek black Michael Kors
gown cinched with a Peter Soronen corset and accented with Loree Rodkin diamonds to accept an award from Time magazine
in New York City. "I never imagined that I would be in a
position to be a role model for girls around the globe. Girls who look
at me and see something more for themselves, more than society expects of them," Obama said at the event.
