A new official portrait of Michelle Obama, First Lady of the White House has been released.

MICHELLE OBAMA'S MOST INSPIRATIONAL STYLE MOMENTS

The picture, taken by veteran photographer Chuck Kennedy, shows Mrs Obama posing in her sprawling White House home.

After delivering a host of style hits, wearing designers including Tracy Reese, Peter Soronen and her fashion favourite, Jason Wu, the First Lady showed her less formal side, in a long-sleeved navy dress with a single string of pearls.

The smiling shot also shows off her fabulous new fringe, which she recently described as her 'mid life crisis'.

'This is my midlife crisis, the bangs,' Mrs Obama said of her new 'do during an interview on the Rachael Ray show in America last month.

'I couldn’t get a sports car. They won’t let me bungee jump. So instead I cut my bangs here.'

Mrs O's first portrait was taken in 2009, shortly after the presidential inauguration, in the Blue Rooms at the White House.

The first picture, which showed her formal side, saw Michelle channel Audrey Hepburn in a black Michael Kors shift dress, and thick pearl necklace.
