She might have earned the title 'First Lady of Fashion' with her impeccable dress sense but even Michelle Obama at times seeks inspiration from pop stars.
The US First Lady was seen sporting a Rihanna inspired hairstyle at the recent celebrity-studded Time 100 gala where she was a keynote speaker.
Michelle put up her hair to look as if it had been cut into a pixie crop, with a sweeping fringe, very like that of the 'Umbrella' singer, reported Daily Mail on line.
The gala honours the 100 most influential people in the world chosen by the magazine for its annual list and Michelle featured prominently in the list along with her husband US President Barack Obama.
The sleek hairdo was the perfect complement to the First Lady's simple long black fitted evening gown, accessorised with a fashionable clutch of jet bead necklaces.
