Michelle Obama packs a political punch as an advocate for the "Let's Move" campaign designed to promote activity in American youth. She also packs a punch in the tall women's fashion world. Standing almost 5'11" tall, Mrs. Obama regularly shows off her toned arms and shoulders in sleeveless attire, a fresh change from the usually staid First Lady material. She also chooses bright colors, bold jewelry and floral prints, ensuring that she stands out at her husband's side rather than fading into the background. Michelle Obama isn't the only tall woman in the Presidential family - 12 year old Malia is almost as tall as her mother, and it's only a matter of time before the younger Sasha catches up.
