Sarah Jessica Parker. First Lady Michelle Obama. Kerry Washington.
How in the world did Glamour get three of the world’s most powerful women on ONE magazine cover?!
The amount of influence these three ladies have over women of all ages and backgrounds is unparalleled. SJP, MObama, and KW, OR Carrie Bradshaw, FLOTUS, and Olivia Pope, (still powerful either way you put it) originally met on President Obama’s Committee for the Arts & Humanities. Supporting our veterans and military families is the important cause that brings these women together.
While Michelle Obama and Kerry Washington wore Narcisco Rodriguez, Sarah Jessica Parker wore Oscar de la Renta (look no. 21 from the last he designed before his passing). I love the closeness of the three ladies in the shot – which was achieved by SJP and Kerry Washington standing on boxes to match the height of the 5′ 11″ First Lady.
Joining Forces is the name of this worthy initiative that provides support to military veterans and their families via employment resources, educational programs, as well as access to health and wellness assistance. Created in 2011 by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden, this program seeks to equip our military families with expanded employment and education opportunities.
Many people in my family have served in the military, including my grandfather and one of my uncles, so I know first hand what it is like to be part of a military family. You have a special set of experiences that other military kids share but not many people outside of the service know what it’s like. Military families are often overlooked but a critical part of American society so I appreciate that the White House and others are using their voice to encourage our servicemen and women along with their families.
