Anne-Marie Curtis  Editor-in-Chief at ELLE UK.

To say this was a career high does not even begin to explain how I felt the day this picture was taken. I feel so incredibly honoured to have being part of a group of Hearst Editors given a private audience with the former First Lady of the United States of America. On a sunny September day in New York we watched @michelleobama being interviewed by @Oprah onstage at Hearst Towers in midtown Manhattan. The atmosphere was not surprisingly nothing short of electric. In a room packed to the gills with power players,the front row of the audience was made up exclusively of young female students from two local schools: the Harlem Village Academy and The Young Women’s Leadership school of Astoria. I was lucky enough to sit next to the principal of one of them and it was clear that this would be a life-changing moment for these girls, and certainly one they would remember for ever. On stage the conversation covered everything from the personal to the political (Read the full interview in our Dec issue on sale Wed Nov 14th). Later Michelle told me how she was relishing the ‘freedom’ of dressing for herself, rather than in the knowledge she was going to be scrutinised by millions of eyes. She also told me how she has always tried to use her fashion status with purpose,championing designers from around the world. “You know,there’s some people who enjoy that limelight. To me,it could be a bit oppresive. So I made sure that I could do good with the spotlight I had.”. This to me pretty much sums up why we all collectively find this former first lady such a huge inspiration and role model. That she uses her fame and influence first and foremost to effect positive change and that we are always reminded no matter how succesful or famous you may be it’s possible to navigate with grace,dignity and most importantly a sense of remembering who you are and where you began your journey. A true wonder woman and inspiration and yes a ‘pinch me’ moment for me of epic proportions. And thank you @roland_mouret for solving my “What does one wear to meet Mrs Obama?” conundrum with this flotus-appropriate skirt. ⚡️⚡️⚡️#wonderwomanextraordinaire #thefutureisfemale #bemoremichelle ⭐️💫⭐️💫⭐

Homeward Bound. And here I am saying goodbye to my room at @sohograndhotel where have being staying on and off since it first opened in 1996 the same year @wallpapermag launched. Though have stayed at many other places all over the city this place really does feel like home to me. Some of the doormen including the brilliant Jose have being there since that first week. It is one of the best feelings getting out of my car from the airport and bring greeted by a familar,friendly face. We’ll always have a chat about our families....Jose’s kids were babies when the hotel first opened and are now all in college. I was also staying here on the morning of 9/11 and will never forget @mrjulianvogel and I watching in disbelief as the towers fell and the terrible sadness and how brilliant all the staff were that day taking care of people who had walked up from the wreckage covered in dust and in deep shock. As to the hotel it has undergone many changes and refurbishments since first stayed but essentially always has the same feel. Relaxed but chic,super efficient but friendly, cosy but still with that sense of theatre that all good hotels have as well as housing one of the best bar/meeting areas I think in the city and just a sense of warmth and conviviality that you really can’t manufacture. In short everything a great hotel should be. So thank you @sohograndhotel for another wonderful stay. Oh and on the subject again of re-wearing things this @junyawatanabeofficial jacket I bought 6 months ago passed the @ecoage #oliviafirth #30wearschallenge some time ago. I wear it with everything and morphs from weekend to work to travel stalwart depending on what I put it with and just makes me feel fabulous every time I wear it. And yes my hair is wet because it’s way too early for a hairdryer. #traveldiaries #newyorkstories. #elleontour @elleuk 🗽🌇❤️💯
