Getting elected as president of any country might be a pretty big deal, but so is being First Lady. It’s a role that’s visible yet enigmatic. It can’t quite be defined but we do know that it’s extremely important and they’ve had a lot of positive impact over history, from Michelle Obama’s healthy eating initiative all the way back to Eleanor Roosevelt’s active role in policy, publicity, and civil rights. And let’s not forget that there are also many first ladies of other countries. 

1. Michelle Obama

Although time in the White House would age anyone, it seems like Mrs. Obama is like fine wine — somehow, she looks better than she did over a decade ago. Michelle was born in the South Side of Chicago and is a lawyer and writer. 

2. Olena Zelenska

The brave wife of President Volodymyr Zelensky is still quite the striking woman but looks more tired in 2022. Given the state of politics in her home country and the fact that the invasion has torn her and her country apart — she hadn’t seen him for nearly 3 months, at one time.

3. Brigitte Macron

A former French educator, Brigitte still has her signature blond hair but does look slightly different — in 2019, she had a three-hour cosmetic surgery. The facial rejuvenation surgery left her looking more refreshed than usual.

4. Hillary Clinton

There was no one more ambitious or powerful looking than Hilary back when her hubby got elected. Today, she’s run for president herself. It’s been decades, and while she has a few more wrinkles and gray hairs, she’s as inspiring as ever in 2022!
