Yellow Michelle Obama

Goodlifer: Yellow Michelle Obama

At the National Design Awards, Michelle Obama came out to greet the honorees in the White House’s East Room, wearing a sunny yellow suit. A Goodlifer-yellow suit.

For the past few years, when the awards ceremony and luncheon was hosted by the former First Lady, Laura Bush, they have been quite solemn affairs. Some designers even chose to boycott the 2006 luncheon, because of their belief that the current administration of George W. Bush has used the mass communication of words and images in ways that have seriously harmed the political discourse in America


Yellow represents positivity, it’s happy and fresh and will never go unnoticed. “The color yellow exemplifies the warmth and nurturing quality of the sun, properties we as humans are naturally drawn to for reassurance,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

Michelle, we fell in love with you when you listened to us and planted that organic garden, now we love you even more. Read a full excerpt of the First Lady’s remarks here.

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
