The White House today uncloaked the new official portrait of first lady Michelle Obama, taken Feb. 12 in the Green Room by White House photographer Chuck Kennedy.

Mrs. Obama's second-term picture immortalizes the bangs she debuted on her 49th birthday. Though she jokingly attributed the hairstyle change to a "midlife crisis," President Obama made clear that he "loves" the new look.

The president's new 2013 portrait, taken by chief White House photographer Pete Souza, came out last month:
