Becoming, which was published some days ago has been described as offering a more personal invitation into her life than any she’s previously extended. Talking about the book, the former FLOTUS tells Oprah that she likes her story and all the bumps and bruises that come with it and that’s why she wasn’t scared to write about her private life.

“People always ask me, 'Why is it that you’re so authentic?'… 'How is it that people connect to you?' And I think it starts because I like me. I like my story and all the bumps and bruises. That’s what makes me uniquely me”, she said.

The news making cover page is work aimed at supporting women and most of the work for the cover shoot was done by women. The pictures are by celebrity photographer Miller Mobley while her makeup is by Carl Ray. Her hairdresser is Yene Damtew while styling is done by Meredith Koop.
