Once again, Michelle Obama nearly stole the show this week with her smart look: fabulous, tasteful dresses; chic new bangs.

I know there are Big Issues to talk about, so does it really matter what Michelle wore to all the inaugural events? Not the way the economy or equality matters — of course not. But there's more to life than money and political debates, and that's what Michelle Obama is: A reminder that our country is a serious but beautiful place to live. It's important to take a moment to think about our values as a country, but it's also worthwhile to have a national moment that isn't about worry, danger, or budgeting. If the moment is about bangs, then bangs it is. I'll take it.

I'll take it in part because while Michelle is extraordinarily famous, she somehow also comes across like a regular mom, worried about her kids' homework, manners, and dinner. So when she gets dressed up, we moms look twice. When I get dressed up, I don't want to look like a celebrity on a red carpet — and I don't think most of us do. We want to look like ourselves, just super-polished and lovely. And she does. There's hope for us all.
