Eating breakfast? Finally calling mom? Catching up on some news in Syria? Well, stop it! Michelle Obama got highlights! We're devastated to report that she officially debuted the new color OVER A WEEK AGO and we just noticed. Still, this is no bang-ageddon of January 2013. She seems to have gradually upped the color over the last month until the follicles reached their present state of "noticeably lighter." Our fragile hearts thank her hairdresser for that.
