How cool are the Obamas? The first couple, Barack and Michelle, hosted the first ever White House Poetry Jam last night. Th First Lady, who is a fan of poetry and said she had been waiting for this event from day one, attended the laid back affair wearing cropped white slacks, an asymmetrical top by Basso & Brooke, and her signature kitten keels. Performers included actor James Earl Jones, Chicogo poet Mayda del Valle, bassist Esperanza Spalding, and many more. The event was attended by over 200 friends and special guests of the first family and will be broadcast later on HBO.
