*Michelle Obama has tossed her bangs to the side – literally.

While speaking at a screening of PBS’ “The Powerbroker: Whitney Young’s Fight for Civil Rights” in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, Aug. 27, the First Lady, 49, had the perfect lighting to show off her new blonde and red highlights, which she showcased with face-framing curls and side-swept bangs.

Her floral dress, by Duro Olowu, was accented by orange and purple heels.

Michelle made headlines in January this year after deciding to get bangs — and then quickly admitting they were mistake.

“This is my mid-life crisis, the bangs,” she joked to Rachael Ray in February. “I couldn’t get a sports car, they won’t let me bungee jump — so instead, I cut my bangs.”

By April, Michelle told Entertainment Tonight, “The bangs are a day-by-day proposition. They’re starting to grow out. [They’re] getting a little irritating. But it’s okay.”
