What did Michelle Obama, who turned 49 yesterday, get for her birthday? Apparently, a whole new hairdo' and Twitter account.

As the First Lady's office unveiled her new Twitter identity this afternoon, @FLOTUS, the second tweet revealed her new blunt bob, with heavy bangs.

Dressed in a burnt-red, elbow-sleeved patterned jersey dress, the 49-year-old showed off her new hairstyle, reminiscent of Katie Holmes' chop in 2008, when she met with Inaugural citizen co-chair David Hall earlier today.Mrs Obama has always had shoulder length hair, but since her entry into the White House in 2008, she has so far preferred to keep her look loose and flowing - or tied back.

Her new cut, sharper, more sophisticated, comes in the wake of supermodel Karlie Kloss' new bob, after she cut off seven inches of hair late last year.The New York Times coined this return to shorter hair, 'The Karlie,' last night.

So far the response to Mrs Obama's new do' has been positive, with thousands of Twitter users agreeing in unison that they 'love' her new bangs.

In an age of the overused term 'style icon,' Mrs Obama proves again she is one of the few modern women to deserve it.

In the past four years she has adeptly walked - usually in kitten heels or ballet flats - the line between directional fashionista and every woman.

'Just like any woman, she wants to look pretty, and I think she's having fun with it. It must be fun to be a girl with a big White House closet,' said Kevan Hall, a Los Angeles-based designer that Mrs Obama has worn before.

She also makes 'conscious choices' about what she's going to wear, knowing that people will take note - and read into it, he says.

'Of course she thinks about it,' agrees InStyle's Foxman, 'but she isn't preoccupied by it. She thinks about it in the way that everyone else does.'
