Michelle Obama kicked off her new Twitter account (@FLOTUS) and her 49th birthday with a new hairdo yesterday, sending the Internet into a tizzy over her bangs. It's a departure for the first lady, who usually sports a loose semi-bob or pulls her hair back tightly. But what do fashionistas think?

  • "Bangtastic," writes the New York Daily News, calling her new look "a chic, youthful new 'do."

  • "We're loving Michelle's new look!" writes E! Online.
  • "Super cute, Michelle O.!" is Vanity Fair's verdict, noting her bangs descend from a lineage that includes Brigitte Bardot and Taylor Swift.
  • "In an age of the overused term 'style icon,' Mrs. Obama proves again she is one of the few modern women to deserve it," writes the Daily Mail.
