Occasions: First Ladies Day

Wouldn't you agree that a woman behind a man is a very powerful role that is rarely celebrated?  On this day, as we celebrate all the great men who occupied the most prestigious office in the world, let us also remember the significant contributions made by America's First Ladies.  

While their humanitarian efforts are most revered, I would like to pay visual homage to aesthetic contributions of America's First Ladies.
