Veteran Essence magazine beauty director and fashion and lifestyle expert Mikki Taylor uses Michelle Obama as muse in, Commander-in-Chic: Every Woman’s Guide to Managing Her Style Like a First Lady (Atria Books/Simon & Schus­ter). The book is about developing personal style, good health, and acquiring the tools of self discovery, as a path to empowerment.

Over her many years as beauty and cover director for Essence, Mikki Taylor became the woman Black women trusted most on the subjects of beauty and style, becoming highly recognizable around the country and in every market around the world where Essence is published.
Taylor understands that women everywhere are fascinated and inspired by the First Lady and aspire to her kind of confidence and effortless glamour. She uses Obama as inspiration to help readers put their personal stamp on everything they wear—no matter the price, the designer, or the occasion, proving that you can have fun with fashion, wear what you love, dress powerfully, and yet not be bogged down by old rules that have nothing to do with how you want to live your life.
Taylor has been featured on many television out­lets, including: The Oprah Winfrey Show, The View, TODAY, Weekend Today, The Early Show, NBC Nightly News, EXTRA, Inside Edition, E! Entertainment Television, CNN, TV Guide Channel, VH1, Style Network, Life & Style, WE-TV, CBS 2 Morning News, the Style Network, Pure Oxygen, BET, Mo’Nique’s Fat Chance and TV One.
