Michelle Obama has finally joined Instagram!

FLOTUS took the opportunity to share memories from her trip to Africa with daughter Malia by joining the social network under the name @michelleobama. (At press time, Mobama had almost 18,000 followers which is sure to grow exponentially).

Barack Obama's stylish wife uploaded several pics from her trip including a shot of her and Malia at an all-girls middle school in Senegal and meeting artists on Goree Island, who wore such bright and colourful prints that they almost outshone the Jason Wu-favourite.

Obama, for her part, wore a summer-ready floral frock with a high neckline and sheer sleeves and then changed into tan slacks, a loose printed shirt and flats.

The First Lady captioned one of her pics with an inspiring quote: "'You all are role models for my daughters, which is why I brought them here today - so that they could be inspired by you just like I am." -First Lady Michelle Obama at MLK Middle School in Dakar. #FLOTUSinAfrica'"

We can't wait to see what else the First Lady of Style posts on Instagram!
