Cynthia Bailey may serve as an inspiration to countless young women hoping to start careers in the entertainment and fashion industries, but when Cynthia’s looking to feel inspired herself, she turns her attention to one extremely famous face: Michelle Obama!


The 47-year-old model posted a photo of the First Lady’s recent Essence magazine cover to Instagram, raving about Michelle’s famed good looks and abundant helpings of poise.

First Lady Michelle Obama on the cover of@essencemag representing beauty, style & grace. #inspiration,” Cynthia captioned her photo of the cover. Beauty, style, and grace? Sounds like Cynthia’s describing herself, as well!

While Cynthia may set her sights on the White House when she needs to feel inspired, it seems as though plenty of her Real Housewives of Atlanta castmates consider her and hubby Peter Thomas to be pretty stellar role models, themselves!

During a recent interview with Straight From the A, Apollo Nida revealed, “I admire Peter. Like him and Cynthia, we don’t know what goes on behind closed doors but as far as what you see, they’re supportive … It’s unity. So for me and my wife, and Peter and Cynthia, they resonate with the relationships not with the individuals.”
