Supermodel and TV show host Tyra Banks stars in a rather bizarre photo story in the upcoming September issue of Harper's Bazaar. Banks plays Michelle Obama, Barack Obama's wife and possibly the next First Lady of the United States.

Posing alongside a Barack look-alike and two little girls, Banks is captured celebrating the win, in the oval office, visiting children in schools, and even in bed with Obama wearing a Harvard tee.

Tyra has some advice for Michelle in the interview, “Oh, I want her to not take herself too seriously," she says. "She’d need to know how to take a fierce picture, but at the same time be able to eat fried chicken, have grease on her fingers, and be okay with getting photographed like that, too. I’d want her to feel like every child in America is hers – to have a true connection.”

As we would expect from the fierce and usually outrageous Banks, she claims in the article that were she the first lady, her Secret Service code name would be, "KMFA: Kiss My Fat Ass."
