On Wednesday, the White House released First Lady Michelle Obama’s new official portrait for President Barack Obama’s second term.

The portrait was taken in the Green Room at the White House on Feb. 12 and is a waist up close up; her official photo from 2009 was a standing full-body shot.

The first lady sits on a green chair wearing a navy and violet dress. She’s not bearing her arms as she did in her 2009 official portrait., but she sports new bangs, and a strand of pearls.
