First Lady Michelle Obama is the epitome of holiday sparkle on the cover of Glamour's Women of the Year issue (December issue, on stands November 10th).

Mrs. Obama is pictured wearing a sleeveless, Santa red cocktail dress and a chunky, beaded necklace decorated with two large bows.  Of course, we had to know what stylist and/or designer is responsible for Mrs. Obama's fab look.  Glamour filled us in: "She styled herself and wore her own clothes!" 

Mrs. Obama appears on Glamour's cover, because the magazine is honoring her for her commitment to mentoring young women.  Mentoring is very important to the First Lady, as she told Katie Couric, Glamour's new monthly columnist: 

"I think that mentoring is such a critical part of the role I can play in this position. I see how little bits of exposure and big bits of exposure really change my girls significantly, and I want that for more girls around the country and the world."

On a fun note, the First Lady also showed that she has the chops to be a dating mentor. (Move over, Millionaire Matchmaker! )  Mrs. O's advice on men?  Don't fall for dreamy eyes and a pretty smile, 'cuz cute ain't all that:  

"Cute's good. But cute only lasts for so long, and then it's, Who are you as a person? Don't look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul...When you're dating a man, you should always feel good...You shouldn't be in a relationship with somebody who doesn't make you completely happy and make you feel whole."
