Michelle Obama is powerful in plaid while talking friendship, social media, and parenting.

Michelle Obama commanded the stage at the Obama Foundation summit in Chicago on Wednesday, wearing an eye-catching plaid dress.

The former first lady paired her look with strappy, black heels, $295 hoop earrings and a $2,000 chain choker with white diamonds and sea pearls — both pieces by Jennifer Fisher.

With husband Barack Obama listening in the audience, Michelle sat for a conversation about friendship, social media, and parenting with her poet pal Elizabeth Alexander.

“I love my husband and he is my rock, but my girlfriends are my sanity,” said Michelle, according to People. “And when you live eight years in the White House, and you can’t even open a window, you can’t walk out on your balcony without notifying three people, your walk outside is you walk around the same circle in the south lawn over and over again, because the thought of you leaving those gates requires 50 people’s attention, and work and convenience. … When you live like that for eight years, you need your girlfriends. And nothing is spontaneous. All our spontaneity was basically taken away from us. I even do this now, like, ‘Can I leave?’ I don’t leave until some 30-year-old tells me ‘Ma’am, you can leave now.’ I had to plan my time with my GFs that kept me grounded and brought me laughter.”
