The First Lady in a lovely purple dress talking with Mike Krieger, co-founder of Instagram.

In honor of the one year anniversary of Startup America, the First Lady spoke with Mike Krieger, the co-founder of Instagram, the fastest growing social mobile startup in the U.S. today. He exemplifies President Obama's belief that "entrepreneurs embody the promise of America: the idea that if you have a good idea and are willing to work hard and see it through, you can succeed in this country. And in fulfilling this promise, entrepreneurs also play a critical role in expanding our economy and creating jobs."

Mr. Krieger moved from Brazil to California to attend Stanford University, where he studied computer science and cognitive science. In 2010, he and a partner founded Instagram, which now employs a talented, growing team of designers and engineers. After graduation, Mr. Krieger worked for a year on his student F-1 visa, later applying for and receiving an H-1B visa as a high-skill worker. Mr. Krieger wants to permanently stay in the U.S. and has applied for a green card.

James Gale must be having the time of his life. This 11 year old won a contest to be on national TV during the Super Bowl and get a chance to meet his NFL hero, Wes Walker, a wide receiver for the New England Patriots. He also got a tour of the White House from First Lady Michelle Obama, who we see below in a funky, 80s-style blouse and royal blue pencil skirt.  You know the 80s are back when the First Lady is sporting their style!

James has quite an amazing story, having been adopted from Liberia. Be sure to read more about him and the NFL PLAY 60 contest.

What a great way to end the State of the Union. Barack and Michelle called John Buchanan to inform him that his daughter Jessica, a missionary to Somalia, had been rescued from Somali bandits.

On a lighter-although certainly not as happy-note, we get a great look at the First Lady's amazing sapphire blue Barbara Tfank dress that she wore to the State of the Union, and she paired it with a pair of classy, strap-back black heels.

In a phone call from the U.S. Capitol immediately after the State of the Union Address, President Barack Obama informs John Buchanan that his daughter Jessica was rescued by U.S. Special Operations Forces in Somalia, Jan. 24, 2012.
