She appeared alongside some of the country’s political elites, some of the nation’s largest media companies, and some of its brightest stars at the WHCD, which is affectionately known as “nerd prom.” Elsewhere on the guest list, Kendall Jenner brought out her runway-ready glamour while the Scandal stars got a real-life look at the world they’ve been recreating on TV.

This year’s WHCD was also Obama’s last. Her lauded signature style was cemented for the nation almost as soon as her family moved into the White House, following President Barack Obama‘s 2008 election, and it’s something Michelle, 52, has continued in the years since.

But she’s already planning what her family’s first post-White House days will look like, in 2017. She told Today‘s Al Roker they’ll be headed “somewhere really, really warm.”

Of her own legacy, she told Roker, “I just want people to say, ‘Michelle Obama was a hard-working first lady who impacted people’s lives for the better and made us proud.’ ”
