    President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, were out for a Mexican meal Saturday night, a day before the first lady's birthday.

    The White House said the first couple dined with friends at the downtown D.C. restaurant Oyamel Cocina Mexicana. The restaurant is owned by celebrity chef José Andrés.

    The get-together Saturday night with friends wasn't specifically identified as an early birthday celebration for Mrs. Obama by the White House.

    There's no word from the White House on how she planned to mark her 52nd birthday Sunday. For her 50th, the president hosted a lavish bash in the East Room that included a musical performance by Beyoncé and a guest list chock-full of celebrities.

    Since arriving at the White House in 2009, FLOTUS became known for her keen sense of style, with many comparing her to Jackie Kennedy Onassis, the glamorous wife of former President John F. Kennedy.

    From her down-to-earth J. Crew garb to more high-end labels like Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wang, Mrs. Obama never disappoints her fashionista fans. And whether she's mixing prints, showing off her enviable arms or brightening up an entire State of the Union address in a marigold sheath, we're going to miss the anticipation that comes with waiting to see what Michelle Obama is going to wear at any given event come 2016.
