She's too cute—and the former first lady thinks so, too.
Three-year-old Parker Curry is once again a viral sensation, thanks to a Halloween costume that is the best follow-up ever to viral fame.
Back in March, a photo of Parker entranced by a portrait of Michelle Obama went viral. She was taking in the National Portrait Gallery with her mama when a fellow museum-goer, Ben Hines, snapped the photo and posted it online.
From there, Parker became a mini-celeb and the world loved her as much as she loves Michelle Obama.

Parker's love for the portrait demonstrated why representation matters so much, and after going viral, she even got to meet the former First Lady.
Now all this happened a few months ago, which may as well be a million years for a toddler. So when Parker's mom asked her what she wanted to be for Halloween, she was surprised by her daughter's answer.
"Flat out. No hesitation. Half of a second later. 'I want to be Michelle Obama,' and I was like Whoa," Curry told BuzzFeed News. "I thought she was going to be like, 'I want to be Elsa or some other character like that.' "
Alisha Welsh of Magnolia Lake Children's Clothing came through for Parker's mom, creating a custom-made dress in time for Halloween, just like the one Michelle Obama wears in her portrait.
Parker looked amazing, and even got a shout out from her role model.
We agree with the former First Lady. Parker, you totally nailed it. 😍
