It may be just an advertisement, but it does grab attention. And it shows just how much the Brits really do love first lady Michelle Obama.

BuzzFeed reports an advertisement in the Sunday Times Style Magazine showcases a first-class stamp assortment that features the first lady in a profile shot, framed by soft white light and an attractive blue-gray background – and complete with a silvery queen’s crown on her head.

Today Style reports the reason for the ad: The magazine just named Ms. Obama is top best-dressed person in the world in its annual Top 50 ranking. Executives wanted to promote the issue.

Ad or not, the image is eye-catching. The British first-class postage stamp is normally reserved for the Queen of England’s picture, Today Style reports.
