Michelle Obama to Grace Cover of Vogue Magazine


Michelle Obama fronts the magazine's March issue in a magenta dress by Jason Wu.

First ladies dating back to the Hoover administration have been featured in Vogue's pages, but Obama is only the second to be featured on the cover Hillary Clinton was the first.

Cover is released Wednesday; issue hits newsstands next week.

<<In the cover photo, taken by Annie Leibovitz, Obama is leaning on a soft beige sofa at the Hay-Adams Hotel, where the first family stayed days before the historic inauguration. Obama is wearing a magenta dress by Jason Wu, who designed her inaugural ball gown. Her right hand rests under her chin. Her left hand folded beneath her. She is wearing a diamond that you do not often see her wearing in recent appearances. Behind her, light streams in between curtains.

Inside, a photograph shows her in a black dress by designer Narciso Rodriguez. She is standing in front of open French doors. Outside is Lafayette Park and in the distance you can barely see the White House, the seat of power. Behind her are the props of her profession: a laptop, a cup of coffee or more likely tea. A notepad, a pen. A folded newspaper. She is tethered to work by an old-fashioned telephone, the spiral cord stretched, the receiver at her right ear. She is not talking. She is either listening or on hold. >>

<<In the article, Obama tells Talley that she is settling in, trying to find a church to join and help her daughters get adjusted. "I'm going to try to take them to school every morning -- as much as I can," she tells Talley. "But there's also a measure of independence. And obviously there will be times I won't be able to drop them off at all. I like to be a presence in my kids' school. I want to know the teacher; I want to know the other parents." >>

4. Pickes was never on the cover of Vogue. Hillary was the first and now Michelle.

but she changed her mind. At the time she thought that it gave the wrong image.

9. She was on the cover of Star lots of times...
usually next to a head claiming she was going to dump the Deciderer.

10. Can't wait to see it when I go back to the
hair salon. My beautician gets VOGUE and it will be included on her collage for sure. :bounce:
