Michelle Obama Vogue Cover

February 10, 2009

America’s First Lady, Michelle Obama, has received attention for her fashion sense since the presidential campaign began. Before the inauguration, the thing people most speculated about was who Michelle would be wearing for the big event and for the evening balls that followed the ceremony. She will wearing Jason Wu again (the genius behind the white ball gown), but this time she will be gracing the cover of Vogue.

Michelle Obama’s Vogue cover is slated for release with the March 2009 issue. Rumor has it Michelle will be wearing a magenta sheath dress designed by Jason Wu and will have an 8-page photo spread in the magazine. Annie Liebowitz will photograph.

Michelle follows in the tradition of almost every first lady since Lou Hoover with this Vogue magazine feature, but she is only the second to appear on the cover. Only Hillary Clinton has preceded her.

Obama’s cover appearance has been whispered about since the election. After all, Vogue was a huge democratic supporter and featured Michelle not once but twice during the campaign. The magazine even did an article on four generations of Biden women, which included Joe Biden’s wife, Jill.

In the Vogue interview, Michelle discusses her role as “mom-in-chief” and what it will be like to raise Malia and Sasha in the White House. But being a fashion magazine, she also talked clothes, and even what it’s like having her fashion choices scrutinized by the public:

“I’m not going to pretend that I don’t care about it. But I also have to be very practical. In the end, someone will always not like what you wear — people just have different tastes.”

The magazine hits shelves soon.
