Cover girl: Michelle Obama becomes the second First Lady to ever appear on the cover of Vogue
It’s official: Michelle Obama is the first lady of American fashion, appearing on the cover of the March issue of Vogue.
Every first lady since Lou Hoover – save Bess Truman – has been featured in the high-fashion magazine, but Mrs Obama is only the second to grace the cover.
The only other First Lady to do so was Hillary Clinton.
Mrs Obama appears wearing a magenta silk sheath dress by Jason Wu that she herself chose for the shoot. Wu also designed her inaugural gown.
Much of the eight-page feature inside is devoted to Mrs. Obama’s self-described role as ‘mom in chief’ to 10-year-old Malia and seven-year-old Sasha.
‘I’m going to try to take them to school every morning, as much as I can,’ she said. source
