Michelle Obama To Grace Cover Of Vogue Magazine.

It's official: Michelle Obama will be the first First Lady since Hillary to be on Vogue; photographed by Annie Leibovitz, Ms. Obama will appear on the March issue, which will be on stands shortly.

According to the Washington Post, Ms. Obama wears a magenta gown by Jason Wu, the same designer who did her inaugural ball gown. In the photo on the magazine's cover, taken by Leibovitz (who photographed her last year for Paris Match - see image at left):

  • Inside the magazine, Obama wears a Narciso Rodriguez dress and holding an old-fashioned phone. ("She is not talking. She is either listening or on hold.") What does it mean???
  • Obama tells writer Andre Leon Talley that she is still trying to find a church for the family to attend and that she's focused on her girls.
Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour says, "Change was the clarion call of Barack Obama's election campaign, though I don't think any of us at Vogue initially realized that would include the difference that was going to be made by First Lady Michelle Obama's wardrobe."
