She’s Got the Look

First lady Michelle Obama can add another title to her résumé: cover girl.

Obama will make history once more next month by becoming only the second president’s wife to appear on the cover of Vogue (only Hillary Clinton appeared on the cover, in December 2008).

The fashion icon – yeah, I said it – was photographed by Annie Leibovitz at the Hay-Adams Hotel, where the First Family stayed before the Inauguration.

The March issue of the magazine features a cover shot of Obama wearing a magenta dress by Jason Wu, who designed her inaugural gown, and a layout of the first lady in a black dress by designer Narciso Rodriguez.

As for why the fashion bible chose to feature Obama on the cover, editrix Anna Wintour writes, “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.

“It’s inspiring to see our first lady so serene and secure in her personal style.”

And on the cover of Vogue!
