Michelle Obama to Grace Cover of Vogue

by at . Comments

The First Lady of United States, Michelle Obama, is making history again – this time by becoming only the second president's wife to appear on the cover of Vogue.

Michelle Obama was photographed by famed shooter Annie Leibovitz at the Hay-Adams Hotel, where the Obamas stayed before last month's inauguration.

While nearly every first lady – beginning with Herbert Hoover's wife, Lou, in 1929 – has been photographed for the fashion bible, only Hillary Rodham Clinton was featured on the cover, in December 1998, according to a Vogue spokesman.

Michelle Obama's previous portrait in the magazine back in 2007 catapulted her to fashion fame. Here's a look at that photo of "The Natural" ...

Michelle Obama: Vogue

In the March issue of the magazine, the cover of which appears below, Michelle Obama is seen wearing a magenta dress by Jason Wu, who designed her inaugural gown, and also pictured in a black dress by Narciso Rodriguez.

Vogue editor Anna Wintour writes, "Change was the clarion call of Barack Obama's campaign, but 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."
