Michelle Obama on the Cover of US Vogue
There is no smoke without fire: US Vogue revealed on March 14, 2013 that the First Lady Michelle Obama is going to appear on the cover of the April issue in the dress by Reed Krakoff, which she picked from her own wardrobe.
Annie Leibovitz is the author of the photoshoot, which took place in the Green Room of the White House. Besides the shot where Michelle Obama, a recognized style icon, wears the Reed Krakoff elegant cocktail dress in cobalt blue, she was also captured in the perfectly tailored floor-length ball gown with a stunning train by Michael Kors. In another picture she sits behind President Obama in the Red Room while wrapping her arms around him.
On Tuesday of the previous week the Reliable Sources of The Washington Post quoted Robin Givhan who said that Obama would likely be opting for the look by Krakoff, whose designs she usually picks as an occasion wear including President Obama’s swearing-in ceremony and the White House official portrait.
It is not the first time Michelle Obama stuns on the cover of the legendary fashion magazine: in March 2009 she debuted on the Vogue cover. That issue was also shot by Annie Leibovitz and the cover line described her as “the first lady the world’s been waiting for.”
Vogue used to feature the female politicians of distinct ranks on its covers starting from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to ex-first lady Laura Bush, but none of them were given the honor to appear on the cover twice.
This issue of Vogue, which will be thrown for sale on March 26, features the interview with the members of President Obama’s family. According to the sources, the major part of the interview will be dedicated to the Presidents’ daughters: 11-year-old Sasha and 14-year-old Malia.
