MICHELLE OBAMA COVERS VOGUE MARCH 2009
First Lady Michelle Obama can be seen on the March 2009 cover edition of VOGUE magazine in a magenta Jason Wu silk sheath dress. Vogue's editor at large Andre Leon Talley interviewed Michelle while Annie Leibovitz snapped the portraits of Mrs. Obama at the Hay-Adams Hotel and as well as The White House. FUN FACT: Michelle became the second first lady ever to be featured on the cover of the fashion bible, after Hillary!
On her Election Night Narciso Rodriguez dress: Some critics made noise about the plain black cardigan the First Lady-to-be wore on November 4 in Grant Park over her Narciso Rodriguez dress. She is unrepentant: "I'm not going to pretend that I don't care about it," Mrs. Obama says of the criticism. "But I also have to be very practical. In the end, someone will always not like what you wear—people just have different tastes. Some will think that a sweater was horrible, [but] I was cold; I needed that sweater!"
On being mom-in-chief to daughters Malia and Sasha: "I'm going to try to take them to school every morning, as much as I can," she said. "But there's also a measure of independence. And obviously there will be times I won't be able to drop them off at all. I like to be a presence in my kids' school. I want to know the teachers; I want to know the other parents."
The March 2009 edition of Vogue featuring First Lady Michelle Obama hits newsstand this month. What do you think of the photos?
