After weeks of speculating (and speculating), the first lady’s second cover for the fashion glossy has arrived — and it’s absolutely stunning. As expected, photographer Annie Leibovitz shot Michelle, who wore a blue and purple Reed Krakoff sheath plucked straight from her very own closet. The green background, the cool color palette and the choice to wear Reed Krakoff definitely reminded us of FLOTUS’ official portrait.
Vogue’s fashion editor Tonne Goodman led the team styling Mrs. O and the president, who appears in a photo inside the mag with the first lady. Also in the editorial is a third shot of Michelle wearing an elegant Michael Kors ball skirt and sweater. To accompany the shoot, the first couple was interviewed by Jonathan Van Meter, discussing parenting, marriage and their duties while presiding in the White House. Of course, since this is Vogue, they also talked fashion.
“If you’re comfortable in your clothes it’s easy to connect with people and make them feel comfortable as well,” Michelle said. May sure to pick up your copy as soon as it hits the stands, this issue will fly out of the stores, feel lucky if you have a subscription.
