Rumor Alert: Michelle Obama To Cover Vogue

by Clutch


First Lady Michelle Obama sent the fashion industry into a frenzy during inauguration weekend when she wore Jason Wu to the ball and debuted a new hairstyle with bangs. It reignited an interest in Michelle Obama’s well-documented presence in the business of fashion. Her style of mixing high and low and accessorizing sheath dresses with belts and pearls is mimicked and praised all over the world. Items she wears, like the Tracy Reese dress at the Democratic National Convention, often sell out soon after her appearances. Given her singular style and influence, it’s only fitting that she grace the cover of the publication many consider to be the fashion bible, Vogue, for a second time (she first appeared in March of 2009).

It’s rumored that she was photographed for the cover of Vogue yesterday when the publication’s staff was spied moving cameras and suitcases into the White House. There has been speculation that world renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz shot Mrs. O for the March issue. This time, however, her husband President Barack Obama could be involved.

According to The Washingtonian, “the President’s public schedule is clear for the day, which could indicate he may be involved in the photography session.” It’s always great to see the First Lady acknowledged for her fantastic sense of style, especially by one of the top fashion magazines in the country.

Are you excited to see Michelle Obama on the cover of Vogue again, Clutchettes?

    Hell Yes.

    I’m always excited to see a picture of our mahagony, sexy, beautiful, smart, funny, classy, stylish and dynamic first lady. The first cover was underwhelming IMHO but now that the Obamas have secured a second term Vogue has the opportunity to really blow our minds. Either way the cove will be a collector’s item. God only knows when there’ll be another black first lady in our lifetime.

    BTW. Love the above pic

    She is the truth. Love that photo. Definitely picking up this issue of Vogue. Since Jackie O we have had a FLOTUS like this.

  • Gigi Young

    Not really.

    What does it signify? Vogue will still cater to whites and white models over blacks and other women of color. It’s easy to accept and feature Michelle Obama because she’s in a position where they can’t ignore her. Black women who are doing the damn thing without the benefit of being in a position where they have to acknowledge them will remain ignored and underrepresented. They’ll throw covers to Rihanna, Beyonce, and Michelle Obama, but nobody white chicks will get covers, features, editorials, and hype in every issue. Don’t play their game folks, especially when they always use “they had a low selling issue” as an excuse to never put a black face on a cover again.

    I don’t really have an opinion about Mrs. O being on Vogue, but this picture is so very captivating for some reason, and I’m not even one of the FLOTUS stans.

    Isn’t there something else richer to cover about her than her keen fashion sense? I’m serious people we have drank ALL the kool-aid. What about her educational trajectory or ideas about young Black girls in the hood. This is a great opportunity for Black Americans and our country but we are worried about how sharp she dresses….???? I like FLOTUS but it’s TIME to move beyond VOGUE let white women have it. What does that really mean for the masses SHM
