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.
