Michelle Obama will grace the cover of Vogue’s March issue,becoming the second US First Lady to be featured on the American premier fashion magazine’s jacket after Hillary Clinton,a media report said.

In the cover photo,taken by Annie Leibovitz,Michelle is leaning on a soft beige sofa at the Hay-Adams Hotel,where the first family stayed days before the historic inauguration of Barack Obama,according to ‘The Washington Post’.

Michelle is wearing a magenta dress by Jason Wu,who designed her inaugural ball gown.

“It’s the second time a first lady has appeared on cover of Vogue,” its spokesman Patrick O’Connell was quoted by the newspaper as saying.

In the cover story,penned by Vogue’s Editor-at-large Andre Leon Talley,Michelle tells the article’s author that she is settling in,trying to find a church to join and help her daughters get adjusted.

“I’m going to try to take them to school every morning as much as I can. 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 teacher; I want to know the other parents,” the US newspaper quoted Michelle as telling Talley.

Magazine Editor Anna Wintour adds: “Change was the clarion call of Barack Obama’s election campaign…,though I don’t think any of us at Vogue initially realised that would include the difference that was going to be made by First Lady Michelle Obama’s wardrobe.”
