Michelle Obama on the cover of Vogue March 09

Michelle-obama-vogue-cover

The rumours about Michelle Obama's impending stint on the cover of Vogue started months ago, but now here she is on the cover of US Vogues March 09 cover. The First Lady was allowed to select her own outfits for the shoot, and appears on the cover in a dress by Jason Wu, who will no doubt be delighted by Michelle's continued endorsement! Inside she wears Narcisco Rodriguez and J Crew – both labels she's been seen in before, most famously on Inauguration Day – amongst others.

What do you think of this cover?

    Love the cover, love her, love what she wears. She makes me feel like even I can be super stylish.

    I’m not much into her.. was prolly all those speaches about “hard work” and so called poverty. I mean, I’m not one to judge, I’m not that poor myself (I have an ok job for a student), but I don’t preach about it.
    But she does look good on some photos, but this cover isn’t one of them. I don’t like who her hair’s done and it kinda looks like she has an overlap.
    Vogue, what happened?

    I love it, it’s just the right side of classy for the first lady, any more posing and it would be oh so wrong. I do love Mrs Obama though, hair does look a little mussy on top though..

    Hair looks pretty bad, I think, but the dress is great – amazing color on her, not too showy, but not too understated either.
    I would’ve liked it more, though, if they’d gone a bit lighter on the Photoshopping of her figure. We all know she’s really not *quite* that skinny, and I don’t think she looks any better edited than she does IRL (or rather, on TV or press photos).

    I love Michelle Obama so much, but she has a weird smile in this picture. She is a gorgeous woman. Surely that wasn’t the best picture Vogue had to choose from.

    I do really like the dress. I agree the hair & facial expression are not that flattering.
