Michelle Obama Exudes Youthful Elegance On Her Final Vogue Cover As First Lady


michelle-vogueFirst Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama lands her third and Final Vogue cover as first lady.

She poses in Carolina Herrera on the cover and Atelier Versace in an inside photo (the same designer she wore to her final state dinner, to much acclaim), and she opens up about the role fashion has had for her over the past eight years in the public eye — and why she often chose surprising or up-and-coming designers. “It all boils down to comfort level: If I’m going to make you comfortable, than I have to be comfortable first,” she says.” So my first reaction isn’t ‘Who made this?’ But ‘Let’s try it on. What does it look like? Oooh, that’s cute. Oh, wow. I never thought of wearing something like this. Let’s put a belt on it. I feel gooood in this’.”


Asides giving up-coming designers a chance to shine, Michelle Obama also talked about leaving the White House as her husband’s 8-year tenure comes to an end.

“You know, there are little moments … Looking out on the South Lawn and the Washington Monument … It’s soooo beautiful. And for that moment I thought, I’m going to miss waking up to this, having access to this anytime I want,” she says. “But on the flip side . . . it’s time. I think our democracy has it exactly right: two terms, eight years. It’s enough. Because it’s important to have one foot in reality when you have access to this kind of power. ”

Michelle Obama graced the cover of Vogue twice before and was the first of the First Ladies since Hillary to do so.  L-R: 2009  and 2012. This cover makes it at 3rd in 7 years.
