When it comes to health and fitness advocates, there are few faces more recognizable than the FLOTUSÂ herself.Â Michelle ObamaÂ is set to grace the cover ofÂ Vogue‘s in-shape issue for April in a portrait taken by photographerÂ Annie Leibowitz.Â SinceÂ Anna Wintour is a fan of Obama’s (the headline for her firstÂ Vogue cover was “The First Lady The World’s Been Waiting For”), it only makes sense that soon after Barack Obama’s reelection, Â the first lady would appear in the magazine once again.
Apparently, Leibowitz andÂ Vogue attempted to convince Obama to do one of Leibowitz’ trademark shoots (“reclining in aÂ milk bath“), but the first lady turned the idea down. Why? I assume it is because she’s severely lactose intolerant, or else it is simply due to being the first lady, and first ladies are tend to veer away from milk bath territory. Although, it is kind of amusing to imagine that Obama gave a milk allergy as the reason behind declining such an offer, then
Rather than milk, Obama will reportedly be donningÂ Reed Krakoff, whose gorgeous navy dress she wore at the official swearing-in ceremony earlier this year. I, for one, am extremely stoked to see the exact dress she’ll be wearing (and how many “get the look” posts spawn all over the fashion world wide web quickly thereafter…which would, again, be way funnierÂ if the milk idea had flown).
