Michelle makes Vogue cover wearing Wu

Well, Wu-Hoo.  🙂

Michelle Obama will be the ONLY First Lady on the cover of Vogue,  that is, except Hillary Clinton.


She appears here wearing a magenta silk sheath dress by Jason Wu, who also designed her inaugural gown.

She chose outfits for the Vogue photos from labels she has worn before: Wu, who made her inaugural gown; Narcisco Rodriguez, the designer of that Election Night dress; and J. Crew, which she and her children have famously worn.

Most cover models have their clothes chosen for them by Vogue, or at least editors work as advisers.

Not. This. Time.

She didn’t need any help.  She knows her mind about fashion. That we already know from previous choices.

There will also be an eight-page article.  Wow.

Reserve your March issue now.

Anybody got a sewing machine?

But, seriously, we’re in luck.  Avon has signed former Mademoiselle editor Mandi Norwood to write a Michelle Obama Style Guide, due for release in the spring.  “Not since Jackie O have we had a first lady become a fashion icon,” says Avon vice president Carrie Feron.

I’m sure I speak for all my redneck sisters out there — keeping it country…..

Can’t wait.  😉
