In Vogue: the First Lady Chooses Reed Krakoff For Magazine's April Cover

The rumors were true: Vogue today revealed that First Lady Michelle Obama is indeed the star of its April cover and, as suspected, she's wearing a Reed Krakoff dress selected from her personal wardrobe.

Photographer Annie Leibovitz shot the cover in the White House's Green Room, and also captured Obama wearing a sweater and ball gown from Michael Kors. In another portrait, the first lady drapes her arms around the chest of a seated President Obama in the Red Room.

On Tuesday, The Washington Post's Reliable Sources blog cited Robin Givhan as saying that Obama would wear something designed by Krakoff, who she's chosen for important occasions in the past. The first lady wore Krakoff at President Obama's swearing-in ceremony, and in her official White House portrait.

At the end of January, The Washingtonian reported that a camera crew was seen taking equipment into the White House to set up Leibovitz's shoot for the first lady's second Vogue cover. Leibovitz also shot Obama in Jason Wu for the March 2009 cover of the magazine, and the cover line on that issue hailed her as "the first lady the world's been waiting for."

Vogue has featured a number of women in politics — from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to former first lady Laura Bush — but none of them has enjoyed being on the cover twice.
