Vogue Magazine Wants To Photograph Michelle Obama As First Lady

Fab Flash: Vogue Wants Michelle Obama

UPDATE: Sources have confirmed that Michelle Obama will appear on the cover of Vogue magazine. Photographer Annie Leibovitz was reportedly spotted leaving the Hay-Adams Hotel, the place where the Obamas stayed before moving into the White House. We're suspecting Michelle will appear in Vogue's hefty March issue . . .

She's not even first lady yet, but Michelle Obama is in high demand. Vogue, who's shown no modesty in their support for Obama, wants to feature Michelle on its front cover. If Michelle accepts, she will be the second first lady to ever grace the cover of its magazine.

“Starting with Eleanor Roosevelt, it’s been a long-standing tradition to photograph the new first lady. So needless to say, we are very interested in working with Mrs. Obama. Precisely how is still being discussed,” said a Vogue spokesman.

The fashionable first lady, seen left in Narciso Rodriguez's red and black confection, would potentially be following in the footsteps of former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, who appeared on the December 1998 issue.

I love her, but I don't think it fits her right, and she just doesn't look comfortable.

Puh-lease! That dress is horrible! And she had to wear it during the big moment too. Whatever happened to the style that everyone was raving about earlier?

I don't like that particular dress but I like Michelle's style in general. She will probably hire a stylist if she hasn't already. Excited to see the Vogue cover if she accepts!

[No Kim -- they were -- you have some good points.] Ooooops -- * they were not address to you -- my bad. But looking at that dress -- the black in those sections (front, side, back) looks like it was designed to hide the sides and the middle. My eye is actually drawn to the red in that dress.

This is a really dumb thread. I have to say by that point in the evening it had gotten chilly and the "windy city" had started to get windy. That might explain the cardigan? :ponder: Trust me when she walked out none of the 100's of thousands of people there cared. We were just ecstatic to have been blessed with an intelligent, compassionate, and dynamic first lady.

I was sad about Michelle's outfit, Cindy's outfit, and Jill's outfit. Sarah Palin, on the other hand, looked fantastic. I have to admit I'm excited to follow what Jill and Michelle wear over the next few years. They're both usually pretty fashionable.

Getting kind of ugly in here. I think her dress is gorgeous. I really don't see why people don't like it. She looks amazing per usual.

Maybe she'll have a stylist now - IDK ???

Yeah, Cindy McCain's suit wasn't properly tailored. All women, of every body type, need to learn to dress in ways that best suit their bodies. I don't think any of the negative comments were directed at me, but if they were, I want to clarify that I am in no way criticizing Michelle's body type, just saying that she doesn't always dress to flatter it.

I think JCrew would have been a little too casual for the occasion. Do they have an exclusive evening gown collection that would be suitable for the First Lady??

:rotfl: ok foxie -- but we know what you're doing -- it's quite transparent. Those comments weren't innocent.

Are you disputing that she is, indeed HUMAN, and therefor has body flaws? Dream- we ALL have flaws, and I hate to break it to you, but Michelle Obama is NOT above that. Commenting that she should dress her body in a flattering way doesn't cross any lines except the absurd ones drawn in your imagination.

You committed on the dress -- which I don't care about because I like the dress -- where it gets out of hand is when you comment on her body type in a nasty way. That's a little over the top.

I think the sweater affects the overall look of the dress by changing the color balance/lines. But in the end, IMO it just wasn't the right dress for the occasion, the sweater and her. But no one can get it right every time. And frankly, Cindy McCain chose an equally unflattering outfit the same evening.

The dress was fantastic! She looks great and the dress is very flattering on her. She has a fashion sense that will rival Jackie O in my opinion.

I think she has a fab dress sense, she can never do ever do edgy because of who she is, all she can do is elegant and power dressing. The fact that she's picked that dress says a lot about her! She is wearing a non conservative dress and it's in red. Watch out America, she's a force to be reckon with

And you know -- I think her body type represents A LOT of women -- How many times have I heard women complain about magazines saying "if they only had REAL women" -- well Michelle is a real woman and she's in shape -- look at those arms -- hello!! Michelle looks great - you know it's one thing to not like the dress..... I can respect that - but when you mention her body you are probably describing quite a few women on SUGAR (and probably a few of your friends).

I wasn't really even paying attention what she was wearing last night, but it looks like a fun dress. If she happens to be really into fashion I say do Vogue! How often does that opportunity come along, seriously. Plus, if it's tradition, can't argue with that.

Of course they want her NOW...not two years ago. I hopes she says no.

I'm in the minority here b/c I actually like the dress and thought it looked fine on her. It's different, fresh, and not boring. Her fashion has a little flair. I dig that.
