Color on the Cover: Michelle Obama Lands on Coveted March Vogue Cover

The First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama lands on the coveted spring issue of Vogue!

In a magenta silk sheath dress by Jason Wu (the same designer of her inaugural gown), the First Lady was interviewed by Editor At Large Andre Leon Talley, who called his interviews “one of the best experiences of my life.”

The self-described “mom in chief” to daughters Malia and Sasha also dishes on fashion to the prestigious mag.

“I’m not going to pretend that I don’t care about it,” she said. “But I also have to be very practical. In the end, someone will always not like what you wear — people just have different tastes.”

Michelle Obama Chooses Designers Isabel Toledo, Jason Wu And J.Crew For The Inauguration

First Lady Michelle Obama donned a shimmering yellow wool sheath dress and matching coat by Cuban American designer Isabel Toledo to the inauguration of her husband Barack Obama.

Michelle discovered the work of 47 year-old Toledo through Ikram Goldman, a Chicago-based boutique shop that carries her other favored designers -Thakoon and Narciso Rodriguez.

Toledo says Michelle chose the lemongrass-colored dress for the optimism it represents.

Topping off her outfit, Michelle sported a pair of green leather gloves from J.Crew and green Jimmy Choo kitten heel pumps.

Daughters Malia and Sasha also wore pieces from J.Crew’s children’s line Crewcuts. Ten year-old Malia wore a double-breasted periwinkle-blue coat with a blue-ribbon bow at the waist and her sister Sashs,7, wore a pink coat with orange scarf and matching satin belt.

The evening’s inaugural balls saw Michelle in a white one-shoulder floor length gown by 26 year-old Taiwanese-born designer Jason Wu. A young designer who has only been showing collections since 2006, Wu found out his dress had been selected like everyone else did when the First-Lady walked out in it.

President Obama showed off his wife to a cheering crowd saying, “First of all, how good-looking is my wife?”

The First Couple danced to the song “At Last,” a 1940s song made famous by blues singer Etta James.
