Yesterday news broke that a top secret photo shoot was going down at the White House when the Washingtonian spotted a team from Vogue scurrying across the White House lawn with cameras, making their way into the First Couple’s home. It seems that First Lady Michelle Obama may be gracing the cover of the iconic magazine’s March issue.
It is being said that famed celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz was responsible for capturing the magic on Vogue‘s behalf.
So far there’s no word on what the FLOTUS wore for the shoot, but according to reports, Vogue generally allows their subjects to choose from a variety of carefully selected clothing, shoes and accessories.
It hasn’t been revealed whether or not President Obama had any involvement in the shoot; however, his public schedule was open yesterday.
At this point, these are all speculations made by the Washingtonian and Vogue has declined to comment on them, but the idea of the First Lady appearing on the cover of Vogue‘s March issue isn’t exactly far fetched since she appeared on the fashion publications March issue back in 2009, which was also captured by Annie Leibovitz. When asked about the First Lady’s potential cover shoot, Vogue‘s Director of Communications, Megan Salt responded “We never comment on rumors about future editorial.” This news comes in the wake of previous circulating rumors that Beyoncé would be on the cover of the publication’s March issue.
Mark Knoller, CBS News’ White House Correspondent, however did confirm Vogue‘s presence at the White House yesterday via his Twitter page.
“Today at the WH. No public events on the president’s schedule today, though Vogue is bringing camera gear into the WH this morning,” he tweeted.
He also revealed that a Vogue rep. was also present on the presidential press plane earlier this week.
“Vogue also had a representative on the press plane to and from Las Vegas Tuesday.”
While all of this is exciting, all we can really do is wait for the issue to hit newsstands. I think that Bey would make a wonderful cover girl, but we’ve been seeing a whole lot of her lately. I would love to see to Mrs. Obama grace the cover again.
