Michelle Obama: Cover Girl

Mar 9, 2009 2:24pm

ABC News’ Yunji de Nies and Karen Travers report: Remember when the New Yorker magazine depicted Michelle Obama as fist bumping militant, with an AK-47 on her back? That summer cover generated a lot of critical buzz, but oh how times have changed. The magazine’s new issue, out next week, features a "runway" first lady — strutting the catwalk in three outfits — surprisingly with sleeves. Inside, the magazine features a short article entitled "Baring Arms," focusing on the first lady’s sleeveless fashion, accompanied by a picture of her favored designers Jason Wu and Thakoon Panichgul wrapped in an American flag. Lately, the first lady seems to be the Cover Girl-in-Chief. She’s graced recent covers of Vogue, People and in a first, will share the cover of Oprah Winfrey’s O Magazine with the media mogul herself. Grammy winner and actress Alicia Keys is featured inside Glamour magazine, dressed as Mrs. Obama, complete with Malia and Sasha look-alikes. — Yunji de Nies and Karen Travers
