Are you ready for some good news? Michelle Obama's cover for the next issue of Vogue is really happening!
Or so it seems.
The Washington Post has confirmed the initial reports that the glossy fashion mag held a shoot at the White House in January. Robin Givhan, the Post's former fashion editor, tipped off the newspaper that Michelle Obama was shot by Annie Leibovitz for the April cover of Vogue wearing -- wait for it -- Reed Krakoff.
We don't usually get excited about these kinds of rumors, but Ms. Givhan is definitely a trusty, in-the-know member of the industry. Of course, we originally speculated that FLOTUS' cover would debut for March, so we were a wee bit disappointed to see Beyonce's gorgeous face when our issue came in the mail.
But it finally seems like we'll have a reason to rejoice. Mrs. O wearing Reed Krakoff seems like a likely choice, too -- she's chosen his pieces for the Pritzker Architecture Prize Ceremony, President Obama's swearing-in ceremony this year and the inauguration that came after it. One could say the designer is her new Jason Wu (she did wear Wu on her last Vogue cover in 2009, after all).
Givhan added that the first lady was also shot wearing a Michael Kors skirt and sweater, which seem like more reasonable contenders for the Vogue feature. She certainly wears Kors' stuff enough. Unfortunately, no word on whether or not POTUS was snapped alongside Michelle, even though his schedule was conveniently cleared the day of the shoot.
We'll find out for sure next week when Vogue's April issue hits newsstands, but do you think we'll see FLOTUS' smiling face staring back at us when we retrieve our copy from the mail? More importantly, will she be decked out in Reed Krakoff duds?
See Michelle Obama's fashion!
