No iffs, just butts

President Barack Obama’s wife Michelle is the cover girl for the March edition of fashion magazine Vogue.
It is only the second time an American First Lady has taken the place of a model on a Vogue cover – the other was Hillary Clinton in 1998.
Mrs Obama, who was photographed wearing outfits she chose herself, says she is aware her wardrobe is under scrutiny.
“I’m not going to pretend that I don’t care about it. But I also have to be practical,” she told Vogue magazine.
Annie Leibovitz photographed Mrs Obama wearing a magenta silk dress designed by Jason Wu for the cover portrait.
