Michelle Obama Covers 'Vogue' April 2013

Michelle Obama graces the cover of Vogue‘s April 2013 issue, on newsstands March 26.

Here is what the 49-year-old First Lady of the United States, photographed by Annie Leibovitz for the shoot, had to share with the mag:

On the importance of family: “Our job is, first and foremost, to make sure our family is whole. You know, we have small kids; they’re growing every day. But I think we were both pretty straightforward when we said, Our No. 1 priority is making sure that our family is whole.”

On her mother Marian: “My mother doesn’t do interviews but let me tell you: She is not long on pretense. She’s the first one to remind us who we are. And it’s been very helpful having her living with us. . . We can check reality against her sensibilities.”

On what she’s learned from her husband, President Barack Obama: “Well, patience and calm I’m borrowing. Or trying to mirror. I’ve learned that from my husband, that sort of, you know, ability to not get too high or too low with changes and bumps in the road. . . to do more breathing in and just going with it. I’m learning that every day. And to the extent that I’ve made changes in my life, it’s just sort of stepping back and seeing a change not as something to guard against but as a wonderful addition. . . that can make life fun and unexpected.”

actually prefer her to barack – if she wanted to run i’d vote for her!!

# 8

She comes across more collected, decisive and authoratative than he does. I think she’d make an excellent President.

Wow. Gorgeous photos. Captured her beauty inside & out.. love the picture with her in a black dress against the red walls… elegant. Good woman, trying to do the right things. Awesome.

She is ugly black woman who no one with ever look at her if she wasn’t married to the president

Wow lots of inches were shaven off her waist n hips lol talk about hypocrisy

my always half drunk trash collector would make a better president than either of these worthless posers

A+ photoshop makeover on the face. Hardly recognizable.

I would vote for your drunk trash collector over these 2.

Our gorgeous First Lady Michelle. Love her.

Looks as if they morphed photos of Michelle Obama and Tyra Banks.

Smart and stunning! Best First Lady since Eleanor Roosevelt!

but Eleanor Roosevelt was much hotter!

First Lady Michelle Obama is a gorgeous woman. Her husband President Barack Obama is a very handsome man. They make a beautiful couple and their relationship and family is one to be inspired by. President Obama is a good man and leader of this country.

It’s sad that the haters of these two must hate. Not use to seeing anyone different in their “White House.” Well get over it because thankfully these two have changed the outcome and outlook what the norm is expected to be! He will our president for the next 4 years! DEAL WITH IT!

I wish she wore her hair natural.

@happy times: not everyone here is american, sparky

What Jackie has and she will never have is class

@Helen: Jackie HAD. Jackie HAD class.

Their No. 1 Priority as the First Family to help America grow. They’re not a normal family and she should stop pretending they are.

I don’t dislike them but I’m not inspired by them either.
