See Michelle Obama's Second 'Vogue' Cover

Barack Obama has already said that he has a lot in common with Jay-Z (noting they both have daughters and wives more popular than themselves). Now in the April issue of Vogue, he’s comparing wife (and the magazine’s cover star) Michelle to Beyoncé.

Why? Because she’s glad that his high-powered job required him to get more suits and lose the pair of khakis he’s had since he was 20. “Michelle’s like Beyoncé in that song,” he jokes. “‘Let me upgrade ya!’ She upgraded me.”

Also on his style team: daughters Malia, 14, and Sasha, 11. “The girls and I are always rooting when he wears, like, a stripe,” Michelle says. “They’re like, ‘Dad! Oh, you look so handsome. Oh, stripes! You go!’”

President Obama isn’t the only one whose style has changed over the course of his administration; case in point, Michelle’s hair is definitely different than it was on her first Vogue cover in 2009.

But her style philosophy remains the same: “I always say that women should wear whatever makes them feel good about themselves,” she says. “That’s what I always try to do.” And with a second Vogue cover under her belt, it appears to be working for her! For more from the President and First Lady, visit and pick up the new issue, on newsstands March 26.

I would like to keep politics and entertainment separate. I feel like the Obamas are constantly being used as celebrities. I don’t think everyone enjoys it either. People need to realize that charisma and being able to run a country are two different things.

I have been an Obama fan, but they’re pushing the envelope just a wee bit much….Beyonce’s biggest fan is her own ego…she should be stopped, and Mrs. O is inching her way there also! Seriously, producing a movie about your own life? Looks like a ppor rerun of the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous… How bored are we Americans? I concur, our politicians should be more like Abe and less like a rock stars.

Nickie on

It is obvious that this woman wants to be a celebrity!!! She is more irritating than her husband.

Whatever on

Um, they are NOT inspiring me, nor are they inspiring any part of my very large circle.

Guest on

She Rocks! I love her. Everyone else can spew their hate but they!ve never been the first lady or in the cover of Vogue. So you all need to put up or shut it!

lynn on

Pretty from neck down. Face looks too aribrushed/fake. Isn’t this woman an intelligent lawyer? Why is she only being seen/known for her clothes lately? How about doing an article on something more intelligent?

Marilyn on

I agree – there’s a lot of photoshopping going there. Her mouth looks different, too.

Tammy on

I wouldn’t buy this magazine for the simple reason that she is on the cover. Give me a break. Of course her hair style has changed. She is using our tax dollars to change it!

Barbara Ball on

Don’t you just love photo shop?
