Michelle Obama graces the April cover of Vogue

Mar 15, 2013

You can certainly learn a lot about Michelle Obama in the latest April issue of Vogue. With just one glance at the cover, it's clear that this national leader knows how to accessorize. The first lady looks beautiful in a midnight-blue Reed Krakoff dress, with stunning statement earrings that add just the right amount of sparkle. Her look is timeless, tasteful and comfortable, which is something she strives for in her own sense of style. She, and President Barack Obama, sat down with Jonathan Van Meter for the Vogue interview and talked about family, work and style, among other things.

"If you're comfortable in your clothes it's easy to connect with people and make them feel comfortable as well," the First Lady told Van Meter.

Michelle Obama has already graced the cover of the iconic fashion magazine, back in March 2009. The latest edition aims to shed an honest light on the political power couple, but as clear supporters of the team, the editorial staff also wanted to showcase their admiration as well. While Michelle Obama's political stance and emphasis on healthy living has gained clout across the world, her appearance has also been an influence on the nation.

"Fashion has become more powerful," Constance C.R. White, author of "Style Noir" told The Washington Post. "Style can be used as a powerful tool, and any number of powerful women wield their power through incredibly style."

The mother of two and co-leader of a nation has shown many that you can be authoritative, powerful and beautiful all at the same time. Her tasteful accessories always add a bit of extra class to her ensembles, and are often one of the first noticeable pieces when she arrives on a stage - after her smile. If you want to emulate the first lady's look, you can purchase more affordable pieces like the 11.60 TCW Pear Cut Champagne/White Cubic Zirconia 18k Yellow Gold-Plated Drop Earrings, which will look chic and classy with any ensemble.
