Oh. It's a monthly.
Anyway, for people who follow fashion, this is good news.
She's only the second First Lady to be on the cover. The first First Lady? Take a guess. Here she is.
The fact that Obama agreed to the shoot won't come as a surprise to people who read the magazine because they've been lobbying for a cover since September. And according to Women's Wear Daily, the Editor-in-Chief hosted fundraisers for the Obamas during the campaign.
What can we expect?
If we were describing her dress featured on the cover, we'd call it a "vibrant pink Jason Wu sheath."
Ok, we cheated. We don't even know what a sheath is. That's how the folks at Women's Wear Daily describe it. We'll let them continue.
What's it take to get on the cover? Says the Washington Post's DeNeen Brown, "oomph."
"Starting with Lou Hoover, Herbert Hoover's wife, first ladies have been photographed for Vogue, but those photos have often appeared inside where they are well placed, not quite hidden, but not quite having the oomph of being featured out front," she says.
