First lady Michelle Obama will reportedly appear on the cover of American Vogue for her second time in the April edition of the high fashion magazine.

Obama was photographed wearing Reed Krakoff’s designs, according to the The Washington Post.

Krakoff designed the blue dress the first lady donned at President Obama’s second official swearing-in on Jan. 20.

The Post reports that photographer Annie Leibovitz tried and failed to get the first lady to pose in one of the more creative, dramatic shoots Leibovitz has done in the past.

Obama first graced the publication’s cover for their March 2009 edition. Leibovitz photographed Obama for that issue as well.

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour was a top fundraiser for the Obama campaign and was floated as a possible choice for an ambassadorship in Europe after Obama’s reelection.
