Los Angeles, Mar 14 (EFE).- First lady Michelle Obama will appear on the cover of Vogue's April edition, marking the second time she has graced the cover of the fashion magazine, media reports said.

The 49-year-old Obama appeared on the cover of Vogue's March 2009 issue.

The issue featuring Obama, who will sport an outfit by Reed Krafoff on the cover, hits newsstands next week.

The photograph of the first lady was taken by Annie Leibovitz, but it is not know if Obama wears her own outfits or ones provided for the shoot in the photo spread.

The first wife of a president profiled in the pages of Vogue was Lou Hoover, the wife of President Herbert Hoover, who was in office from 1929 to 1933.

Hillary Clinton, however, was the first wife of a president featured on the fashion magazine's cover.

Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour was a big donor to the Obama re-election campaign.
