First Lady Michelle Obama appears on the March cover of Vogue, becoming one of two first ladies to be pictured on the famed cover, along with Hillary Clinton.

In the cover photo, taken by Annie Leibovitz, Obama is leaning on a soft beige sofa at the Hay-Adams Hotel, where the first family stayed days before the historic inauguration.

"It's the second time a first lady has appeared on cover of Vogue," says Vogue spokesman Patrick O'Connell.

In the article, Obama tells Talley that she is settling in, trying to find a church to join and help her daughters get adjusted. "I'm going to try to take them to school every morning -- as much as I can," she tells Talley. "But there's also a measure of independence. And obviously there will be times I won't be able to drop them off at all. I like to be a presence in my kids' school. I want to know the teacher; I want to know the other parents."

I thought the pictures were somewhat bland. She looks uncomfortable in them.
