If Anna Wintour hasn't made her political agenda Waterford-crystal clear, take this cue from the latest issue of her publication: Vogue cannot and will not be strictly confined to fashion; It never has been nor will it be just that under Wintour's reign.

Hot off the heels of President Obama's State of the Union Address which was delivered Tuesday evening, the publication released its feature story with former U.S. Rep. Gabrielle "Gabby" Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, early Wednesday. "Who better to mobilize a lobby for gun control than former congresswoman and shooting survivor Gabrielle Giffords?" asks John Powers, who conducted interviews with Giffords and Kelly at their Tucson home, along with other gun control advocates like Michael Bloomberg, San Francisco-based investor Ron Conway, and others.

The spread, tastefully photographed by the legendary Norman Jean Roy and titled "Giffords's Mission," shows the 42-year-old former Congresswoman hanging on a couch in her home, holding her husband's hand. The feature story is part of the publication's annual spring Power Issue, which is covered by Beyonce this year.
