Legendary photographer Annie Leibovitz was spotted at the White House in early February, fueling speculation that Michelle Obama had yet another Vogue cover in the works.

A Washington Post report confirmed the rumor Tuesday a la fashion columnist Robin Givhan: FLOTUS is wearing Reed Krakoff on the cover of the April 2013 issue of Vogue magazine. The Post reports Obama also wears American-bred designer Michael Kors in the accompanying spread.

This marks the First Lady’s second cover for the fashion publication - her first being Vogue's March "Power" issue in 2009 where the fresh-faced FLOTUS was immortalized on a couch in a magenta shift dress by Jason Wu. The March 2009 cover was also photographed by Leibovitz who, in addition to her extensive work involving high-profile political figures, took the First Family's official portrait three years ago.

The issue hits newsstands next week. No confirmation from Vogue, yet. View our Fashionable First Lady Lookbook, below.
