For real. The Washingtonian has the scoop, reporting on Thursday that a Vogue crewwas seen setting up camp in the White House residence, a.k.a. where President and Michelle Obama live. The Washingtonian also “hears” that photographer Annie Leibovitz is doing the honors, and that it might be for the March issue’s cover.
Another tantalizing tidbit: President Obama’s schedule is cleared for the day… meaning maybe he’s involved in the shoot, too? Squeee!
The Washingtonian couldn’t get a word out of Vogue reps, so no confirmation yet. But clearly the Obamas aren’t opposed to posing for Vogue: Michelle Obama famously posed for the March 2009 cover with bare arms (!). The Obama family has also been snapped by Annie Leibovitz before for their official family portait in 2009, which was super adorable.
Will this upcoming Vogue shoot be a group photo with the kids? A loving couple portrait with the President and First Lady? A solo glam shot with Michelle alone? We’re on the edge of our seats, waiting to find out…
UPDATE: Mark Knoller, CBS News’ White House Correspondent, confirmed Vogue’s presence in the White House today and also tweeted: “Vogue also had a representative on the press plane to and from Las Vegas Tuesday.”
