From the Archives: Political Powerhouses in Vogue.
While many may see Vogue as just a fashion magazine, throughout the years, Vogue has consistently profiled influential female figures in politics. In fourteen administrations, only one first lady hasn’t been featured in their pages and our current First Lady, the dynamic and stylish Michelle Obama, even appeared on the cover in March 2009, mere months after her husband was historically elected into office. While we’ve always covered the biggest names on Capitol Hill (Condoleezza Rice, Hillary Clinton) we also have an eye on rising stars—Sarah Palin was profiled in our pages well before she was thrown into the national spotlight as John McCain’s VP choice.
