Excerpts from the interview after the click

Vogue’s
editor at large Andre Leon Talley called his interviews with Mrs. Obama
ahead of President Barack Obama’s swearing-in ceremony “one of the best
experiences of my life.”

“She’s so accessible, natural and
normal. There’s nothing affected about her.” Much of the eight-page
feature inside is devoted to Mrs. Obama’s self-described role as “mom
in chief” to 10-year-old Malia and 7-year-old Sasha.

“I’m going
to try to take them to school every morning, as much as I can,” she
said. “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 teachers; I want to
know the other parents.”

Being Vogue, though, the conversation
eventually turns to clothes. Mrs. Obama said she is aware of how her
wardrobe is being scrutinized, but she makes no apologies for her
choices — even the Election Night combination of
ripped-from-the-runway, fashion-forward dress and plain-Jane cardigan.

“I’m
not going to pretend that I don’t care about it,” she said. “But I also
have to be very practical. In the end, someone will always not like
what you wear — people just have different tastes.”

She did
choose outfits for the Vogue photos by labels she has worn before: Wu,
who made her inaugural gown; Narcisco Rodriguez, the designer of that
Election Night dress; and J. Crew, which she and her children have
famously worn.

Most cover models have their clothes chosen for
them by Vogue, or at least editors work as advisers. Not this time.
“She doesn’t need any help. She loves fashion and knows what works for
her,” Talley said. “She’s never had a conversation with me about, `What
do you think?’ or `How did this look? And I’m glad for that.”
