Michelle Obama appeared on the cover of the March issue of Vogue Magazine to talk about her new life and her role as America''s latest fashion siren.

Last November, she became the first African-American first lady of the United States, and this month marked only the second time that a first lady has been featured on the cover of the influential fashion magazine, the first being Hilary Clinton.

For the feature, celebrity photographer Annie Leibovitz captured Michelle Obama reclining on a beige sofa in a sleeveless magenta dress, a type of outfit she has by now become famous for wearing.

The piece was designed by Taiwan-born Jason Wu, who was also the creative force behind the crystal-encrusted silk gown the first lady wore for the inauguration balls on January 20.

Wu appears to be a beneficiary of what UK newspaper the Guardian called the "Michelle Obama effect," whereby her choice of stylist or designer propels him or her to instant fame.

Yet, Obama is careful to stress that she does not aim to become a fashion icon. She likes good clothes, but told the magazine she is also very pragmatic in her choices.

"First and foremost, I wear what I love," she said. "That''s what women have to focus on: what makes them happy and what makes them feel comfortable and beautiful."

She adds, "If I can have any impact, I want women to feel good about themselves and have fun with fashion."
