Washington (CNN) — First Lady Michelle Obama is making her third appearance on the cover of Vogue as her days in the White House draw to a close.
The cover shows the first lady reclining on the grass in the South Lawn garden, her hair loose and her elbows propped up on a flower bed.
Inside the magazine, Obama describes a wistfulness at leaving White House life behind.
The first lady appeared on Vogue’s cover shortly after her husband took office in 2009, and again in 2012.
In photos by Annie Leibovitz, the first lady poses in Versace and Carolina Herrera on the Blue Room Balcony and the South Portico steps.
