Barack Obama and family will be making the rounds on even more covers once the September issues of the monthlies hit newsstands.Howie P.S.: More evidence of the "Press Tour":
And if you can’t get Michelle Obama for your cover, what should you do? Improvise — which is what Harper’s Bazaar has done for its September cover and a fashion spread, featuring Tyra Banks as first lady, wearing only American fashion, from Banana Republic to Badgley Mischka. “Michelle Obama, you’re one hot mama,” Banks proclaims in the story, adding she’d love to have Obama as a guest on her show. As for the ideal first lady behavior, Banks told articles/special projects director Laura Brown: “Oh, I want her not to take herself too seriously….She’d need to know how to take a fierce picture but at the same time be able to eat fried chicken, have grease on her fingers, and be OK with getting photographed like that, too.”
