Michelle Obama, April 2013 Vogue Cover

Vogue just can't resist Michelle Obama! And neither can we.

The First Lady strikes an elegant look, not to mention shows off those trademark toned arms, in a sleeveless midnight blue dress by designer Reed Krakoff for the magazine's April edition.

It's Obama's second stint on the famous glossy's cover after first gracing it in 2009. Her pose this time subtly echoes the official portrait she took last month as it features her new gorgeous hairdo, including those snazzy bangs the style icon gave herself in January to celebrate her 49th birthday.

Michelle fills Vogue readers in on how she and President Barack Obama are doing as they balance their official duties in the White House with being good parents to 14-year-old Malia and 11-year-old Sasha.

"Our job is, first and foremost, to make sure our family is whole," Obama said in the sit-down conducted in January. "You know, we have small kids; they're growing every day. But I think we were both pretty straightforward when we said, 'Our No. 1 priority is making sure that our family is whole.'"

Adds FLOTUS: "The stresses and the pressures of this job are so real that when you get a minute, you want to give that extra energy to your 14-and-11-year-old."

Obama at one point also jokes that in order to keep up with the girls as they enter their teens, America might be seeing them in some unexpected places—like "the clubs."

The latest issue of Vogue hits newsstands later this month.
