Good Housekeeping’s 125th Anniversary Issue with The First Lady

First Lady Michelle Obama is on the cover of Good Housekeeping’s 125th Anniversary Issue. The May issue was generating a lot of interest even before it hit the newsstands on April 13th. 

Making Up America was there for the photo shoot at the White House.  Assigned to do makeup for Editor in Chief, Rosemary Ellis‘s interview with the First Lady (see link above) and  for a Virginia family highlighted in the “Generations of Readers” story, the experience was the second one of a lifetime.   

Thinking back about the photo shoot, I wondered to myself about the First Lady’s ability to have it all.  How does she do it? Here is a highly educated career woman, mother of two children, married to the leader of the free world  posing with the ease of a high fashion model.  Whether or not you agree with current White House politics and how the PR  image is controlled, what the public deserves to know is that on the surface, she is a fine example  of womanhood. 

In contrast,  some are trashing the magazine because they don’t like the cover photo. Here’s a few links…. 

Irregardless of all the tough criticism, one thing is for sure, when it comes to the First Lady, she gets noticed.
