First Lady Michelle Obama is gracing the cover of Vogue one more time before she leaves the White House in January.

The FLOTUS and her iconic, shapely arms have appeared on the cover of Vogue three times in the last seven years. According to the iconic fashion bible, Michelle is donning an airy Carolina Herrera dress on the latest cover.

In her interview, Mrs. Obama reflected on the work she has done in the last eight years— including initiatives concerning children's health, military families, and girl's education.

I could have spent eight years doing anything, and at some level, it would have been fine. I could have focused on flowers. I could have focused on decor. I could have focused on entertainment. Because any First Lady, rightfully, gets to define her role. There’s no legislative authority; you’re not elected. And that’s a wonderful gift of freedom.

Although many are sad to see the Obama's go, Michelle says that it's the right time to say goodbye. "I think our democracy has it exactly right: two terms, eight years. It’s enough. Because it’s important to have one foot in reality when you have access to this kind of power."

On Thursday Michelle Obama met with the future first lady Melania Trump for the very first time. While their husbands spoke, Michelle reportedly gave Melania a tour of her future home before sitting down to have tea and discuss raising children in the White House. We can only hope that Melania copies Michelle (wink wink) in terms of her grace and elegance.

Perhaps Melania will one day grace the cover of Vogue. It seems only fitting for the former model.
